Winning a Grammy is a huge deal for artists and producers. Winning 5 in one night is epic and the Foo Fighters did just that. Winning 6 in a night is beyond epic and before last night Beyonce was the only woman to have done it. Adele tied that record and for good reason.
Adele has launched into the American music scene in a big way. Her album “21″ is an amazing look at her emotional roller coaster, and I’m sure something that most of us can relate to. She shows how vulnerable she can be and at the same time demonstrates her strength and compassion. Her voice is powerful and takes you on a journey that touches your soul. Tender in one moment and overwhelming in the next. Winning at the Grammys seemed inevitable.
Adele won for Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Short Form Music Video, and Best Pop Solo Performance. ”Rolling in the Deep” and “Someone like you” were the two songs from her Album “21″ that stood out for the night. She Performed “Rolling in the Deep” live, which was the first live performance since her vocal cord surgery.

Foo Fighters performed their hit “Walk” which they won Best Rock Performance for. They also took home Grammys for Best Rock Album (Wasting Time) and 3 others. Dave Grohl (Frontman) pointed out that the “human element of making music is what’s most important, (it’s) not about sounding perfect, but what goes on in here,” pointing to his heart.
Over all it was an amazing night for Adele and so many other artists. I’m sure I’ll be bumping a lot more requests for these artists in the near future.
