Adele trumps Beyonce to win five Grammy Awards

So Adele trumped Beyonce, then declared her love for her. Beyonce and her unborn twins performed then picked up an award of their own.

So Adele trumped Beyonce, then declared her love for her. Beyonce and her unborn twins performed then picked up an award of their own.

Chance the Rapper swept the board in the rap stakes and David Bowie won five post-humous awards.

Plus Adele smashed a George Michael cover (at the second attempt), Bruno Mars did a might fine Prince impersonation and MetalliGa were born.

Scroll down to re-live all that and more from an epic night in LA. We’re both off to see if we can still sneak into the after-party.

Adele became the first person ever to win the Grammys double treble; that is scooping the song, record and album of the year hat-trick twice…but instead of basking in the glory the tearful London threw the spotlight straight back on “the artist of my life.”

Some are suggesting that this was the moment that Adele ‘Kanyed’ herself, referring to Mr West storming the stage two years ago after Beyonce was beaten to the best album title by Beck’s Morning Phase.

Adele had not long been sat down, but was called back up to pick up the Album of the Year award which she says she “cannot accept”…as it should go to Beyonce for her “inspiring” LP Lemonade.


Adele said: “I can’t possibly accept this award

“My artist of my life is Beyonce and this album for me, this Lemonade album, was so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul baring … and all us artists here [bleep] adore you

“You are our light. The way you make me and my friends feel. The way you make my black friends feel is empowering. You make them stand up for themselves.

“And I love you. I always have and I always will.”
