Adele swept top honors at the 59th Grammy Award, on a night she shared with Beyonce. Adele took home a total of 5 awards, which included a Grammy for the best album of the year, '25'. Beyonce walked away with two Grammy's for best music video 'Formation' and best urban temporary record for 'Lemonade.' The two artists also gave electrifying performances.

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.
David Bowie won 5 Grammy awards posthumously for his last album 'Blackstar.'

Rapper Chance won the first Grammy of the night for best new artist. The rapper made history as the first artist to win a Grammy for streaming the only album.
