Adele six grammys

While Whitney Houston’s untimely death cast a dark cloud over the 54th Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb 12), but that didn’t stop the show from go on.

There were some big winners and plenty leasers when the show pulled the curtain down. British songbird Adele, who walked away the Grammy’s big winner with six trophies, was the night’s biggest winner, including Record and album of the year.

Adele’s sophomore album, 21, was named album of the year — beating out the likes of Lady Gaga, the Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars, and Rihanna — while her single “Rolling in the Deep” won Song and Record of the year.

Foo Fighters went home second with five awards including Best Rock album, and rapper Kanye West came in third with four trophies, including Best Rap Album for his 2010 album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.
