Adele beat Bey to win Album, Record and Song of the Year
The British singer won Album of the Year and Record of the Year for ’25’ and ‘Hello’ respectively. She also beat Beyoncé to win Song of the Year earlier in the evening.
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”.
Taking to the stage again to pick up Album of the Year, Adele continued: “I can’t possibly accept this award… The ‘Lemonade’ album was just so monumental, Beyoncé. It was so monumental and well thought-out and beautiful and soul-bearing… we appreciate that. All of us artists here adore you. You are our light”.
Earlier in the evening, Adele kicked things off with a performance of ‘Hello’. She later had to restart a George Michael tribute, saying: “I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up for him”.
Beyonce delivered a show-stopping performance before winning Best Urban Contemporary Album.
Lady Gaga and Metallica performed together while Busta Rhymes made headlines for referring to Donald Trump as ‘President Agent Orange’ during A Tribe Called Quest’s performance.
