My artist of my life is Beyonce, says Adele at the Grammys

Paris Jackson, the 18-year-old daughter of King of Pop Michael Jackson, voiced hope when she saw the enthusiastic crowd in the Staples Center in Los Angeles - the scene eight years earlier of her father's memorial service.

But how many Grammys has the star now bagged? The singer even had the honour of kicking off this year's Grammys as she crooned the chartbuster "Hello".

Despite the glitch, she gave a handsome rendition of Michael's "Fast Love".

It was the second straight year of hiccups for Adele after a microphone fell on the piano during her Grammy performance a year ago.

She was clearly distressed about messing up the tribute, and the show silenced out her first line as she apparently muttered "f***", before telling the crowd: "I can't do it again, not after past year, I can't mess this up for him".

After letting slip an expletive, which producers managed to censor in time for the live broadcast, Adele said, "I'm sorry for swearing, and I'm sorry for starting again".

It's fair to say that Adele and Beyonce were feeling the love this year at the Grammys - despite going head-to-head in a number of categories.

The English balladeer swept up the top prizes of the night at the music industry's biggest night - Album, Record and Song of the Year.

She later added in a press conference: "Like I said in my speech, my album of the year is Lemonade. I adore you", Adele said to Beyonce as she accepted her award. We saw another side of you that we don't always get to see. You are our light.

'So thank you for your patience with me and helping to create my favourite song I've ever done. The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering. Some sites reported that Adele broke the trophy accidentally, and then requested a replacement. Obviously, her vision was very new and I just thought this year would be the year they would kind of go with the tide.

And "Blackstar", which he released two days before his death last year from an undisclosed battle with cancer, was controversially passed over for Album of the Year honors.
