Adele and Foo Fighters rule this year’s Grammy Awards, with multiple gramophones for Kanye, Bon Iver, Skrillex, Cee Lo, Taylor Swift and The Civil Wars.
Unsurprisingly, Adele scooped the Grammys, with six awards including the two big ones, Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Album Of The Year (as well as Best Pop Solo Performance. Best Short Form Music Video, and Best Pop Solo Performance).
The Foo Fighters nabbed five Grammys and swept the rock categories: Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song, Best Rock Performance, Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance and Best Long Form Music Video for their excellent doco Back And Forth.
Kanye West scored four Grammys but they’ll likely be forgotten as none were televised: Best Rap Album for My Dark Beautiful Twisted Fantasy, Best Rap Song and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for ‘All Of The Lights’ and Best Rap Performance with Jay-Z for ‘Otis’.
Bon Iver grabbed two Grammys, one for Best New Artist, with his self-titled record scoring Best Alternative Album
Skrillex grabbed two for Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites: Best Dance/Electronica Album and Best Dance Recording.
Cee Lo Green also picked up two for his ‘Fool For You’ single: Best R&B Song and Best Traditional R&B Performance.
Taylor Swift’s ‘Mean’ got Best Country Song and Best Country Solo Performance and The Civil Wars’ Barton Hollow won Best Folk Album and Best Country Duo Performance.
Other winners included Chris Brown, Tony Bennett, and Betty White. Check out the list below.
