Congrats to the big winners of the 2012 Grammys: Adele, Foo Fighters, Kanye West, and Taylor Swift! Adele picked up a whopping six awards including Album of the Year (21) and Record of the Year ("Rolling in the Deep"), while T-Swift won Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance for "Mean."

In her acceptance speech, Taylor said, "There's really no feeling quite like writing a song about someone who's really mean to you, someone who completely hates you and makes your life miserable, and then winning a Grammy for it." She even included this line when she performed the song at the Awards Show, "But one day I'll be singing it at the Grammys and all you'll ever be is mean."

The night was also filled with performances by the likes of Chris Brown, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Coldplay, Alicia Keys, Maroon 5, and Foster the People.

Among the performances were tributes to the legendary Whitney Houston, who died on the eve of the awards night. Jennifer Hudson sang the diva’s "I Will Always Love You" and ended it by saying, "Whitney, we will always love you."


Check out the complete list of winners on and share your thoughts below! Catch the replay on Star World at 10:50pm tonight.
