The British singer Adele scooped song of the year for Rolling in the Deep along with five other Grammys, while the Foo Fightes won five awards. Here is the list of winners in full.
A glowing Adele did not disappoint, nor was she disappointed. She won six Grammys, including the Big Three: song and record of the year for “Rolling in the Deep,” and album of the year for “21.” Earlier in the night, she thanked “the doctors who brought my voice back.” That voice sound a touch raspy at points, but her resolve surged as she powered through “Rolling in the Deep.” Without much more than a few hand gestures and a couple of shy smiles, she commanded the screen like few performers during the 3 ½-hour nationally televised broadcast from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. A great song and a great voice will do that for you.
She won the Record of the Year - Rolling in the Deep. Song of the Year - Rolling In the Deep. Album of the Year - 21. Best Pop Solo Performance - Someone like you. Best Pop Vocal Album - 21, and Best Short Form Music Video.
Kanye West led the nominations with seven mentions including song of the year and best rap-sung collaboration.
The night's other big winners were Grohl's Foo Fighters, who won five Grammys. Kanye West, who was the night's top nominee with seven, won four awards.
