Adele Big Winner At Grammy Awards 2012, Full Winners List

Filed under : Celebrity News

British singer Adele became the biggest winner at the Grammy Awards 2012. She won six Grammies at an awards ceremony overshadowed by the death of Whitney Houston.

The six-pack of gongs for Adele was a jubilant way to mark her comeback from throat surgery, and the singer dedicated one of the prizes to the doctors who saved her voice. The singer was forced to undergo laser throat surgery after being diagnosed with a vocal cord haemorrhage. The condition forced her to cancel a string of UK concerts at the end of last year and she has kept a low profile since going under the knife.

It was the phenomenal success of her album 21 that led 23-year-old Londoner Adele to so many Grammy victories. She declared, “Girl did good” after accepting her awards, and she surely did. She wowed the Los Angeles audience with her first live performance since undergoing vocal cord surgery last November. Without the surgery she risked losing her voice forever.

“It’s been a life-changing year.”

Her 2012 Grammy awards included album of the year for 21 and record and song of the year for the worldwide hit, Rolling In The Deep.

That meant Adele matched Beyonce’s 2011 record for most Grammy wins in a night by a female act.

But a big part of last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony belonged to Whitney Houston as star after star paid tribute to the iconic singer of the 80s and 90s, who was found dead in a bathtub the day before the ceremony.

Another deceased singer, Amy Winehouse, received an accolade. She scooped a posthumous award for best pop duo/group performance. Winehouse was found dead in bed last year, after a battle to overcome drug and alcohol addiction.

The 27-year-old’s parents Mitch and Janis jointly accepted the Grammy for her collaboration with Tony Bennett on the track Body And Soul.

“We shouldn’t be here. Our darling daughter should be here. These are the cards that we’re dealt,” said Mr Winehouse after he was called on stage by Bennett.
