Lots of pressure, lots of buzz – and major delivery. Adele’s return to the stage following months of vocal rest and a serious surgery was worth the wait: 97% of you called her heartfelt rendition of “Rolling in the Deep” “amazing.”

The best new artist nominee ruffled a few feathers with her somewhat controversial getup – and 66% of you thought it was the night’s worst look. daring Jean Paul Gaultier came in second place with 17% of the vote, and Robyn’s funky white look took 12%.
Tasked with boosting the crowd while also honoring Whitney Houston, host LL Cool J started the show with a prayer in the late singer’s honor, a touching tribute that 93% of you found “perfect and poignant.”
You didn’t like Nicki’s outfit – and you didn’t want to be near it, either. A whopping 67% of you said you wouldn’t want to be stuck behind the rapper’s big red hood during the show … meaning that you would’ve rather been peering around Deadmau5’s big ears.
