This year’s Grammy Awards features a new host from the “The Late Late Show” comedian James Corden and the spotlight is on two powerful women in the music industry Adele and Beyonce. There is an obvious imminent showdown between these two women in a face-off for the top 3 categories- song, record and album of the year grammy awards.

Beyonce appears as a goddess oozing with femininity in ethereal stage performance that leaves the audience breathless. Beyonce, perfectly nailed it and is now media’s ultimate homage to motherhood. On the other hand, Adele showed her human side including flaws in genuine dramatic performances.


Beyonce rendered an amazing performance on stage singing “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” from album Lemonade. Towards the end of this production number, Beyonce directly looked into the TV cam and shared this message to all women “if we’re going to heal, let it be glorious.”

Adele opens the night with her hit song “Hello” although a bit shaky at first but she managed to show her vocal prowess. Her tribute to George Michael started quite awkward that she requested to stop singing while blurting out curses over the microphone but apologizes afterwards. She later requested to start all over again and controlled her emotions while singing her own mellow version of George Michael’s “Fast Love”. The audience loved it and applauded her.

                                  


There are a total of 84 Grammys to be given but the 75 grammy awards were handed before the TV coverage began.
Before the Grammy Awards night live telecast started, Adele managed to take home two awards- best pop solo performance for her song “Hello” and best pop vocal album for “25”. While pregnant ‘goddess’ Beyonce took home the best music video award for the song “Formation”.
