Beyonce reminded her critics why she is nicknamed Queen Bey as she gave a powerful performance of 'Love Drought' and 'Sandcastles,' in a 9-minute set that was a celebration of women and motherhood. Beyonce recently announced that she is expecting twins with husband Jay-Z.
Adele, on the other hand, opened the show with her hit 'Hello.' Later she performed a slowed rendition of George Michael's 'Fastlove,' in a tribute to the singer who passed away on Christmas day. After a few verses, Adele uttered an expletive and stopped.
"I'm sorry, I can't mess this up for him," Adele said. She then powered through the song, and the crowd reacted with a standing ovation.
Her evening got better as 'Hello' won a Grammy for song and record of the year. During her acceptance speech, she professed her admiration for fellow nominee Beyonce.
