Last night, Sunday, February 12th, saw the 54th Grammy Awards.

Here are all the winners, in no particular order. Foo Fighters swept the rock category, as expected. Though I am disappointed Coldplay didn't win any awards, they shouldn't have been placed in the Rock category anyway...Mylo Xyloto was definitely NOT your typical rock music. Adele also had a good night. Interestingly, Bon Iver won New Artist, though they have been around since 2007...
