Lady Gaga was a double winner at the MTV Video Music Awards before the show even started in Los Angeles on Sunday.

The pop superstar picked up prizes for Best Dance Video (Bad Romance), while her Telephone duet with Beyonce won the Best Collaboration honor.

Both awards were announced on the red carpet before the prizegiving event started at the Nokia Theater L.A. Live.

It was destined to be a very big night for Gaga, who led the nominees with 13.
