Adele appeared to doubt that she should have won over Beyonce, whose groundbreaking album "Lemonade" was also nominated: "My artist, the artist of my life is Beyonce, and the "Lemonade" album was so monumental and well thought-out and so handsome and soul baring", she said in her emotional acceptance speech.
While accepting the award for Best Album, Adele said it belonged to Beyonce for her album "Lemonade".
Of course, the reason behind the gold and diamond lemon-looking brooch remains to be seen, and it may be a little bit of forward, wishful thinking to assume Adele is paying homage to her competitor in the Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year category.
"I can't possibly accept this award", she explained, "and I'm very humbled and very grateful and gracious but my life is Beyonce". "Lemonade was so monumental, Beyoncé, and so well thought out and so handsome and soul baring and we all got to see another side to you", she said.
"All us artists adore you".
"I love you so much, I always have and always will".
After the moving acceptance speech, Adele was photographed on stage holding her trophy, now split in half.
"The Grammys were last night", Corden said at the top of his monologue, cracking, "Don't tell me what happened, I DVR'd it".
Beyoncé was nominated for a leading nine Grammy Awards for her album "Lemonade".
With one early win for her "Formation" music video, she is expected to steal the show with her first public performance later on Sunday since her surprise announcement 12 days ago that she is pregnant with twins. "You are our light".
She becomes only the second woman to win the album of the year award twice after Taylor Swift achieved the feat last year. "That's how I feel".
Speaking to reporters backstage after her victorious evening, Adele changed her tune and referred to Konecki as her "partner", according to People.com. Especially since Adele also realized the Lemonade album meant more to her black friends than it did to her.
