Fun.'s "We Are Young" picked up song of the year early Sunday night. They also performed their new single "Carry On."

Fun.'s sophomore album, "Some Nights," was up for album of the year against Ocean, The Black Keys and Jack White as well as eventual winner Mumford & Sons.

Fun. was also nominated for best pop vocal album for "Some Nights," and record of the year and best pop duo/group performance for "We Are Young."
