Adele broke her award in half to share with Beyonce after picking up the coveted Album of the Year prize at the the 59th Annual Grammy Awards because she didn’t feel she deserved it.
The Hello singer – who, along with the late David Bowie, was Sunday night’s biggest winner after picking up five accolades – was stunned to accept the gong for her record 25 as she expected Beyonce to take it home for her visual LP Lemonade, so damaged the trophy deliberately in order to share the honour with her idol.
There was not a dry eye in the house as the 28-year-old singer accepted the most coveted gong of the night.
It was there where Adele dedicated her big win to the 35-year-old singer as she praised the pregnant star for the ‘monumental’ Lemonade album.
Adele said: ‘I can’t possibly accept this award… and I’m very grateful but the artist of my life is Beyonce’
