While Beyonce might not have won all 9 Grammy awards she was nominated for in the recent 2017 Grammy awards, it’s undeniable that there was one name on everyone’s lips after the glamorous ceremony; Beyonce.
Despite being nominated for 9 Grammys, Beyonce only scooped two of those this year, winning Best Urban Contemporary Album and Best Music Video for the fantastic ‘Formation’ which is a stunning salute to girl power and undoubtedly one of her most popular singles of recent years.
The 35 year old singer was one of the performers at the prestigious awards ceremony, opting to perform a medley of tracks from her critically acclaimed album ‘Lemonade’. She looked simply radiant with her blossoming baby bump, wearing a stunning gold gown full of sequins, paired with an intricate and detailed headdress.Her stunning performance was quite appropriately focused on the theme of motherhood, which is very topical indeed, after Beyonce recently announced that she was happily expecting twins in what has become the most liked photograph on Instagram of all time.
After being introduced by her mother Tina Knowles, Queen Bey then launched into a passionate monologue about motherhood, before wowing the crowds with her renditions of ‘Love Drought’ and ‘Sandcastles’. Watching proudly from the crowd was her husband and partner to her empire, Jay Z, and their adorable daughter Blue Ivy who is soon to become a big sister.
Her family most certainly were not the only ones in the crowd moved by her performance, but a rousing standing ovation from the crowd was not the only praise she received on the evening. Bey was pipped to the post for the most prestigious award of the evening, ‘Album of the Year’ by none other than British icon Adele. Adele, who is a huge Beyonce fan, took to the stage to make her speech and exclaimed that she could not possibly accept the award, and she felt that Beyonce deserved the award, and that her incredible body of work ‘Lemonade’ was undoubtedly the album of the year. As Adele made her passionate speech praising Beyonce, Queen Bey looked on from the crowd whilst physically moved to tears.
This emotional exchange between two of pop’s best female vocalists of all time is testament to the girl power which Beyonce preaches in her music, and her utter admiration from fellow celebrities and fans alike is why she simply stole the show at this year’s Grammys.
