Video of the Year – “Bad Romance”

Best Collaboration – “Telephone” feat. Beyonce
Best Dance Video – “Bad Romance”
Best Choreography – “Bad Romance”
Best Direction – “Bad Romance”

She also shared the stage with a group of former US soldiers who’d been discharged from service due to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the “policy of the United States’ military that forbids gay and lesbian soldiers from being open about their sexuality,” according to a press release.

Gaga has asked fans to join her and the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) in helping repeal the government’s policy by visit the SLDN’s website here.
