For the full list go to 52nd Grammy Award Winners

My Opinion of the awards:

All of the awards were fair enough, but i have to disagree with the Best Rock Album. Green Day is a good band and all but there is no way they can win the award having the classic/legendary AC/DC competing with them with their new album "Black Ice" (FYI, AC/DC are currently on their tour "Black Ice").

Taylor and Beyoncé really deserve all the awards, they "dominated" 2009....

Comedy awards were useless in my opinion... but whatever...
