Adele Brings Queen Bey To Tears After Making History At The Grammys 2017
British superstar Adele totally owned the Grammys this year, taking home some of the biggest gongs of the night for ‘Song of the Year’, ‘Record of the Year’ and Album of the Year’.
But the modest, down-to-earth singer didn’t take all the glory for herself as she was quick to thank her idol Beyoncé for being such an inspiration.
Adele beat Queen Bey to the top in some of the most competitive categories of the night, yet chose to dedicate her acceptance speeches to the ‘Love on Top’ singer and even reduced her to tears with her kind words.
Standing in front of the A-list crowd on Sunday, February 12, Adele made sure to give Beyoncé several heartfelt shoutouts during the night.
When winning ‘Song of the Year’ for ‘Hello’, Adele turned to the pregnant pop star and mouthed ‘I love you, I love you’ across the aisle as she accepted the award.
It was clear just how much the Tottenham-born musician wanted to devote her wins to Beyoncé, telling her during her speech for ‘Record of the Year’:
My dream and my idol is Queen B, and I adore you. You move my soul every single day. And you have done for nearly 17 years. I adore you.
And it was when she won ‘Album of the Year’ for the notorious 25 that it all got completely overwhelming for Adele. Reducing Queen Bey to tears, she said,
I’m very humbled and very grateful and gracious, but my life is Beyonce… the Lemonade album, Beyonce, was so monumental and so well thought out. And so beautiful and soul bearing and we all got to see another side of you that you don’t always let us see… all us artists adore you. You are our light. And the way that you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering, and you make them stand up for themselves. And I love you. I always have.
The 28-year old singer made history in the Staples Center, L.A last night for being the only ever artist to take home Grammys for the same Song, Album and Record of the Year twice.
During the night, the ‘Hello’ star took to the stage with a moving rendition of George Michael’s ‘Fast Love’ in honour of the 53-year old who sadly died on Christmas Day last year.
Beyoncé also made a highly anticipated return to the stage with live performances of ‘Love Drought’ and ‘Sandcastles’ from her album Lemonade, while showing off her growing baby bump for the first time since announcing she’s expecting twins.
