Your 2012 Grammy Award Winners

Illustration for article titled Your 2012 Grammy Award Winners

It wasn't all for happy reasons, but tonight's Grammys were certainly more interesting than a lot of years past. Whitney Houston's death hung over the proceedings, but there were plenty of fun moments too. Adele made her triumphant return to the stage—and basically won all of the Grammys too. Chris Brown looked like an idiot and sang like one too. Rihanna sounded and looked great. The Beach Boys gave a charming if slightly uneven performance. Jennifer Hudson gave Whitney a proper send off. Nicki Minaj got crazy—maybe a little too crazy—and Paul McCartney shut the evening down with a rendition of "Golden Slumbers."

Lady GaGa looked very put out. I must admit that I cackled in glee. She'll probably speak out about throat surgery soon...

Also, short notice, I know, but that was NOT a tribute. They couldn't have told Paul McCartney to sit his ass down and play a five minute clip show?
