Were George Michael and Adele friends, or did the "Hello" singer simply perform the tribute because she admires the artist?
Becoming the biggest victor of the evening in 2012 for her album 21, the star was once again the biggest victor of the night that the 59th Grammy Awards. She gave a shout out to Frank Ocean in one of her tweets, thus suggesting that she also meant to start boycotting the Grammys.
Beyonce has won 20 Grammys over her career but, to her fans' dismay, she has consistently lost out in the top categories of Album of the Year and Record of the Year, which recognizes the top overall song.
Nearly instantly, the world decided Adele had deliberately broken her award in order to share with Beyonce. She said that, "All us artists here adore you". Tonight winning this feels full circle and like a bit of me has come back to myself, but I can't possibly accept this award.
Whether she takes home the record, song and album of the year categories, mom-to-be Beyoncé is guaranteed a blockbuster night. Most of Adele's acceptance speeches consists of praises and adoration for Beyonce.
Beyonce, 35, had gone into Sunday's awards show with a leading nine nominations for her powerful Lemonade album about race, feminism, and betrayal.
Adding: '... This album, for me, the Lemonade album, was just so monumental'.
Portnow also pointed out that Chance the Rapper won Best New Artist, 18 years after the prize was given to Lauryn Hill, the last black singer to get the award. "You are our light", Adele said. "And you make them stand up for themselves". She later apologised, saying "I am sorry for swearing and I am sorry for starting again, I can't mess this up for him [.] I am sorry, I can't".
The isolated vocals are exactly how you'd expect them to sound - wonderful! On the other hand, even Beyonce bagged a lot of accolades starting from Best Contemporary Pop Album (Lemonade) and Best Video (Formation). "I always have and I always will". "He's really up set about the Queen B not getting her album of the year trophy", Punch tweeted.
