Adele Breaks Her Grammy Award in Half and Dedicates It to Beyonce: ‘I Voted for Her’

Just when you thought Adele and Beyoncé’s Grammys lovefest couldn’t get any more romantic, the British singer went and broke her award in half to reportedly share with Queen Bey.

After her showstopping acceptance speech for Album of the Year (which you can watch in the video above), Adele snapped her Grammy in two and dedicated it to Beyoncé, who she was up against.

The "Hello" singer was photographed holding the two pieces of the golden trophy up in the air, after breaking it in two.

She had praised her fellow musical diva several times during the show as she beat her out for Record of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year.

She even made Beyoncé cry with the speech for her Album of the Year win for her comeback creation 25, as she gushed about how “monumental,” “beautiful,” and “soul baring,” Bey’s Lemonade album was.

Then she went backstage to the Grammys pressroom and continued lavishing Beyoncé with love.

“Like I said in my speech,” she said. “For me my album for you was Lemonade, so a piece of me did die inside as a Beyoncé stan. I’m not going to lie, cause I was completely rooting for her — I voted for her.”

Adele is the first person ever to sweep all three main Grammys categories twice. She previously won all three for her second studio album, 21, in 2012.
