The 54th GRAMMY Awards Night is indeed "Music's Biggest Night" as the brightest music superstars were given recognition for their work, talent, and artistry. It was a night of unforgettable performances, red carpet fashion, and refined culture. It was also an evening of touching memories as everyone paid tribute to Whitney Houston's musical gifts and legacy that inspired people throughout the world.

And leading to the awards night on February 12, 2012, Grammy Live started with the red carpet arrivals at noon and a live stream of the Pre-Telecast Ceremony where GRAMMYs for nearly 70 categories were awarded.

Barely a day before the event, the organizers were quick enough to make some adjustments to the show. Some of the highlights on this year's GRAMMY stage include Adele's performance of "Rolling in the Deep" -- Adele's first time to perform after her vocal cord surgery last year. Also note-worthy is Jennifer Hudson's rendition of "I Will Always Love You", a last minute addition as a Special Grammy Tribute to honor Whitney Houston.
