Adele wins top honors at Grammys 2017

Adele wins top honors at Grammys 2017The 59th annual Grammy Awards was nothing short of entertaining as music’s biggest stars flew in to attend the star-studded event in Los Angeles.

The Late Late Show host James Corden took the stage to host the evening, which welcomed several action-packed performances.

Adele opened the show with her hit single “Hello” and also gave a moving tribute to George Michael, which broke the internet.

Adele was delivering a touching tribute to the late singer with her rendition of his 1996 song “Fastlove,” but stopped the music halfway to restart.

“I’m sorry for swearing and sorry for starting again, can we please start it again? I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up for him.” That was a brave move, proving that mistakes happen even to the best of us.

Adele won the evening’s top five awards, including Song of the Year, Record of the Year and the hotly contested Album of the Year. Beating Beyoncé in this category was unbelievable, even for Adele.

According to Billboard, she told reporters backstage, “I felt like it was her time to win. What the f–k does she have to do to win album of the year? That’s how I feel.”Beyoncé's Grammys 2017 performance

Speaking of Beyoncé, the “Lemonade” singer gave an action-packed pregnant performance that left everyone stunned. Dressed in a majestic goddess-like gold ensemble, she performed her hit songs “Sandcastles” and “Love Drought.” She took home the trophy for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Bruno Mars gave a stellar tribute to Prince as he sang his rendition of “Let’s Go Crazy.” Katy Perry took the stage to perform her record-breaking “Chained to the Rhythm.” Let’s just say that the Grammys proved to be another year of internet-breaking performances and wins.
