Recap of the 54th Grammy Awards

This year’s Grammy Award ceremony was bittersweet. The untimely death of Whitney Houston shocked the music world and left a somber feeling at this year’s award show. Although we lost many great voices this year, it was also a year for comebacks and reunions.

UK songstress, Adele, gave a powerful performance of, Rolling In the Deep, proving that you don’t need any gimmicks, back up dancers or fancy effects. Just a voice. She also cleaned house, winning all six awards that she was nominated for, including album of the year. Not to shabby after coming back from throat surgery.
