Dave Grohl – 2012 Grammys
The Foo Fighters were the stars of the Grammys in 2012. Not only did the band secure five awards, but Dave Grohl’s powerful acceptance speech for Best Rock Album also earned him a standing ovation. He told the audience, "To me this award means a lot because it shows that the human element of music is what's important. Singing into a microphone and learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft — that's the most important thing for people to do ... It's not about being perfect, it's not about sounding absolutely correct, it's not about what goes on in a computer. It's about what goes on in here [your heart] and what goes on in here [your head]."
