Adele sang “Hello” as the Grammy Awards ceremony opened. Then unfortunately as she was performing a tribute to George Michael, she stopped singing and had to start over, according to the New York Times. Adele was visibly disappointed in herself for having to start over, according to Us Weekly. Later she apologized for an f-bomb that slipped out when she realized her mistake.
Beyonce delivered a beautiful tribute to motherhood, after being introduced by her own mother, Tina Knowles, according to the New York Times. Beyonce’s tribute is certainly fitting since she is currently pregnant with twins.
Beyonce appeared on stage as a golden fertility goddess with her baby bump featured rather than hidden away. Her daughter, Blue Ivy, joined her on stage at one point, making it a three-generation act.
Beyonce won a 2017 Grammy Award for the best music video, but was edged out by Adele for best pop solo performance. Beyonce also lost out on best music film. Beyonce was nominated for Lemonade, but The Beatles: Eight Days A Week The Touring Years took the Grammy Award.
