Mumford & Sons had a big night at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards. The band, made up of Marcus Mumford, Winston Marshall, Ben Lovett, and Ted Dwane, ended the night with two awards.

Mumford & Sons were up for six awards at the 2013 Grammys: Album of the Year and Best Americana Album for "Babel," Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for "I Will Wait," Best Song Written for Visual Media for "Learn Me Right" from "Brave," and Best Long Form Music Video for "Big Easy Express" with Edward Sharpe, Magnetic Zeros, and Old Crow Medicine Show.

The band took home Album of the Year and Best Long Form Music Video.

Mumford is tied for the most nominations this year with Kanye West, fun., The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach, Jay-Z, and Frank Ocean. The band also performed "I Will Wait" at the awards show, after an introduction from Johnny Depp.

"Babel" is Mumford & Sons' second studio album. A follow-up to the band's 2009 album, "Sigh No More," "Babel" received generally positive reviews and performed well commercially.

At last year's 54th Annual Grammy Awards, Mumford & Sons were nominated for four awards, but did not win any. The band was up for Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Rock Performance, and Best Rock Song for "The Cave."

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards were hosted by LL Cool J on Feb. 10 at Los Angeles' Staples Center.
