Grammy Performers 2012: Comeback Kings Steal The Show

Alongside the seemingly endless parade of awards given out at the Grammy Awards, the highlights of the evening of course come thanks to the live performers - many of whom this year were making comebacks. Top of that pile of course was British singing sensation Adele who performed her massive hit 'Rolling In The Deep' to a subsequent standing ovation; it capped a phenomenal evening for the singer who went home with six awards including all the main ones - 'Best Album,' 'Best Record' and 'Best Song.'
Elsewhere though Chris Brown was also on form - despite the debate about whether he should've been there at all, there was no denying that the 22 year-old impressed with new tune 'Turn Up The Music' and 'Beautiful People' from his Best R&B winning album 'F.A.M.E.' More heart warming was the appearance of the founding members of seminal 60s pop group The Beach Boys, more than 20 years after they last shared a stage together. Performing classic hit 'Good Vibrations,' they went down well with the audience and afterwards Brian Wilson commented "With all the guys together we were supporting each other. It was a different experience, and it was a thrill for me, just being on stage together gives us a chance to express ourselves vocally and instrumentally."
They were just a three of a slew of acts who performed including Rihanna, the Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney and Katy Perry, the latter putting recent personal issues behind her to impress.
