There were plenty of great performances and highly charged political statements, but really, the 2017 Grammys belonged to two single-named artists: Beyoncé and Adele.

First of all, Adele just couldn’t accept the fact her album 25 won over Beyoncé’s album Lemonade. In her acceptance speech, Adele was appreciative for the honor, truly, but she just thought Lemonade was “monumental,” “beautiful and soul bearing.” “All us artists adore you,” the British singer said. “You are our light. And the way that you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering, and you make them stand up for themselves. And I love you, I always have.”

Beyoncé, who teared up during the speech, has never won Album of the Year, if you can believe that. She’s 0-4 at this point. It’s a head scratcher. Later, Adele broke one of her Grammys in two for her Queen Bey.

Then there was Beyoncé’s performance, coming on stage wearing a gold, beaded almost-nothing dress and showing her newly announced pregnancy (with twins, no less!) to the whole world.

Adele also performed. She started with her song “Hello” but then she stopped mid-performance of George Michael’s “Fastlove,” unhappy with the sound.

“I know it’s live TV, I’m so sorry, I f–ked up, I can’t do it again like last year,” she apologized. “I’m sorry for swearing and I’m sorry for starting again. Can we please start it again? I’m sorry,” Adele apologized again, shaking her head, as the audience erupted in applause. “I can’t mess this up for him. I’m sorry. I can’t, I’m sorry for swearing…I’m sorry, Ken [Erlich, executive producer].” Adele started again and brought the house down.
