Grammy Awards 2012 Results: Adele Scoops Six Awards & Performs Live

Adele picked up every single award she was nominated for including 'Best Record', 'Best Song' and 'Best Album' of the year.

Adele made an astonishing comeback at last night's Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. Winning six prizes in total, including 'Best Record', 'Best Song' and 'Best Album' of the year in a clean sweep, Adele picked up every single award she was nominated for. The singer also performed 'Rolling in the Deep' live at the ceremony, her first performance since undergoing throat surgery last year which forced her to cancel all live dates in 2011. The South London singer received a standing ovation for her performance. She said: "This record is inspired by something that is really normal and everyone's been through it, just a rubbish relationship, and it's gone on to do things I can't tell you how I feel about it, it's been the most life-changing year." "Seeing as it's a vocal performance, I need to thank my doctors, I suppose, who brought my voice back." Rockers Foo Fighters scooped five prizes suited to their genre (including; Best Rock Album, Best Rock Performance, Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance), whilst rapper Kanye West also took four (including; Best Rap Song, Best Album, Best Rap Performance). The event last night was a particularly emotional one with many heartfelt tributes going out to Whitney Houston, who died the night before, and also to Amy Winehouse who received a posthumous award for 'Best Pop Duo/Group' for her song 'Body And Soul', a duet she recorded with Tony Bennett before she died last July. Whitehouse's parents accepted the prize on their late daughter's behalf. In a rather perplexing award, Bon Iver were named Best New Act, despite having released several albums since their debut LP was released five full years ago. Their self-titled album also won 'Best Alternative Album'. You can find a selected list of winners from last night's ceremony HERE.
