Adele literally WON the Grammys

It may as well have been called The Adele Show. And we LOVED it!

We thought there was nothing that could make us love Adele even more than we already do.

But after last night's Grammys awards ceremony, we are happy to say we were wrong about that.

Adele completely owned the show. She won loads of awards, she restarted her tribute to George Michael after it went wrong - and she made Beyoncé CRY with happiness.

Adele won FIVE Grammys

Last night, Adele won five Grammys at the 59th annual ceremony. She picked up the gongs for Song of the Year (Hello), Record of the Year (Hello), Best Pop Solo Performance (Hello), Best Pop Vocal Album (25) and Album of the Year (25).

This puts Adele tied with Alicia Keys as 4th highest female to win the most Grammys with 15 wins in total, behind Aretha Franklin, Beyoncé and Alison Krauss.

Yep, you read that right - Adele channelled her very own Cady Heron from Mean Girls and broke her Grammy in half, dedicating it to Beyoncé. With an emotional wobbly voice, she said: "Five years ago, when I was last here, I was pregnant and I didn't know. It was the biggest blessing of my life.

"In my pregnancy and through becoming a mother, I lost a lot of myself and I still do struggle being a mum - it's really hard!

"Tonight, winning this, it feels like a bit of me has started to come back to myself."

We can all empathise with that, Adele!

The singer couldn't hold back the tears for any longer though, and went on to say: "But I couldn't possibly accept this award, and I'm very humbled and very gracious, but the artist of my life is Beyoncé, and this album for me, the Lemonade album, was just so monumental and so beautiful and soul-bearing.

"All us artists here, we fucking adore you! You are our light, and the way you make me and my friends feel - the way you make me and my black friends feel is empowering and you make them stand up for themselves, and I love you - I always have and I always will."

You can even watch Beyoncé's reaction to Adele's speech. She can't hold back the tears! Even Jay-Z looks pretty emotional.

Adele restarted her tribute to George Michael when it didn't go to plan

One of the first things a performer is taught is: "The show must go on" - as in, if you mess up, just carry on.

And although it makes things run smoother for everyone else, the performer won't forget it. EVER.

But Adele refused to let it lie after she had a hiccup whilst performing a tribute to George Michael. She started singing a version of Fast Love by the late singer, but apologised to the audience and asked to restart.

She accidentally sang the uncensored version of the song, singing: "All this bullshit conversation" and immediately asked if she could start the song over again.

She said: "I know it's live TV; I'm sorry I can't do it again, like last year. I'm sorry for swearing. I'm sorry for starting again. Can we please start it again?

"I'm sorry — I cant mess this up for him."

You do what you gotta do, Adele!

She confirmed she was married to long-term partner Simon Konecki

Adele sparked rumours in December that she had married her long-term partner and father of baby Angelo, Simon Konecki.

She was spotted shopping in Beverley Hills just after Christmas Day last year with what some were saying was a wedding band.

And she confirmed their marriage in her acceptance speech for Album of the Year last night, saying: "Grammys, I appreciate it, the Academy, I love you, my manager, my husband and my son - you're the only reason I do it."

See that? "My husband."

You sneaky thing, Adele.
