The 54th annual Grammy awards was one for the books. From the beginning to the end, the stars and performances were incredible. Even while everyone was dealing with the sudden tragic passing of music legend Whitney Houston just last night, a mini tribute to her by the one and only Jennifer Hudson somehow made it all better. The anticipating performance of the return of Adele was one that shut the house down. Killing her performance and winning a total of six grammys proved to be her night, one she definitely deserved. Other great performances included Bruno Mars, Chris Brown, Coldplay with Rihanna, Paul McCartney and the comeback of The Beach Boys are just a few of many others. Nicki Minaj had an interesting performance as well to say the least. Anyway, much of the winners were well deserved. Jay-Z and Kanye, who weren’t in attendance, won a Grammy for “Otis” and Chris Brown won a Grammy for “F.A.M.E.”. Take a look a few celebs who hit the red carpet…
