  • lola

    I still dont understand how they gave Taylor Swift Grammy’s again -.-
    Adele was amazing with her performance as usual and certainly deserved all of those awards! Also big props to Jennifer Hudson who did amazing with the tribute to those who aren’t with us anymore :( class act!

  • CJ


  • Lulu

    Very happy for the truely talented artist !!! 6 for 6 plus 2 from last year.

  • Sybil Germanotta

    i dont understand, wheres gagas grammy??? she didnt win anything?? NOO!! gaga shuda won somthing:((

  • Mar

    Beautiful Adele! She’s a real talent. I love her!!

  • adri

    Queen Adele would like to thank everybody for coming to her award show tonight…

  • stella

    @Sybil Germanotta:

    Im a Gaga fan- I enjoy her songs, but I don’t think ‘Born this way’ deserved any Grammys… The harsh truth is that The Fame Monster was like 10000000 times better and stronger than Born this way – And people know this because Gaga released Born this way so soon that it kind of just blended in with the other songs and it wasnt memorable. She should have kept a good break in between making those albums because Fame monster had so many freaking songs that kind of made her on top of her game- Born this way literally kicked her down because people felt like she was being pushed down their throats.

    But then again I agree with @lola who mentioned Taylor Swift- that girl is the last one to deserve a Grammy.. seriously her love sick puppy dog songs are making me wanna go and burn my ears off -.-

    Anywhoo the show was great! Adele deserved all of the recognition and Im so happy that she won because she really is someone down to earth and surely appreciates her fans :) Oddly enough I was also glad that Chris Brown won.. I know people have been whining about it, but I feel like if Rihanna and Chris have moved on with what happened other people should too. Fame is a good album, too bad people won’t even give him a chance. And Im not defending anything that he did- just saying he makes good music!

    Also yay for foo fighters and Bon iver!!!!

  • Paula

    @:): Obsessed much? Funny lady haha would be your very FIRST thought. lol

  • Lisa

  • Sarah.

    I’m happy for Adele! She definitely deserves it! Finally someone who can really sing who wins the grammy’s. Finally. I absolutely love her live performances, not many can sing live the way she does.

  • moh123

    Glad for Adele and sad for Coldplay

  • Wire

    I love this song but wished she would have sang set fire to the rain instead.

  • Jane


    I am so pleased that Chris Brown won his first Grammy! I absolutely love F.A.M.E.! I don’t understand ppl being upset when Sir Paul McCartney beat wife Heather Mills but her sang and won an award! Last year serial wife beater Eminem (beat wife Kim Mathers fro years) but took both the stage with Rihanna and took home a Grammy. Seem like some double stanards going on to me!

  • cassie

    Bon Iver!! Yay! Love them!

  • Jane

    Congrats to Chris Brown, Bon Iver, Adele, Corrine Baily Ray, & Kanye West! R.I.P. Whitney Houston, Amy Winehouse, and Etta James!

    Bon Iver is one guy, not a band.

  • speaktruth

    Jared, you have to mention Bon Iver more now that they’re Grammy nominated. You would have mentioned Nicki Minaj had she won. What gives? With that said, I’m sooooo happy Bon Iver WON!!!! Wooo!!

  • Raider One

    So where are the Jazz and Classical Grammy winners? Don’t they count? You bet they do, and it’s high time to get them on the Grammy TV show!

  • cassie

    Actually, Bon Iver is a band. Guy’s name is Justin Vernon.

  • ann

    oooh coldplay should have won at very least an award ! they did a very great job with mx :( , Adele deserved her awards , even if in my opinion the winner should’ve been coldplay . We loove you guys !
    And taylor who ? I mean her songs are soooo cheesy , :(

  • Yessssssssssss

    So RIhanna only Wins Grammys when she is Featured on Someone else’s Album???? Always in the same Category Rap Collaboration!
    She really only has 2 Grammy’s for Only Girl and Umbrella!
    Congrats Chris!

  • eric

    Wow, apparently only 4 people win awards any more… I like Foo Fighters, but noone could think of anyone else to give a rock award to? There should be a limit of three awards per person..Jon Stevens, Chickenfoot, Whitesnake all came out with great albums and only Foo Fighters could win? Are they the only band someone could think of??? Same with Adele.. How lazy the Grammys have become… What a waste

  • Samantha

    So happy for Adele, Foo Fighters and Bon Iver. Can’t say the same for Chris Brown.

  • henok kiros
