ImageAdele swept the board at last night's Grammy Awards, bagging five awards, including Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. The ceremony also marked the Londoner's first live performance since her throat operation last year. Her rendition of the hit Rolling in the Deep , the song which earned her one of the night's most prestigious awards, Song of the Year, was met by a standing ovation from the crowd.

After picking up Best Pop Solo Performance Adele said: "I can't believe I'm getting emotional already. And seeing as it's a vocal performance, I need to thank my doctors, I suppose, who brought my voice back."

Foo Fighters were the night's other big winners, picking up five gongs, including Rock Song, Rock Album and Rock Performance.

Meanwhile there were also awards for "New Artist" Bon Iver and womanpuncher Chris Brown, who was performing on the stage for the first time since he dropped out of 2009's broadcast. His attack on Rihanna the night before led to the pair's absence, an assault charge for Brown and a career low.

The night also stars pay tribute to Whitney Houston, who died suddenly on Saturday afternoon. Rapper LL Cool J led the tributes, opening the show with a prayer for Whitney. He said: "There is no way around this. We've had a death in our family. So at least, for me, the only thing that feels right is to start with a prayer for the woman that we love, for our fallen sister Whitney Houston."

While Jennifer Hudson with only the accompaniment of a piano, fought back tears as she sang I Will Always Love You,
