Adele won big at the Grammys as she won every award she was nominated for!
The 59th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony was held on February 12, 2017 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. James Corden hosted the ceremony but The 2017 Grammys will always be remembered as Adele’s night. Beyoncé had nine nominations and took home two trophies.
When Adele’s 25 won as the winner of Album of the Year at the 2017 Grammys, she was stunned. Adele swept Grammy for all three categories she was nominated for, alongside Beyoncé but for this one, she wasn’t ready! “I can’t possibly accept this award,” Adele said. “I’m very humbled and very grateful and gracious, but my life is Beyoncé.”
Chance The Rapper made history by winning three awards, Twenty One Pilots accepted their first ever Grammy in underwear and Rihanna and Kanye West went home empty handed.
