Fantasia wins first Grammy
Fantasia was the only Idol to win Sunday. Adam Lambert's “Whataya Want From Me” lost Best Male Pop Vocal Performance to Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are” and Carrie Underwood's "Temporary Home" lost in the Best Female Country Vocal Performance to Miranda Lambert for “The House that Built Me."
Fantasia's first album, Free Yourself, earned three Grammy nominations in 2006. Her second, Fantasia, received three Grammy nominations in 2008.
Fantasia becomes the fourth Idol to receive a Grammy, joining Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, and Jennifer Hudson in this elite women-only circle. Other Idols who have been nominated in the past include Ruben Studdard, Chris Daughtry, Ace Young, and Mandisa.
