She didn’t seem too fussed, however, and had a good giggle with her team as she held up the two pieces.
It was an emotional evening for Adele and she couldn’t help sobbing after receiving her final award for Album of the Year, commenting that she couldn’t accept the award because she felt it should have gone to Beyonce.
Even the Lemonade singer was struggling to keep back the tears as Adele gave a heartfelt speech praising her.
“I can’t possibly accept this award,I’m very grateful and very gracious, but my artist of my life is Beyonce, and this album for me ... the Lemonade album was so monumental, well thought out and so beautiful and soul-baring. We all got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see, and we appreciate that. All us artists here f**king adore you,” she said, marking her second f-bomb of the night (after using a previous speech to apologise for her first).“You are our light. The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel, is empowering. You make them stand up for themselves, and I love you. I always have, and I always will,” she told Beyonce, who herself was fighting back tears.
