Foo Fighters, Skrillex, Adele Win Multiple Trophies at Grammys

Who said rock was dead? Don’t say that to the Foo Fighters. They took home four gongs at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards last night (February 12). Other big winners at the ceremony included dubstep poster boy Skrillex and the girl that everyone loves to cheer for, Adele. However, there were a few low points in last night’s show, including Foos frontman Dave Grohl being cut off during an acceptance speech.

Foo Fighters picked up Grammys in Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance for “Walk”, Best Rock Album for Wasting Light, Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for “White Limo” and Best Long Form Music Video for their documentary Foo Fighters: Back and Forth. The only gripe I have about their wins is that Mastodon should have won in the metal category.

Dave Grohl was speaking out against Auto-Tune and overproduced music when the band was accepting an award. Grohl told the audience that the products of artists’ craft should come from their heart and mind. The musician was cut off by an LMFAO track and a Ryan Seacrest introduction. Watch the injustice below.

Electronic music king and Korn collaborator Skrillex nabbed three Grammys, including Best Dance Recording for Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites, which also claimed Best Dance/Electronica Album, and Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical for “Benny Benassi’s ‘Cinema (Skrillex Remix)”.

Adele won a total of six Grammys for her breakthrough album, 21. The British songstress was given Album of the Year and her hit “Rolling In The Deep” took home Song and Record of the Year.

There was also a touching tribute to Whitney Houston by Jennifer Hudson, who sang a emotional rendition of “I Will Always Love You”. Houston shockingly died Saturday night.
