Lady Gaga cried as she picked up the award for International Breakthrough Act tonight (February 16) at the Brit Awards 2010.

Picking up her first award of the night, the singer – who turned up on the red carpet in a beehive and huge white dress – was overcome with emotion.

"I love my fans, thank you, my fans in the UK," she said. "I can't tell you how much this means to me."

She also namechecked fashion designer Alexander McQueen for the second time this evening (the first was during a performance medley of her songs). McQueen passed away last week and had worked with Gaga several times.

The acts nominated for International Breakthrough Act were:

Animal Collective
Daniel Merriweather
Empire Of The Sun
Lady Gaga
Taylor Swift
