2012 Grammy Winners: R&B Categories
The nominations for the 2012 Grammy Awards were announced Nov. 30, 2011, and the winners were announced Feb. 12, 2012 live on CBS. The winners in the R&B categories included Cee-Lo Green, Melanie Fiona, Chris Brown and Corinne Bailey Rae. As a side note, this was the first Grammys ceremony since the announcement that the R&B awards were being downsized from eight to four as part of a larger elimination of a total of 31 categories.
