The Rolling In the Deep hitmaker said: '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.' 

Perhaps it was a bit too much excitement as Adele actually broke the Album Of The Year trophy as she happily showed off the gong in two pieces before walking off-stage. 

It was quite a night for Adele as she also took home the Song Of The Year award for Hello en route to a five award sweep at the event held inside the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

During the previous acceptance speech, the London-native once again praised Beyonce as she said: 'You move my soul every single day, and you have for 17 years. I adore you, and I want you to be my Mummy.'

Earlier in the night Beyonce got emotional as she accepted the Best Urban Contemporary Album gong at the as she stressed the importance of looking to the past in order to learn for the future. 

The singer - who is pregnant with twins - talked about the importance of showing her children images to 'reflect their beauty' while addressing the crowd.

She concluded: 'This is something I want for every child of every race, and I feel it's vital that we learn from the past and recognize our tendencies to repeat our mistakes.'

The Queen Bey made sure to come prepared as she held up a gold card while reading a written statement.

She did begin with a little bit of improv as she said 'hi baby' to her five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy as she looked on from the crowd. Before the event started she also won Best Music Video for Formation.

It was quite the night for the singer as she had the most ambitious performance of the night as she began the performance with a psychedelic introduction featuring holograms which was centered around female empowerment.

As Beyonce is pregnant with twin babies, many wondered how she would look and she definitely looked far along in an all gold sequined outfit featuring a large crown.

Chance The Rapper took home the very first gong at the held at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

She was followed up by introduction of host James Corden as he had a humourous opening number where his lift failed to take him to the top of the steps before falling into a hole and rolling down the steps. 

One interesting moment came when Twenty One Pilots accepted the Best Pop Duo/Group performance prize in their underwear.

After their name had been announced the duo dropped their pants and walked on stage as Tyler Joseph explained that they had watched The Grammys in their underwear a few years back and promised they would do the same if they ever won an award.

He ended the inspiring speech by saying: 'Anyone from anywhere can do anything.' 

The Grammy Awards are chosen by members of the music industry and in the past have often been dominated by rock and country music. 

But in recent years, more R&B and hip hop artists have been recognized in line with the commercial success of the music form.

Drake and  Beyonce, along with Adele, had three of the biggest selling albums worldwide of 2016. 

When the nominations were announced in December Billboard said Grammy voters had 'recognized with their nominees this year what the rest of the music-listening world has long accepted: that both its commercial and critical center lies with pop, hip hop and R&B.'

However, singer-songwriter Frank Ocean is one artist snubbing the show this year and did not submit his latest album Blonde for Grammys consideration.

He told New York Times 'I think the infrastructure of the awarding system and the nomination system and screening system is dated.'

Kanye West, who has been nominated for eight awards, is also expected to skip the event along with Drake and Justin Bieber.

According to a source Bieber is said to believe that the annual event is no longer 'relevant or representative especially when it comes to young singers'.

Drake also has eight nominations but is in England and set to perform in Manchester on Sunday.
