Wow. Adele has got it goin' ON! At least that was my reaction after watching the 23-year-old sing her Song of the Year "Rolling in the Deep" at last night's 54th Grammy Awards. After a lengthy hiatus because of vocal cord microsurgery, the world watched in amazement as the singer took home all six Grammys she was nominated for, including Album of the Year for 21 and Record of the Year for "Rolling in the Deep."
You know what I say? Power to her. There's no arguing that a big part of last night's show was paying tribute to Whitney Houston. However, last night was Adele's night. My favorite part? With Adele, everything you see is what you get, and we love her anyway. She's a woman who swears like a sailor, can't stop writing about uber depressing episodes of heartbreak, and sings like an angel. If you ask me, Adele is one of the most real artists in music today, and THAT'S why her 2012 Grammy performance was the best of the night.
Watch it, here:
It seems like absolutely not a thing has changed with Adele's voice, and she's genuinely beside herself to be singing in front of such an outstanding audience of talent. Man, do they love it -- too! Talk about a standing ovation!

Aside from being one real chick, Adele shows the world that you really don't need all the crazy bells and whistles a la Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry's performances from last night to be a showstopper. All a good artist needs is pipes. Well that, and a great record. Seems to me that, contrary to her hit song, Adele's finally realizing she doesn't need a man to really have it all.
What did you think of Adele's performance? What was your favorite thing about last night's Grammy Awards?
