Adele Praises Beyonce During Grammy Acceptance Speech
Ciara Luciano

During the 2017 Grammys, Adele was nominated and won Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album. Four of which Beyonce was also nominated for. While accepting the award for Album of the year Adele decided to praise Beyonce by saying she believed Beyonce should have received the award instead of herself. Beyonce seemed as shocked as the audience, allowing Adele’s words to bring her to tears.

Throughout all the Grammys, which was created in 1959, there has only been ten black artists who have won album of the year and none of which have been in the last decade.There has been tweets discrediting Adele for “differentiating between races”. One of them reads “how dare she pity Beyoncé and offer her some kind of pathetic shout out”.

Although some saw Adele’s speech as pity towards Beyonce, others believed it was an act of empowerment and truth. One tweet states “Adele gives it up to Beyoncé. Women are so wonderful.”

“I’m very humbled and very grateful and gracious, but the artist of my life is Beyoncé. The Lemonade album, for me, is so monumental,” Adele explained in her speech. “You are our light,” she said. “The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel, is empowering. You make them stand up for themselves. I love you. I always have and I always will.” Following the speech Adele broke the Grammy in half to share with Beyonce.
