59th grammys


Adele was the big winner at the 59th Grammy Awards on February 12, taking home five trophies.

Amongst her haul were three of the “big four” awards: Song of the year, record of the year and album of the year.

The last time someone achieved that was in 2012. And it was Adele.

The CBS network broadcast the show live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Adele said she couldn’t accept the award for best album because Beyonce’s Lemonade had more fizz.

The British singer also declared her undying love for Beyonce: “I adore you and I want you to be my mummy,” she joked, as she gestured at the heavily-pregnant star.

Beyonce put on a biblical performance of Love Drought and Sandcastles from her record, which won best urban contemporary album.

Adele brought her tribute to George Michael to a juddering halt after veering wildly off key – but made it up to the star on take two.

Chance the Rapper beat Kanye West and Drake to best rap album. He then took the LA crowd to church with the help of a gospel choir.

David Bowie received five posthumous awards including best alternative album for his final LP, Blackstar.
