Another great award show is in the books as viewers remember the greatest moments of the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.
Adele received the top honors of the night, but the night also belonged to the lovely Beyoncé.
Adele received five awards last night that included album of the year for “25” and Song and Record of the year for “Hello”. Beyoncé won two of her nominations for Best Music Video for “Formation” and the Best Urban Contemporary album for “Lemonade”.
During Adele’s acceptance speech for Album of the year, she gave praise and honor to her fellow nominee Beyoncé by acknowledging that Beyoncé deserved the award more. Through a tearful moment in the speech, Adele said, “The artist of my life is Beyoncé, and this album to me, the ‘Lemonade’ album, was just so monumental.” Beyoncé responded by mouthing from the audience, “I love you.”
Both of the dynamic stars also, graced the stage providing the audience and viewers with outstanding performances.
It was only a week ago when Beyoncé, broke the internet with her announcement of twins, however, her powerhouse voice performed a medley of “Love Drought” and Sandcastles”, celebrating women and motherhood throughout her performance, proved that no matter what her physical maybe, she is still and will always be the Queen Bey.
Beyoncé wasn’t the only one who had a great set, but Adele did as well. She opened the Grammy’s with her song “Hello”. Adele would again grace the stage to honor the late George Michael, who died on Christmas Day. She performed a slow rendition of “Fastlove”.
Adele only made it through a few verses and then stopped. She then stated to the audience, “I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up for him.”
However, she found the strength she needed and made it through the song with a standing ovation response from the audience.
The Grammy’s wasn’t just a night for Beyoncé and Adele but for Chance the Rapper as well who made Grammy history by being the first artist with a streaming-only album to win a Grammy. Chance won the first Grammy award of the night for Best New Artist and Best Rap Album.
