Beyonce and Jay Z pay tribute to The Purple One
The evening saw Bruno Mars lead a star-studded tribute to the late, great Purple One – following a performance from Morris Day & The Time with ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ from ‘Purple Rain’ while dressed as Prince himself.

The internet then reacted as she was shown dancing along to Beyonce’s electric performance of ‘Lemonade’ and acceptance speech, before host James Corden then invited her along for some typical Carpool Karaoke.
While Beyonce won Best Urban Contemporary Album for ‘Lemonade’, she lost out on Album of the Year to Adele – who said that she wished Beyonce had won all of her awards.
Accepting the Record of the Year award, Adele said: “My dream and my idol is Queen Bey, and I adore you and you move my soul every single day and you have done for nearly 17 years, and I adore you and want you to be my mummy”.
