After an amazing an successful Grammy Awards that took place last night, Karawa Diary decided to bring to you the sensational acts. Yes! we did not want to bore you with a long list and decided to bring just two for you.
Adele the Grammy goddess
Say “Hello” to the 2017 Grammys goddess, Adele. The singer took home the final two awards of the night, Record of the Year (for “Hello”) and Album of the Year (for “25”) and, it seems, a new husband. Adele was gracious and emotional and did all the right things in her speeches as she thanked her team, her family and her fans. Both times, she also turned her attention to Beyonce, whom she beat in both categories. “My dream and my idol is Queen B and I adore you.
You move my soul every single day and you have done for nearly 17 years,” Adele said during her Record of the Year speech as Beyonce clutched her chest. “I adore you and I want you to be my mummy, alright?” Beyonce was seen shedding tears as Adele dedicated her Album of the Year honor to the “Lemonade” artist. But at the end of Adele’s speech for the night’s biggest award, she dropped a bombshell when she referred to her longtime love Simon Konecki — who’s the father of her 4-year-old son, Angelo — as her “husband,” giving credence to reports speculating that they’d secretly married.
Chance the Rapper wins 3 Grammys
Chance the Rapper punctuated his historic night at the Grammys Sunday with a spirited medley of “How Great” and “All We Got,” off his Grammy-winning “Coloring Book”project.
The 23-year-old Chicago rapper won three Grammy awards — his first ever — for best new artist, rap album and rap performance. Though Chance is certainly not a new artist, especially not in Chicago, he garnered seven Grammy nominations after the Recording Academy relaxed its eligibility rules last year to allow works released via streaming platforms.
“Glory be to God. I claim this victory in the name of the Lord,” Chance said in accepting his award for best new artist. “I want to thank God for my mother and my father, who supported me since I was young, for Kirsten, for Kensli, for all of Chicago, and I want to thank God for putting amazing people in my life.”
He thanked his brother, rapper Taylor Bennett, and gave a shoutout to independent artists in his subsequent acceptance speech for best rap album for “Coloring Book,” which was released in May. He managed to beat out his mentor, Kanye West, who was nominated for “The Life of Pablo.”
