Winners From the 59th Annual Grammy Award

The 59th annual Grammy Awards have come and gone, giving us another year of some incredible performances, some controversial moments and all the memes you’ll see on your timeline in the coming weeks.

Adele scored a major victory in the three big categories, winning Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year for “Hello” and Album Of The Year for 25. The song, a performance of which kicked off the televised portion of the ceremony, also won for Best Pop Solo Performance. Adele also performed a tribute to the late George Michael, but messed up her first take of “Fastlove”and restarted it after some cussing.

The 28-year-old U.K. singer thanked Beyoncé directly in her end-of-night speeches, praising her fellow nominee for the power of LEMONADE and musing that she wished Beyoncé could be her mother.

Beyoncé didn’t go home empty handed, though, winning the trophies for Best Music Video for Formation and Best Urban Contemporary Album for LEMONADE. As she accepted the second award, she gave an impassioned speech while her husband Jay Z and their daughter Blue Ivy watched on.

Her live performance was also nothing short of show-stopping.
