Adele Performs at the 2012 Grammys
Adele is back in the spotlight after recovering from vocal cord surgery and winning two Grammy Awards, including the album of the year. Adele’s performance of “Rolling in the Deep” was greeted with the largest standing ovation of the night. She’s had a hectic year, having undergone surgery to repair vocal cord damage and postponing a tour to recover. Still, her album has sold more than six million copies and has remained at No. For six weeks, her album remained at No. 1 on the Billboard Albums Chart.
Although Adele’s performance at 2012 Grammys was memorable and well-received, her night was overshadowed tragically by the death of Whitney Houston. Nevertheless, Adele won six Grammys, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. This was her first performance since October, when she had to have vocal cord surgery. She was also awarded the special prize for song and record of the years. During the press conference following the awards, she revealed that she and Simon Konecki were married.
Adele performed Rolling in the Deep, one of her most popular songs, but she seemed to be anxious before the big night. Adele has previously admitted to having suffered from performance anxiety and has not been able to perform at her best. The emotional and physical turmoil that Adele experienced after her vocal cord injury was evident in her performance at the 2012 Grammys. She also admitted that she felt like the music industry was riding on top of her vocal cords.
Adele also appeared on the red carpet and in photos during the after-party. She was photographed with her boyfriend, Simon Konecki, collaborator Paul Epworth, Lady Antebellum, and J. Cole. She was joined by a few other celebrities, including Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, and Sir Paul McCartney. The night ended with a standing ovation for Adele and six Grammy Awards.
The night’s performances were notable for their range and variety. Adele was nominated for six Grammys and won in every category. She was nominated in three categories: Album of the Year and Song of the Year. She is up against Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, and the Foo Fighters, as well as country duo the Band Perry and American rapper Jay-Z. Bon Iver and Rihanna also received nominations.
Bruno Mars and Alicia Keys were also big winners. Adele’s six Grammy win marks her second consecutive night with multiple Grammys. This was despite the fact that she underwent throat surgery in 2012 and cancelled two tours. After her win, Adele’s 21-year-old album saw the greatest increase in weekly sales. Frank Sinatra and The Monkees also announced they would record their own songs.
