Grammy Awards 2012: Who Were The Winners?


Adele, Bon Iver, Taylor Swift take home the big prizes

Sunday night, we were treated to a night of music, out-there costumes and some serious Whitney Houston appreciation at the 54th annual Grammy Awards.

The LL Cool J-hosted event was actually rather engaging as far as awards shows go--there were surprise wins (Bon Iver), amazing performances (Jennifer Hudson, Adele, Bonnie Raitt and Alicia Keys, Taylor Swift) and cute boys (seriously, Foster The People, how did we not know?).

Sure, the untimely and as-yet-unexplained death of Whitney Houston the day before cast a shadow over the entire evening, but for the first time in years, the Grammys felt exciting and vital. Check out the full list of winners (and one of our favorite performance of the night) below.
