Adele Capped off an Astonishing Evening with an Emotional Speech
As Adele lets slip she’s married during a sensational night at the Grammys, we take a look at other highlights at this year’s bash…ALLY FARRELL
AWESOME Adele sealed a sensational night at the Grammys, by letting slip she is married.
The Brit singer, 28, is thought to have secretly got hitched to her partner Simon Konecki, 42, over the Christmas period.
And she referred to the charity boss — father of their four-year-old son Angelo — as her husband for the first time as she won all five gongs she was nominated for in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
Adele also snapped one award in half to share with US star Beyonce.
During an emotional speech after winning Album of the Year for 25 she gushed: “Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband and my son — you’re the only reason I do it.”
Adele, who was photographed wearing a wedding band late last year, has always previously referred to Simon as her boyfriend.
Last night a friend insisted: “It just shows again how private she is. She hasn’t even told many of those closest to her that she’s married. It’s typical Adele.”
Adele’s hit album 25 also won Best Pop Vocal Album, while her single Hello won Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.
Pregnant Beyonce, 35, won only Best Music Video and Best Urban Contemporary Album awards, despite nine nominations.
But she was in tears as Adele insisted she should share Album of the Year for her record Lemonade.
Tearing a piece off her trophy Adele declared: “I can’t possibly accept this award.
“I’m very humble and I’m grateful and gracious but my artist of my life is Beyonce and the Lemonade album was just so monumental.”
She added backstage: “She is my icon of my whole life. I don’t take any f****** s*** when it comes to anyone not liking Beyonce. You can’t be in my life. You simply can’t.
“I also feel like it was her time to win. What the f*** does she have to do to win Album of the Year?”
Beyonce bared her bump in a gold chain costume as she performed for the first time since revealing she is expecting twins with hubby Jay Z.
In an earlier acceptance speech Adele hit out at alcoholic dad Mark Evans, who walked out when she was aged three.
Praising manager Jonathan Dickins, she said: “I owe you everything and I love you like you’re my dad.”
She added: “I love you so, so much. I don’t love my dad, that’s the thing.”
The star also got a standing ovation for her performance of George Michael’s Fastlove in tribute to the tragic star, despite having to restart after hitting a bum note.
Adele, who also suffered technical hitches last year, fought back tears on stage as she admitted: “I f***** up, I can’t do it again like last year.“I’m sorry for swearing and I’m sorry for starting again. I can’t mess this up for him.”
She later confessed to being devastated as she had been working every day to perfect the cover.
HOST JAMES IS FALL GUY
HOST James Corden pretended to take a tumble as he poked fun at last year’s technical issues.
As he appeared for the start of the ceremony James, 38, fell down a hole before rolling down stairs.
The Late Late Show presenter went on to make a dig at President Donald Trump.
He also performed a Carpool Karaoke skit with stars including Jennifer Lopez, Neil Diamond and Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy, five.
TRAVOLTA GOES GAGA
JOHN Travolta let his jive do the talking at a Grammys after-party.
The Saturday Night Fever star, 62, took to the dance floor with Lady Gaga at the Interscope Records bash.
Gaga, 30, was at West Hollywood’s Peppermint Club with her agent Christian Carino, a week after it was reported they are dating.
Earlier Travolta struggled with the autocue to introduce country stars Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood.
