Adele practically owned the night, Rihanna gave a kick-butt performance and other amazing Grammy moments!
The Grammys on Feb. 12 opened by honoring Whitney Houston in a prayer led by LL Cool J. Adele literally gave everyone in world goosebumps — and blew up Twitter — with her amazing performance singing “Rolling in the Deep.” And Rihanna and Chris Brown both had outstanding performances three years after their violent incident.
