2012 Grammy Awards
February 9, 2012 by staff
2012 Grammy Awards, Adele, with six nominations, is expected to be the big winner at the Grammy Awards. She is also scheduled to sing on the broadcast — her first public performance since throat surgery last fall. Every time someone mentions the name Adele at Sunday night’s Grammys, all viewers of legal age should take a gulp of their favorite hootch.
Those who play along can expect to be found passed out and drooling no later than 9. (The show begins on CBS at 8.)
After all, how can this powerhouse singer escape constant comment? She has the biggest-selling – as well as the most critically respected – music of the year, a rare enough nexus to give her a lock.
Then again, experienced tea-leaf readers in the wacky Grammy world know to beware the dreaded foregone conclusion.
Consider the gob-smacking results of last year’s competition. Any Vegas oddsmaker worth his math would have gone into that show with the smart money placed on Eminem to sweep.
After all, the rapper’s album, “Rehab,” not only was a commercial lollapalooza (if with half the sales of Adele’s “21″), it signaled his emotional rescue after years of self-destructive drug abuse.
Em’s triumphoveradversity story alone should have sewn it up for him.
So guess who ended up fumbling every one of the top categories and to the weakest competition, no less?
The featherweight Lady Antebellum seized both Song and Record of the Year for “Need You Now” – a song that sounded like nothing so much as a redo of the Starland Vocal Band’s “Afternoon Delight,” minus the smutty subtext. At the same time, the big Album prize went to the year’s ultimate dark horse: Arcade Fire for “Suburbs.”
