And The Grammy Goes To ...

With a chilling tribute start to Aretha Franklin by a female vocalist group consisting of Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Martina Mcbride, Yolanda Adams and Florence Welch, the 53rd Annual Grammy Award show began with an excitable performance. The Show continued to rock out with the Muse' performance of their hit, the "Resistance" and on to a flashback segment with a new generation of upcoming musicians B.o.B., Bruno Mars and Janelle Monet. The other performances didn't disappoint anyone, except for those wanting to hear the winners. The show was interrupted here and again by the announcement of categorical if that was what thousands of music celebrities and their fans gathered for at the Los Angeles Staples Center.

If you were like most of us who skipped the award announcements and just watched the performances, fear not...we've compiled the list of winners along with how we predicted each category.
