The 54th Annual Grammy Awards 2012: And the Grammy goes to…

Sabtu malam, 11 Februari 2012 saat para pengisi acara malam puncak penganugerahan The 54th Annual Grammy Awards melakukan rehearsal sontak menjadi malam duka bagi para pecinta musik di seluruh belahan dunia. Whitney Houston secara mengejutkan dikabarkan meninggal dunia disebuah kamar hotel. Shock? Tentunya, dan atas peristiwa ini pula lah panitia penyelenggara malam penghargaan tertinggi bagi insan musik dunia itu kemudian merombak run-down acara dan menyelipkan sebuah sesi penghormatan untuk mengenang kiprah sang diva di sepanjang hidupnya. Adalah Jennifer Hudson yang mendapatkan kehormatan memberikan tribute untuk mendiang Whitney dengan menyanyikan I Will Always Love You.

Malam penghargaan yang digelar 12 Februari 2012 waktu USA itu sendiri berlangsung meriah dan memberikan kemenangan besar untuk Adele yang menyapu bersih kemenangan 6 piala dari 6 nominasi yang ia raih yaitu Record of the Year, Song of the Year, dan Best Short Form Music Video untuk Rolling in the Deep, Album of the Year dan Best Pop Vocal Album untuk 21, serta Best Pop Solo Performance untuk Someone Like You. Foo Fighters yang juga dinominasikan di 6 kategori bersama Adele dan Bruno Mars membawa pulang 5 piala, namun naas harus dialami Bruno Mars yang pulang dengan tangan hampa tanpa satupun piala diraih. Sementara itu, Kanye West yang pada The 54th Grammy Nomination Concert 30 November lalu paling diunggulkan dengan 7 nominasi pada akhirnya pulang dengan 4 buah piala.
