2012 Grammy Awards: Musicians And Stars Turn Out For Award Show Overshadowed By Whitney Houston's Passing

The 54th Grammy Awards are being broadcast by CBS from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Kanye West led the field at the 2012 Grammys with seven nominations, though he was not nominated for Best Album. Adele was nominated for six awards, including Best Album, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance.
