Adele Leads 54th Grammy Award Winners

February 12th, 2012

This year’s Grammy Awards came and went with a celebration for Adele and a commemoration for Whitney Houston.

Adele pulled a clean sweep, winning all six of her nominations. “The first thing I wanna say is: ‘Mom, girl did good!’ ” said the British singer, pulling the first Grammy sweep since Frank Sanatra’s nine trophy prize in 2000. She also put on a silencing performance of Rolling in the Deep. It was her first time on stage, since having throat surgery five months ago, and was met with a standing ovation.

R&B legend Houston was also referenced throughout the show, after her recent death on Saturday night. Many artists gave a few words of respect for the late-singer, including host LL Cool J who started off  the evening by saying a brief  “prayer for a woman we loved, for a fallen sister.” Jennifer Hudson also performed a nostalgic and emotional version of I Will Always Love You to pay tribute to Houston’s hit song.

Here’s a list of last night’s winners during the broadcast:

Record of the Year: Adele’s Rolling in the Deep
