Grammy Winners: Adele Takes Home All Six Awards She Was Up For

Queen Of Just About Everything Adele swept the 54th Grammy Awards on Sunday by winning all six categories she was nominated in: Album Of The Year (21), Record Of The Year ("Rolling In The Deep"), Song Of The Year ("Rolling In The Deep"), Best Pop Solo Performance ("Someone Like You"), Best Pop Vocal Album (21) and Best Short Form Music Video ("Rolling In The Deep").

Adele now ties Beyonce with the most awards won by a female in one night at the Grammys. She also performed her lead 21 single, "Rolling In The Deep", and drew a standing ovation from the crowd at the Staples Center at the end.



Ironically, Adele's 21 is currently the leader on Billboard's Top 200, and is just one week shy of matching the 20-week reign of Whitney Houston's soundtrack to 1992 film The Bodyguard. Whitney, as the world knows, died on Saturday at the age of 48.

Here's Jennifer Hudson's tribute to Houston from the Grammys last night.

    Nothing about the Grammy's is surprising..I had already predicted this year to be the year of "Adele". The recording academy doesn't seem to be particularly keen on diversity but they they have the occasional surges in conscience with regard to honoring quality and I suppose that is where Adele comes in. Well, good for Adele1
