Adele breaks Grammy in two.

‘The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is so empowering. I love you. I always have and I always will.’ – Adele

“I can’t possibly accept this award…the Lemonade album was just so monumental,Beyoncé. It was so monumental and well-though-out and beautiful and soul-bearing…we appreciate that. All of us artists here adore you. You are our light.” said Adele as she accepted her award for  Album of the year.

As she was backstage, Adele added, “I thought it was her year. What the fuck does she have to do to win Album of the Year?”

Beyoncé sheds a tear while listening to Adele’s speech.

“I remember when I was 11 years old, I was with some girlfriends, and we were practicing a song to do at an assembly. I probably suggested the Spice Girls, and they said have you heard [Destiny’s Child’s] ‘No No No’? And I was like, ‘no, no, no.’ I remember how I felt hearing her voice. I fell in love immediately with her. The way I felt when I first heard ‘No No No’ was exactly the same as when I first heard ‘Lemonade’ last year. … The other artists who mean that much to me are all dead” she recalled.

Adele scooped a total of 5 Grammys.
