    Standing ovation for Adele. A very very soulful tribute for Whitney by Jennifer Hudson. A head-bang party songs from Katy Perry & Rihanna. What more can we ask for? Well, i feel incomplete, Christina Aguilera is missing. When i was a kid, when i heard about Grammy Awards, i always think of Christina, i dunno why. 🙂 I thought, Etta James tribute will be done by Queen Xtina. 🙂

    I was deeply disappointed. Stayed up till 6 in the morning and in the end they didn’t even give one award for Gaga. She deserved album of the year in my opinion. I love Adele, but she got way overrated. I don’t know what Katy Perry is thinking nowadays – I mean blue, Katy? Really? Nicki was quite good, but that pope act seemed a bit cheap for me. There were good moments too, of course: Whitney tribute, Beach Boys, Adele, Kelly singing… but all in all I’m angry. Born This Way is a great work of art.

    Thanks so much for posting these! I missed it because of work so now I have my daily dose! I loved Adele’s performance. she deserves all of those awards.

  • David

    2011=the year of Adele. She’s truly phenomenal, I’m so glad I was first in line to buy this album when it came out! Felt bad for Gaga too but I mean she’s still great and shining everywhere so I’m sure she’s okay.

  • Sebastian

    Am I completely wrong or is this not Katy Perry herself opening the performance? Because how would she have been able to get up on that platform so fast and meanwhile crimp her hair and change her outfit. 😀

  • RRM

    Adele is the best, I like Gaga too but Adele was a bit better….I must say not a fan of T Swift but this is one of her best singing…she’s actually singing on tune

  • Sean

    Best performance in Katy’s career. There was a fire in her. I love it.

    Adele’s performance was on point. A major hit.

    Nicki Minaj needs to sit down and rethink what she’s doing career-wise. The performance was a mess and the song is just foul.
