2017 Grammy Awards: List Of Winners Including Adele’s Reaction To Beyonce’s Album Of The Year Snub

The United Kingdom reigned supreme at the 2017 Grammy Awards with two of its acts tying for the biggest winners of the night.

Adele and the late David Bowie, who died of cancer in January 2016 days after releasing his final album, each collected five Grammy Awards.

Adele won all five categories for which she was nominated for including the top three Grammy Awards which pitted her against the favorite, Beyonce.

Beyonce led with nine nominations but surprisingly won just two awards for her ‘Lemonade’ album at the 59th Grammy Awards.

Adele, however, acknowledged the formation singer during her album of the year acceptance speech saying Queen B was her idol.

”I can’t possibly accept this award and I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful but the artist of my life is Beyonce. This album to me, the Lemonade album was just so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-baring.”

”The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is so empowering. I love you. I always have and I always will.”

The 28-year-old singer went on to deliberately damage the trophy so the two stars could share the honor as Beyonce and almost half the audience shed a tear.

Grammy Awards

The Grammy Awards night was full of talking points from political statements to the emotional tributes for George Micheal and funk music legend, Prince.

Beyonce gave a stunning visual performance where she showed off her pregnancy and talked about the beauty of childbirth.

There were also performances by John Legend, Demi Lovato, Lady Gaga, Kay Perry, The Weeknd, Daft Punk and Chance The Rapper.

Chance The Rapper won best rap album despite not having a record deal. He benefitted from the Grammy’s eligibility rules change which allows streaming-only releases to be considered.

“I want to thank God for my mother and my father, who supported me since I was young, for Kirsten, for Kensli, for all of Chicago, and I want to thank God for putting amazing people in my life.”

“This is for every indie artist… shout out to DJ Drama… shout out to Soundcloud… it’s another one baby!”

The Late Late Show host James Corden hosted the ceremony replacing five-year presenter LL Cool J.

Corden hosted his viral carpool karaoke series in a cardboard card with artists like Jennifer Lopez, Tim McGraw and John Legend.

Beyonce’s young daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, stole that segment when she jumped in to sing along.
