The Grammy Awards 2017: Adele won our hearts and Beyonce’s too!

12th February 2017, Sunday came to be as the 59th Grammy Awards this year and as ever the amazing Adele swept the show gathering a total of 5 Grammys. The show was also speckled with stars and performances that tugged at our hearts.

One star who gathered all the shine was Queen Bey – Beyonce– who made heads turn in her scintillating red dress, showing off her baby bump carrying twins. The popstar was nominated for 9 Grammys across four genres but unfortunately lost the top two to the ‘Hello’ star. Adele took home Record of the Year (Hello), Album of the Year (25), Pop Vocal Album, Song of the Year and Solo Performance. But not before she broke her award in half just to make a point about how much Beyonce deserved it. “I can’t possibly accept this award,” she said. “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.”

While Beyonce bagged the “Lemonade” won for Urban Contemporary Album and “Formation” won the Music Video award. In accepting the urban contemporary album award, Beyoncé said, “My intention for the film and album was to create a body of work that will give a voice to our pain, our struggles, our darkness and our history, to confront issues that make us uncomfortable.Chance the Rapper, came out as a shining win by lifting the Best New Artist trophy edging out The Chainsmokers.

Hosted by the Late Night host, James Corden, The Grammys had even some power packed performances that took our breath away. From Beyonce’s ‘Sandcastles’ and ‘Love Drought’ rendition to Bruno Mars paying a tribute to Prince, it was all as dreamy as it could be. Then there were Metallica and Lady Gaga who amped up the attitude in the room. Even Adele paid tribute to George Michael and won applauds for the same. One of the highlights when A Tribe Called Quest, after dedicating their set to the late Phife Dawg, brought out Busta Rhymes and Consequence for the politically-charged “We the People” — Busta sarcastically thanking “President Agent Orange” and sending a powerful message.
