Nominated in six categories, Adele won every single one, including the big three: “Song of the Year,” “Record of the Year” and “Album of the Year.”
Other notable mentions include Chris Brown, who won “Best R&B Album (F.A.M.E.),” Corrine Bailey Rae, who won “Best R&B Performance (Is This Love)” and Jay-Z and Kanye West who won “Best Rap Performance (Otis).”
This year’s show was packed with performances, most notable for me: Adele singing “Rolling in the Deep” and Jennifer Hudson’s gut wrenching performance of Whitney Houston’s classic “I Will Always Love You.”
But the performance I am sure most people will be talking about is that of hip-pop star Nicki Minaj. My gosh it was awful. As I said in another post, this performance was the biggest of Minaj’s career and would be very telling in whether or not she would be considered a legitimate artist.
Sadly, Nicki took a page out of Lady Gaga’s playbook and bought the drama,but not the substance. Her performance was a lipsynced over the top extrvaganza that did nothing but highlight her total lack of musical skills.
I was truly embarrassed for her.
As for the fashions, which is really why I watch every year, Rihanna totally owned the night. She is a chronic wig snatcher. No one who walked that red carpet tonight came even close to touching her.
