Adele sweeps the Grammys 2017 with five wins

Says that Beyoncé should have won 'Album of the Year'

By ELLE team  February 13th, 2017

While Beyoncé (and her pregnancy announcement) was all that anyone could talk about last week, it was Adele who stole the show at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. 

Adele’s ’25’ beat Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ for the ‘Album of the Year’ and caused the Beyhive to erupt in protest because while ‘Hello’ made us ugly cry, Beyoncé throwing shade at ‘Becky with the good hair’ was absolute gold.

Aside from this, Adele racked up ‘Record of the Year (Hello), Song of the Year (Hello), Best Pop Vocal Album (25) and Best Pop Solo Performance (Hello).

While accepting the ‘Album of the Year’ award, Adele spoke directly to Beyoncé and called her an ‘artist for life’ and an inspiration and said that it should have been her who won the award, which had Beyoncé tearfully mouth ‘I love you’ to her. You guys!


Earlier, while accepting the award for ‘Record of the Year’, Adele had expressed her desire for Beyoncé to be her mommy. Adele also acknowledged how difficult it is to be a mother and the time she had to take off, “It took an army to make me strong,” she said. 

With these five wins, Adele has a total of 15 Grammy awards (for her 18 nominations) and is the only artist to sweep album, record and song of the year twice.
