The 59th Annual Grammy Awards, hosted by James Corden, aired live on CBS Sunday night from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Adele was the biggest winner of the night, scoring five Grammys, including Album of the Year for 25, which some have considered being the biggest upset of the night after beating out Beyoncé’s Lemonade.

The 28-year-old singer, was surprised over her win, and though the honor should have went to Beyoncé, who was moved to tears by Adele’s heartfelt speech.

“I can’t possibly accept this award, and I’m very humble and very grateful, but my artist of my life is Beyoncé,” said Adele. “This album for me, the ‘Lemonade’ album, was so monumental. The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering,” she said. “And they stand up for themselves. And I love you. I always have.”

Beyoncé won two Grammys last night for Best Urban Contemporary Album for Lemonade and Best Music Video for “Formation.”
