As we thought, six-time Grammy nominee Adele is now a six-time Grammy winner, sweeping Album, Record and Song of the Year, as well as Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Short Form Video and Best Pop Solo Performance at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 12). The singer netted trophies for her record-smashing album 21 and hit singles “Rolling In The Deep” and “Someone Like You”. Jump below to see the full list of winners.

Kanye West, the most nominated act of the night, picked up trophies for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “All of the Lights”, and Best Rap Performance (with Jay-Z) for “Otis”, and Best Rap Album for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Foo Fighters won their first Grammy ever — and then four more — for their album-recorded-in-a-garage <em>Wasting Light</em>.

EDM producer Skrillex surprised many by picking up three Grammy wins, including Best Dance Recording and Best Dance/Electronica album, while Taylor Swift surprised few taking home Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for her ode to comeuppance, “Mean.”
