Sunday Night Wrapup: Dance with Somebody

by Kaitlyn Morio

Between the Republican presidential campaign trail, the Grammy Awards and Georgetown basketball wins, it’s been quite the weekend. But if you’ve too been busy listening to Whitney Houston’s Greatest Hits on repeat to catch up on the rest of the news, Sunday Night Wrapup is here to remind you what happened this weekend.
  • Republican front-runner Mitt Romney won the Maine caucus on Saturday with 39 percent of the vote ahead of Ron Paul, who finished second with 36 percent.
  • R&B icon Whitney Houston died unexpectedly on Saturday afternoon at the age of 48. The cause of death has not yet been released, and it may be six to eight weeks before the results of toxicology reports are available. Houston’s only child, Bobbi Kristina Brown, was rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Sunday morning to be treated for anxiety following her mother’s death.
  • After a disappointing loss to Syracuse on Wednesday night in overtime, the Hoyas successfully rebounded and defeated St. John’s this Sunday at the Verizon Center in a 71-61 victory.
  • Although the 54th Grammy Awards haven’t ended yet, there have already been some big wins tonight. Adele’s 21 won Best Pop Vocal Album, Taylor Swift’s “Mean” won Best Country Song, the Foo Fighter’s “Wasting Light” won Best Rock Album, and Skrillex’s Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites won for Best Dance/Electronica Album. Check out the winners as they are announced here.
