The 59th Grammy’s ceremony took place last night in Los Angles. The awards bash did not disappoint, with both jaw-dropping performances and winners galore.
The most anticipated music event of the year, The Grammy’s, will go down in history for British singer Adele, who scooped up an astonishing five gongs!
The ‘Hello’ vocalist took to the stage to open the night, performing her hit song. The track won big, taking not only one award, but a trio of golden golden gramophones for ‘Record of the Year’, ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Best Solo Pop Performance’.
The Tottenham born singer was taken aback by her success, also winning another two awards for her album ‘25′ with the awards for ‘Best Album of the Year’ and ‘Best Pop Vocal Album’.
Overcome with emotion, Adele dedicated her acceptance for the award of ‘Album of the Year’ to fellow nominee, Beyonce. In true ‘Mean Girls’ style, she snapped the gramophone in half and gave half to the ‘Lemonade’ artist.
Adele’s night did not go pass without glitches, as she had to restart her performance of ‘Fast Love’ by the late George Michael due to pitching issues. However, the audience applauded her and fans also showed their support on Twitter.
However, the performance of the night went to Beyonce who dazzled in golden fashion, showcasing her baby bump for the first time in public.
After performing ‘Love Drought’ and ‘Sandcastles’ from her latest album, the soon-to-be mother of twins was awarded for her work on ‘Lemonade’, collecting the award for ‘Best Urban Contemporary Album’.
Fellow Brit James Corden, presenter of the Late Late Show stateside, was on hosting duties providing various gags throughout the night. His entrance was rehearsed, but dramatic all the same, after falling down the steps leading onto the stage.
Other performances of the night came from the likes of The Weeknd and Daft Punk, Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and Katy Perry, performing the first live rendition of her new track ‘Chained to the Rhythm’.
Of course, the night did not just belong to Adele and Beyonce, with other artists also picking up an award or two:
