Adele wins big at Grammys, paying tribute to Beyonce and the late George Michael

Adele won Record of the Year with "Hello" and Album of the Year with "25" at the Grammy Awards last night (February 12) in Los Angeles.

The British superstar dedicated her two big Grammy wins to fellow female superstar Beyoncé, saying that she should have won them instead. Accepting the Record of the Year award, the "Hello" hitmaker said:

“My dream and my idol is Queen Bey, and I adore you and you move my soul every single day and you have done for nearly 17 years, and I adore you and want you to be my mummy”.

Taking to the stage again to pick up the Album of the Year, Adele then said: 

“I can’t possibly accept this award… The "Lemonade" album was just so monumental, Beyoncé. It was so monumental and well thought-out and beautiful and soul-bearing… we appreciate that. All of us artists here adore you. You are our light”.

The singer-songwriter also paid tribute to the late George Michael by performing his hit song, "Fast Love".
