2012 Grammy Winners

Performing for her first time since throat surgery, Adele swept away the crowd and the awards. 6 Grammys for the record shattering 23-year old English singer including Album of the Year.
Mr. West took home 4 awards including Best Rap Album for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and Best Rap Performance with Jay-Z for “Otis.”
Bittersweet. Best New Artist included two of my favourite records of 2011 and both deserving of the honour.
Toronto’s Dine Alone Records, with 15 employees, has been signing phenomenal artists for year and it’s great to see them add two awards to their shelf, congrats to The Civil Wars.
