The 59th Annual Grammy Awards were held on Sunday, February 12, 2017, at the  Staples Center in Los Angeles, USA. The nominees for the Grammy Awards 2017 included Adele, Beyonce Knowles, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Drake, Ariana Grande and The Chainsmokers, with Adele sweeping the awards with five awards and Beyonce with four wins. The Grammy Awards 2017 red carpet was dazzling with a bevy of beautiful stars from the music world walking on it, including Katy Perry, Rihanna, Adele, Beyonce and many more. But the awards ceremony took away everyone’s breath, with British singer Adele taking home five trophies! At the Grammy Awards 2017, Adele was honoured with Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album for the album 25 and the song Hello. Beyonce grabbed her two Grammys for 2017 for Best Urban Contemporary Album (Lemonade) and Best Music Video (Formation).

It was heartening to see Adele saying that Beyonce should’ve won the main awards this year at the Grammys, while humbly accepting her five wins. “My album of the year is Lemonade,” said Adele, referring to Queen Bey’s album. “I can’t possibly accept this award, said Adele, “I’m very humbled and very grateful and gracious, but my life is Beyoncé.” Wow! That was a first. There is much competition at the Grammy Awards that recognise the best music artists, production guys and records. So, it was great to see one artist praising the other after winning more awards than her! David Bowie won four honours for Blackstar, even as other music legends who left us in 2016 were paid tribute, including Prince and George Michael. Here is a complete list of winners of the Grammy Awards 2017 (the 59th Grammy Awards):
