The Grammys 2017 was not quite what most of us expected, especially after Adele declared that Beyonce deserved the Album Of The Year award by literally splitting it in two and giving the other piece to Queen Bey.

This year's Grammys was an event like no other with awe-inspiring performances from the best artists in the industry as well as unexpected twists during the awarding ceremonies.

One of the most talked about topics related to the Grammys 2017 is Adele's acceptance speech for winning the Album Of The Year award, The Independent reported.

"I can't possibly accept this award."

Adele, who also won at the Grammys for the Song Of The Year, went head-to-head with Beyonce in the album category but decided that she should not be the one to be given the award. At the time, Adele was so emotional that she did something that has relatively never been witnessed on the Grammys stage before.

And in an unexpected turn of events, Adele decided to break her trophy in half and offered one piece to Queen Bey. According to BBC News, the 28-year-old singer won four other awards in addition to the one she broke.

Artists such as Frank Ocean and Kanye West were absent during the event because of that notion. In fact, Ocean even refused to submit his album Blonde"for consideration in the Album Of The Year award since the Grammys "seem to be representing very well for people who come from where I come from, and hold down what I hold down."

Because of this, fans of both artists as well as critics took to social media to express their thoughts about what happened during the event in light of this controversy.

"I thought it was her year. What the f*** does she have to do to win Album of the Year?"

Meanwhile, other winners during the Grammy 2017 include Chance The Rapper who bagged a total of three Grammys, including one for the Best Rap Album for the self-released record Coloring Book.

And while she did not get the Album Of The Year, Beyonce received other awards like Best Urban Contemporary Album as well as the Best Music Video for "Formation." She also took the Grammys 2017 stage and performed while pregnant with twins, says BBC.
