During her acceptance speech, the 'Hello' hitmaker breaks down in tears and says it should have been Beyonce who won the prestigious awards.

AceShowbiz - Adele got the biggest honor of the night at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. After delivering a heartfelt tribute to George Michaels with a rendition of "Fastlove", the "Hello" hitmaker was honored with Album of the Year for her record "25".

Adele also won "Record of the Year" and "Song of the Year" for her hit "Hello". During both acceptance speeches, the "Rolling in the Deep" hitmaker spoke directly to Beyonce Knowles, telling her how much of an inspiration she was.

"I can't possibly accept this award," Adele said while crying, "And I am very humbled and I am very grateful and gracious, but my artist of my life is Beyonce. And this album for me, the 'Lemonade' album, was just so monumental. It was so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-bearing and we all got to see another side of you that you don't always let us see and we appreciate that... You are our light."

She continued, "And the way that you make me and my friends feel, and the way that you make my black friends feel is empowering and you make them stand up for themselves and I love you, and I always have and I always will."

Beyonce couldn't hold back her tears during Adele's speech and said, "I love you, Adele."

Besides the top three awards, Adele brought home awards for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance. Beyonce didn't come home empty handed as she won two awards, Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video. David Bowie, meanwhile, won five awards, including Best Rock Song and Best Rock Performance.

Other winners included Drake, Chance The Rapper, Maren Morris, The Chainsmokers, Solange Knowles, Lalah Hathaway, Twenty One Pilots, Cage the Elephant and Megadeth.
