Master of ceremonies LL Cool J opened the 54th Grammy Awards at the Staples Center in Los Angeles last night with a tribute and prayer to Whitney Houston.
   The late singer received a standing ovation after a clip of her performing ‘I Will Always Love You’ was played at the ceremony.
   Singer Jennifer Hudson paid her tribute by soulfully singing a version of same song that had made Houston a worldwide star for the second time, in the 1990s.
   British singer–songwriter Adele, who had been nominated for six Grammys, won them all. She won awards for song and record of the year, for ‘Rolling in the Deep’, and best album, for 21.
   She is now tied with Beyoncé Knowles as the woman who has won the most Grammys in a single evening.
   Adele also triumphantly performed at the Grammys. It was her first public performance since undergoing throat surgery.
   Foo Fighters won five Grammy Awards, including best rock album for Wasting Light. Kanye West, who had led the nominations with seven, took home four Grammys.
