The 2012 Grammy Awards showed us a few things tonight. For starters, the Best New Artist category award still goes to the artist who you'd least expect to win, as Bon Iver managed to edge out Nicki Minaj, J.Cole, and even dubstep's poster child, Skrillex. It also showed us that hard work and pure talent was definitely the trend this year as Adele and Kanye West each ran away with a sackful of Grammy statues tonight.
