Robert Plant and Alison Krauss win Five Grammys

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, in a night that will crush Zeppelin fans hoping this whole "Robert Plant as a mediocre crooner" thing will go away, won five Grammys including album of the year.
Sixty-year-old Led Zeppelin belter Robert Plant and 37-year-old bluegrass star Alison Krauss led the way with five Grammy Award wins, including album and record of the year, thanks to their collaborative CD.

Plant and Krauss won two Grammys for Raising Sand -- album of the year and contemporary folk/Americana album -- and three more for songs from that album: Killing The Blues won for country collaboration with vocals, Rich Woman for pop collaboration with vocals, and Please Read The Letter for record of the year.

Ironic that they call him a belter, now that he no longer is belting them out.

Plant and Krauss are currently in pre-production for a follow up to Raising Sand.
