In case you didn’t catch the 2017 Grammys last night, here is a brief recap:
Beyonce made her debut appearance since announcing to the world that she is pregnant with twins and, like the Queen B she is, did it dressed like a modern African American virgin Mary/Egyptian goddess in a sheer, flowy sparkly gold dress complete with headress and veil. She performed a medley of songs from her Lemonade album, beginning with a video package with the theme of female empowerment. Beyonce took home 2 Grammys—one for Best Urban Contemporary Album and one for Best Music Video.
The biggest winner of the night (aside from the late David Bowie), was Adele, who took home 5 Grammys, including one for the coveted Album of the Year, which she graciously broke into to pieces to share with Beyonce.
“I can’t possibly accept this award and I’m very humbled and I’m very grateful but the artist of my life is Beyonce. This album to me, the Lemonade album was just so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul baring. The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is so empowering. I love you. I always have and I always will,” the singer tearfully said.
Adele’s touching acceptance speech moved Beyonce to tears as she watched from the crowd with husband Jay-Z.
Adele went on to perform a tribute to George Michael, which, due to a technical difficulty she asked to restart her rendition of Fast Love. Then she accidentally sang the uncensored version of the line ‘all this bullshit conversation,’ which she apologized for profusely.
Bruno Mars performed an incredible tribute to Prince, singing “Let’s Go Crazy.”
There was also a Bee Gees tribute performed by Demi Lovato, Tori Kelly, Little Big Town and Andra Day. Remaining member Barry Gibb watched from audience. John Legend and Cynthia Enrivo did the In Memoriam segment. Newly blonde Katie Perry performed and was joined by Skip Marley at the end of her performance. And Lady Gaga joined Metallica for a performance of their single “Moth to the Flame,” which also had it’s technical difficulties as James Hetfield’s mic was not on.
As expected, Justin Bieber, Drake, and Kanye West all skipped the event.
