RECAP: The 54th Grammy Awards Winners List

share on:

For those that missed/didn’t get the list of winners at the just concluded 54th annual Grammy Awards which held yesterday 12th of February 2012 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles-California, inserted below is a list of the key winners of the night.

Check out the list and let us know who you think (nominated or not) should have won in what category and what your best highligh for the night was. For example a girl mentioned Nicki Minaj’s album should have won in the category of “Album of The Year” and not Adele’s 🙄
In my opinion, one of the surprising feats of the Grammy’s would be; Jay-Z and Beyonce skipping out on it to go get Pizza in Brooklyn… Hmmm! Use the Comments section to share your own views.

  1. Adele deserves all the awards she won in the Grammys.She showed that your talents and not by singing half-naked can still get you recognition and make you renown worldwide.
    Kirk Franklin is still holding his own in the Christian music world.I so love him . . .
