Adele has beaten Beyoncé for most of the prestigious titles at stake at the 59th Grammys in Los Angeles.
The British born singer, with the full name Adele Adkins scooped Best Pop Solo Performance for her hit song Hello, brushing aside Beyoncé’s Hold Up.
Adele also won Best Song of the Year with Hello, also shrugging off the challenge of Beyoncé’s Formation,a track from the album Lemonade.
She also won Best Pop vocal album beating Justin Bieber among other contenders. And to crown the night her best selling Album 25 won Album of the year, while Hello took the Record of the Year.
Expectations were that Beyoncé would give Adele a big fight for the title, having been nominated in nine categories. But there was no contest as the Briton was the lone star of the Grammy night.
The only award that Beyoncé won in the night was for Best Video.
