British pop superstar Adele Adkins MBE had a great night at the 59th annual Grammys award.
The hello singer took home five gongs at the prestigious award ceremony that took place at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles last night.
In her acceptance speech, the 28-year-old whose win includes album of the year, for 25, Best Pop Solo Performance, thanked her long-time partner, calling him (Simon Konecki) my husband, which appears to confirm the rumour that she had secretly gone to get married in October last year.
“Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband and my son – you’re the only reason I do it,” she said.
She won song and record of the year (Hello) but she said it should have gone to her “Queen Bey,” whom she adores.
It is the third time she’s won Record of the Year. Her song, Chasing Pavements won Record of the Year in 2009 and in 2012, Rolling in the Deep won it.
Although Beyonce was nominated nine times, the Lemonde Singer won only two of the award.
Solange, Beyonce’s younger sister, won her first Grammy in the Best R&B Performance category for breakout hit Cranes In the Sky.
Adele , a north Londoner who has now won 15 Grammys also paid tribute to George Michael.
