Grammys 2017: Adele wins 5 Awards – Beyoncè epic perfomaces – Bowie wins 5

Adele, Beyoncé and Chance the Rapper dominated the 57th annual Grammys,  David Bowie Blackstar 5 Grammys

David Bowie ’s final album, “Blackstar,” also picked up five Grammy Awards for alternative music album, rock song, rock performance, engineered nonclassical album and recording package.

Adele, the English queen of pop heartbreak and redemption, scored a perfect five for five Sunday at the 59th Grammy Awards , sweeping the top categories of album, record and song of the year in a triumphant return to the spotlight following a long, trying hiatus.

She also won points for humility and grace, restarting a tribute to George Michael that she began off-key and paying homage, in the evening’s final moments, to the artist considered her key rival for the top awards.

As she accepted the album of the year award for the blockbuster  “25,” the singer, born Adele Adkins, paid homage to Beyoncé.

“The ‘Lemonade’ album is monumental, so monumental, so well-thought-out, so beautiful and soul-baring,” Adele said as Beyoncé looked on from her seat in Staples Center and mouthed the words “Thank you.”

Adele’s hit single “Hello” also collected the song award, which recognizes songwriting, and record of the year, which factors in vocal performance and record production. In addition, she won the awards for pop vocal album and solo performance.

Beyonce, who received the most nominations this year, won two of her nine categories; “Lemonade” won for urban contemporary album and “Formation” won the music video award.

Last night saw David Bowie posthumously win five Grammy Awards, as his son shared an emotional tribute.

The late Thin White Duke was honoured with Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, Best Recording Package and Best Alternative Album for ‘Blackstar’ and Best Rock Performance for the album’s title track. Bizarrely, these were Bowie’s first ever true ‘musical’ Grammy wins – having previously won just Best Video in 1985 and the Lifetime Achievement Awards in 2006.

To celebrate his father’s success, his son and acclaimed film director Duncan Jones Tweeted a message in tribute – sharing a photo of the pair together with the caption ‘So proud of you dad! Would hold you up forever’.
