The 2017 Grammys winners have been announced, with Adele winning big on the night.
The 59th annual Grammy Awards took place on Sunday night (February 12) and were hosted by James Corden.
Chance the Rapper picked up the first televised award for Best New Artist. “I claim this victory in the name of the lord. I thank God for my mother and my father who have supported me since I was young… and for all of Chicago,” Chance said while accepting the award.
Chance later won Best Rap Album. During his speech, he said: “I didn’t think we’d win this one, so I don’t have cool things to say this time”.
Twenty One Pilots won Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for ‘Stressed Out’. The band accepted the award in their underwear.
David Bowie‘s ‘Blackstar’ won Best Rock Song. Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ won Best Urban Contemporary Album. Watch her acceptance speech below.
Adele won Best Song for ‘Hello’. During her acceptance speech, she apologised for swearing during her George Michael tribute and thanked co-writer Greg Kurstin. She also won Record of the Year for the same song. During her speech, she said that she loved her manager like she doesn’t love her dad. She also told Beyonce she wants her to be her “mummy”.
Picking the big prize on the night, Album of the Year, Adele said that she couldn’t accept the award, instead arguing why Beyonce’s ‘Lemonade’ should have won.
The pre-televised awards were announced earlier in the evening, with David Bowie awarded with four posthumous Grammys (Best Alternative Music Album, Best Rock Performance, Best Engineered Album Non-Classical, Best Recording Package), while Adele picked up two more (Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Pop Solo Performance).
Elsewhere, Drake won two non-televised awards: Best Rap Song and Best Rap/Sung Performance, both for ‘Hotline Bling’. Chance the Rapper‘s ‘No Problem’ picked up Best Rap Performance and Solange‘s ‘Cranes in the Sky’ was awarded Best R&B Performance.
