2012 Music Awards

The 54th Grammy® Awards aired last night. There were some great looks on the red carpet as well as fantastic performances. Much of the evening was devoted to the late Whitney Houston, including an incredibly moving rendition of "I Will Always Love You" sung by Jennifer Hudson as a tribute to Whitney.

 

As for the awards, the big winner was Adele, who took home six, including record, album and song of the year. She's now tied with Beyonce for most awards won by a female artist in a single night. Another big award went to the late Amy Winehouse who won a Grammy® for her compilation with Tony Bennett in "Body and Soul." Her parents accepted the award on her behalf.

Nicki Minaj is catching a lot of flack for her Exorcist/religious themed performance. I thought it was awesome. Katy Perry was fabulous, too, and Taylor Swift had an amazing set design for her song. It was a 1940s farmhouse theme.

The Grammy's were pretty good this year and I loved the performance at the end. I was suprised by some of the winners, but that gives me new CD's to try out.
