In the 59th Grammy Awards ceremony held last night it was UK singer /songwriter Adele who emerged victorious as she yet again won five awards bringing her total to 15 out of a possible 18.

Best single award

At the ceremony which took place in Los Angeles on Sunday Adele won the prize for best song for 'Hello', Best Pop Vocal Album for '25', Best Pop Solo Performance for 'Hello', Best Record for 'Hello' and Best Album of the year.

Best album award

In true Adele fashion, the singer showed amazing humility by claiming that the award should have gone to Beyonce for her album 'Lemonade'.

The singer, who won with her album '25' stated that Beyonce's work was 'just so monumental' and she could hardly believe that her rival, now expecting twins, had not taken home the trophy. In typical down to earth fashion Adele added backstage that she thought it was Beyonce's year and "what the f*** does she have to do to win Album of the Year?"

Adele's 'Mean Girls' moment

After her open praise for her idol Beyonce, Adele set Twitter on fire with a moment straight from the film 'Mean Girls' when she actually broke her award in two claiming that "All of us artists here adore you. You are our light." Beyonce looked up at the stage and mouthed "I love you" to her.

Adele's tribute to George Michael

Adele was due to sing a tribute to George Michael by singing 'Fastlove' but in a scene reminiscent of last year when she was plagued by technical difficulties in her performance of 'All I ask' the song began badly. Determined for this not to be a repeat Adele bravely stopped, saying "I can't mess this up for him" and uttering an expletive that she is now well known for.

She then completed a slowed-down version of the song and received a standing ovation.

Adele's dominance

With the five awards from this year making a total of 15 it is hard to see who will take Adele's place as the doyenne of the Grammys. She is famously down to earth and shuns the limelight, preferring instead to lead as normal a life as possible. Her talent however, shines through as she produces hit after hit dominating awards ceremonies.
