Definitely a night of highs (Fab red carpet trends; Adele, all smiles as she scooped up 6 awards), lows (the recent death of musical icon, Whitney Houston hung over the entire affair) and just plain creepy (I mean WTH was Nicki Minaj’s performance all about, still shudder when i think about it) , the 2012 Grammys was no doubt an unforgettable one. The 54th Grammy Awards took place at The  Staples Center on February 12, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.
