Lady GaGa has triumphed over Adele at this year's Virgin Music Awards, voted for by 1.5 million members of the public.

The singer's latest album Born This Way beat the Grammy winner's collection 21 to Best Album in the poll.

Nick Forward, Editor-in-chief of digital entertainment at Virgin Media said: "The shock result for me was Lady Gaga beating Adele to win Best Album. Adele's 21 has spent a record breaking 18 weeks at number one, so for Lady Gaga to swoop in and win this award was a huge surprise.

"It just demonstrates the incredible power of her fan-base. The results are never quite as we predict but at the end of the day, with over 1.5 million voters, these results really do reflect the voice of the public."

Another surprise outcome was Cliff Richard beating Amy Winehouse to Legend Of The Year.

GaGa also won 'Best Track', 'Best Female', 'Best Video' and 'Hottest Female'.
