Those scoring coveted awards at the March 4 ceremony of Echo Awards have been revealed in a ceremony which took place at Messe Berlin. Lady GaGa and Robbie Williams were given a prize each along with Depeche Mode and Green Day.
GaGa, who didn't attend the show, won Best International Female Artist. The dance queen successfully pushed aside the likes of Beyonce Knowles, Whitney Houston, Marit Larsen and Pink.
Williams took home Best International Male Artist. He won over such contenders as David Guetta, Mark Knopfler, Milow and Bruce Springsteen. When he came onto the stage to collect his trophy from German goalkeeper Oliver Kahn, the Take That's former member showed off his football skill by kicking a ball to the audience.
Depeche Mode received Best International Pop/Rock Group, beating U2, a-ha, Black Eyed Peas and Razorlight. Green Day, on the other hand, was named Best International Rock/Alternative/Heavy Metal Act, topping Billy Talent, Kings of Leon, Mando Diao and Placebo.
Lady GaGa won two more kudos, one for Best International Newcomer and the other for Hit of the Year.
