While Whitney Houston’s death cast an ominous shadow over last night’s Grammys, the underlying message from friends and fellow musicians was that the best way to honor Whitney was to celebrate her life — and celebrate they did.

After Adele’s six-win sweep, a crazy, innapropriate performance by Nicki Minaj, and a too-open-hearted performance by Katy Perry, the awards ended the only way they know how to — with a whole lot of after parties. Here’s a round-up of the who, what, when, and where of last night’s late-night events.

• The official Grammy after party, located at the Los Angeles Convention Center, stirred the pot after a soulful night. The tropical Latin theme filled the party with feathers, costumes, and a slew of bikini-clad women. Kenny Loggins and DJ Michelle Pesce performed while guests posed in the photo booths and shirtless men performed the Brazilian martial art capoeira. [NPR]

• Soho House on Sunset Boulevard hosted the Vevo/Nike Post party and was one happening event; that had music spun by DJ Cassidy and guests like Eminem, Ne-Yo, and QuestLove. [LA Times]

• Over at Capitol Records, popular recording label EMI was hosting guests like Lady Antebellum, David Guetta, Paris Hilton, and many others. The carnival theme made for a good time. [SF Chronicle]

• The ever fashionable and InStyle/Warner Music Grammy Post party, hosted at the Chateau Marmont, was spilling with famous faces. Guests included Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, Bruno Mars, John Legend, Alicia Keys, and other chart-topping singers. [Celebuzz]

• After killing it on stage with Coldplay for their cool collaboration of "Princess of China," Rihanna continued the party at the House of Blues, where she performed a few more songs. The 23-year-old Bajan singer made another stop on her party train at Greystone Manor, where things probably got a bit awkward since both of her exes, Chris Brown and Drake, were in attendance. [Daily Mail]

Where was the real party, though? At Lucali, a pizzeria in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, where new parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z had a date night sans baby Blue Ivy. Though the couple skipped the awards for a quieter scene, Jay-Z won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance for “Otis,” his collaboration with Kanye West. A baby and a Grammy in one month – that's definitely a party. [Us]

Adele's ✡' scores again, beating Swift for 2012's top album

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - British singer Adele's Grammy-winning "21" scored a rare feat in 2012 as it topped U.S. album sales for a second straight year, beating out U.S. country-pop star Taylor Swift's "Red, Nielsen Soundscan said on Thursday.

It was the first time a single album had been a top-seller for two years in a row since Nielsen began tracking album sales in 1991, the organization said.

But U.S. album sales overall fell 4 percent in 2012 to 315.96 million albums, after 2011 saw a rare 3 percent bump in sales.

Adele's "21" sold 4.41 million units in the United States in 2012 to top Swift's "Red," which sold 3.11 million copies. In 2011, "21" sold 5.82 million units.

"It's a sort of a once-in-a-lifetime album," Keith Caulfield, associate director of charts at Billboard, told Reuters of "21." "Only a few of these albums come along in history."

The heartbreak record, with hits like "Rolling in the Deep" and "Someone Like You," earned Adele six Grammy Awards in early 2012, boosting the profile of the 24-year-old singer and songwriter, who records on indie label XL Recordings.

The album sold at a furious pace, reaching the 10 million albums-sold plateau in the span of two years, Caulfield noted. The last album to achieve that feat was boy band 'N Sync's "No Strings Attached," which was released in 2000.

"It's really the right combination of artistry and hit singles," Caulfield said of "21's" success.

"She really crossed over from pop to Latin to adult contemporary to dance," he added. "Young and old consumers bought it, and because of its mixture of fans, she was able to sell it as well as she did."

Adele's success came despite the drop in 2012 U.S. album sales.

"Last year (2011) was a fluke," Caulfield said. "A year gain in album sales is a mega achievement. . It's the way the market works now, people buy songs and not albums."

Indeed, digital song sales rose 5 percent in 2012 to a record high 1.336 billion downloads.

The year's best-selling albums in the United States had a particularly British flavor as Swift was the lone American in the top five. Swift records for the independently owned Nashville-based Big Machine, distributed by Universal Music Group.

British boy band One Direction's "Up All Night," released in 2011 on Sony Music Entertainment's SYCO/Columbia label, placed third with 1.62 million units sold, while their 2012 follow-up, "Take Me Home," took the fifth spot with 1.34 million units sold.

Britain's folk revivalists Mumford & Sons, on indie record label Glassnote, placed fourth with their album "Babel" selling 1.46 million units.
