Grammys 2017: Beyoncé Wins Best Urban Contemporary Album

Adele performs onstage during the 59th GRAMMY Awards at STAPLES Center on February 12, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.

During her acceptance speech for both awards, Adele took the time to acknowledge Beyonce.

Hello, Adele, we definitely hear you! A Tribe Called Quest gave a politically-charged performance of their song "We the People", which featured rapper Busta Rhymes accusing "President Agent Orange" of "perpetuating evil". It's also a moment that everyone will be talking about for years.

Beyonce's younger sister, critical R&B darling Solange, won her first Grammy for best R&B performance (it was her first-ever nomination). The evening couldn't be complete without the "Late Late Show" host's trademark carpool karaoke, singing "Sweet Caroline" with Neil Diamond and friends.

But she finished in runner-up position in three other categories in which she had been nominated, including pop solo performance for her track "Hold Up" from her "Lemonade" album.

Adele teared up after flubbing her tribute to George Michael.

Katy Perry wore an armband that read "Persist" during her performance of "Chained to the Rhythm", a dance tune about becoming complacent in the face of the world's problems.

Likewise, singer and songwriter Rory Feek, part of the duo Joey + Rory before his wife, Joey Feek, died of cancer in March, saluted her while collecting the roots gospel album for their final recording together, "Hymns". I'm sorry, I can't mess this up for you.

But not much compared to Lady Gaga's riff-tastic, stage-diving romp with Metallica, which not even a faulty microphone could tame as the team roared through "Moth Into Flame". "One thousand girls raise their arms now that reconciliation is possible", she said in a voiceover as she cradled her baby bump on stage. This was shocking to all those who thought Lemonade was a monumental, generation-shifting album.

After Adele's five Grammys, Bowie won four, as did Adele's producer, Greg Kurstin. "My manager, my husband and my son - you're the only reason I do it".

Music lovers can catch the show online with CBS All-Access (after they enter in their cable information).
