Grammys honour Adele, Whitney

THE Foo Fighters captured five Grammys and Adele won four, including the song of the year trophy for "Rolling in the Deep," at a Grammy ceremony that had the difficult task of celebrating music's best while mourning the loss of one of their greatest, Whitney Houston.

Houston's death on the eve of the awards forced a delicate balance between the exuberance of the show's winners and performances with the loss.

Adele, who owned the year's best-selling album with "21," was triumphant in her first performance since vocal cord surgery forced the cancellation of a tour and months of vocal rest.

As the world wondered whether her voice would still soar, she answered with her performance of her hit "Rolling in the Deep," and received a sustained standing ovation from the crowd.

The song also won her one of the night's most prestigious awards, song of the year, while her "Someone Like You" won for best pop solo performance.
