Well, Adele won all of the Grammys. Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year all went to the London songstress whose third album 25 and its lead single "Hello" beat out remarkably fierce competition for top spot in their respective categories. Often overwhelmed by accolades and emotions and speeches, Adele's final speech of the evening, for Album of the Year, paid tribute to Beyoncé, who sat in the front row with a tear running down her cheek.

Later on in the press room, Adele elaborated on what Queen Bey means to her ("I don't take any fucking shit when it comes to anyone not liking Beyonce, you can't be in my life [...] I feel like it was her time to win"), and asked the question on everyone's lips, namely: "What the fuck has Beyoncé got to do to win Album of the Year?" Watch the speech and Adele's press room address below. And remember that the best album of 2016 came out in 2015. Music's. Biggest. Night.
