Tuesday 14 February 2012


It was more than a golden moment for the Briton who stole away the show of the day at the just concluded 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards. Adele was just more than a superstar on that day but a six time Grammy winner for the most sought after part of the overall awards. She was able to beat her other contestants to clinch the best album of the year, record of the year, pop vocal album of the year, best pop solo performance of the year, best short-form music video of the year and most of all the Song of the year.
What a night for Adele who ties with Beyoncé for the most awards won by a female artist in one night.

This year Grammy was one of a kind as the pass away of Whitney Houston coincides with the award bringing about some emotional and collective mood to all the attendees for the loss of this one time 6 Grammy award winner. To honor her, Jennifer Hudson performed an acapella version of Whitney Houston’s Record Of The Year-winning “I Will Always Love You.”
