Adele Thanks Beyonce In Her Record, Album Of The Year Speeches

Adele Thanks Beyonce In Her Record, Album Of The Year Speeches

"I always have and I always will", she said.

"I really do apologize for swearing", she said.

The nominees for Album of the Year, in addition to 25 and Lemonade, were Justin Bieber's Purpose, Drake's Views and Sturgill Simpson's A Sailor's Guide to Earth.

Apparently, Adele is not alone in feeling that way.

"With all respect to our sister Beyonce, Beyonce is very attractive to look at and it's more like modelling kind of music - music to model a dress - she's not a singer, singer, with all respect to her".

Accepting her award, Adele gave a moving speech that shouted out Beyonce; she even jokingly asked Bey if she could be her "mommy" too.

Maybe the Grammys should take a cue from Adele, because something tells me Beyonce´ won't be in their lives for another show. Now the question looms: Will Beyoncé boycott the Grammys going forward?

Gale added, "The difference now, there is social media".

Later in the evening, Adele acknowledged the performance while taking home the award for Song of the Year. "What the fuck does she have to do to win album of the year?".

And Maren Morris won the best country song performance for "My Church".

Other winners include Natalie Cole, Herbie Hancock, Whitney Houston, Quincy Jones and, in 2014, Pharrell Williams in collaboration with Daft Punk.

Bowie, who died from cancer in January 2016 at 69, won posthumous awards for best alternative music album, best rock performance and best engineered non-classical album for his last release Blackstar. "We sit here tonight no matter our race or where we were born or color or race, using this art remember forever we can survive by sticking together". "And the reason I felt the need to say something is because my album of the year is Lemonade".

"1989 getting album of the year over To Pimp A Butterfly".

Fighting back tears, he added of the beloved star: 'His songs were awesome and he was one of the most wonderful people I've met in my life'.

It started with his hit "Fastlove", the song she performed during the Grammys. The pre-telecast is where the winners of the lesser known awards will be handed out, as to save time for the performances and tributes that will happen throughout the actual airing of the show.
