- Best Album of the Year: Babel, Mumford & Sons
- Best Pop Solo Performance: Set Fire to the Rain [live], Adele
- Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album: Kisses on the Bottom, Paul McCartney
The 55th Grammy Awards ceremony took place last night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Adele, beloved in Britain and across the world, hails from Tottenham, north London, and is a vocalist/songwriter/instrumentalist. She's now multi-award winning, having snagged various Grammys (9) and Brit Awards....and we especially loved her brilliant singing of Skyfall for last year's James Bond movie of the same name. Below, she sings her winning song Set Fire to the Rain at the Royal Albert Hall.
Paul McCartney has now won 15 Grammys, but the win last night for Kisses on the Bottom (Traditional Pop Vocal Album) was his first win for a solo album in that category. Sir Paul has won so many awards, it's interesting to note that a category was left in which he could still achieve a "first win"! Kisses on the Bottom is an album of traditional pop and jazz, consisting of covers and two McCartney originals; it was released on the Starbucks label Hear Music. Below, he sings an old standard from the album, I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter.
