Grammy awards 2017 – list of winners

The 59th Annual Grammy Awards took place Sunday night and was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, hosted by James Corden.

Adele won no fewer than five Grammys on a record-breaking night for the Hello hitmaker, but said she was “devastated” after fluffing her musical tribute to the late George Michael.

The 28-year-old singer took home Album Of The Year for 25 and Record Of The Year for Hello, beating her “idol” Beyonce to the three top awards.

A tearful Adele dedicated her album award to Beyonce, who missed out with her latest offering, Lemonade.

“I can’t possibly accept this award,” Adele said, accepting the award.

“I’m very humble and I’m grateful and gracious but my artist of my life is Beyonce and the Lemonade album was just so monumental – Beyonce, it was so monumental – and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-baring.

“All us artists here, we f****** adore you.

“The way you make me and my friends feel. The way you make my black friends feel is empowering. You make them stand up for themselves and I love you and I always have.”

She added: “My idol is Queen Bey and I adore you.”

Adele also won best pop vocal album for 25 and best pop solo performance for Hello, taking her total number of Grammy wins to 15.

There was more British success as David Bowie won four posthumous Grammys following his death from cancer last year.

Bowie, who died in January 2016 aged 69, was awarded Best Alternative Music Album, Best Rock Performance and Best Engineered Non-Classical Album for his last release, Blackstar.
