Adele stopped her tribute to George Michael part way through for a do over, but would go on to top all winners with five awards, including Record Of The Year for "Hello" and Album Of The Year for 25.
David Bowie, who died just days before releasing his albumBlackstar on Jan. 8, 2016, won four GRAMMYs, including Best Alternative Music Album. Greg Kurstin, Adele's producer and songwriting partner, also won four, including Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical.
Chance The Rapper earned three GRAMMYs, including Best New Artist. And Tom Elmhirst, an engineer/mixer on Adele's record, also won three.
In winning Album Of The Year, Adele became the second solo female act to win the category twice, following Taylor Swift's second win last year.
In addition to exciting solo turns by Adele ("Hello"), a visibly pregnant Beyoncé (an empowerment medley of "Love Drought" and "Sandcastles"), and Ed Sheeran ("Shape Of You"), the telecast provided a wide variety of performances and special moments.
