All the pictures from the Grammys red carpet 2012
While Meryl Streep was climbing in to bed BAFTA in hand, Adele was just getting started on her six gong win across the Atlantic at the Grammys.
The British singer managed to match Beyonce's haul at the 2010 awards by picking up three of the prestigious music prizes for album, '21' plus three more for single, 'Rolling in the Deep'.
Even though she received a standing ovation for her first performance since throat surgery last year, the night wasn't all about Adele.
Tributes were paid to Whitney Houston who was found dead in the bath just hours before the ceremony was due to start. LL Cool J said a prayer for the late singer, while Jennifer Hudson covered 'I Will Always Love You'.
