In a tearful speech while accepting the final award, Adele waxed emotionally about Beyoncé's album Lemonade.
"I can't possibly accept this award," she said. "The Lemonade album was just so monumental, Beyoncé. It was so monumental and well thought-out and beautiful and soul-bearing... we appreciate that. All of us artists here adore you. You are our light."
Then in a moment of excitement, Adele actually broke the Album Of The Year trophy as she happily showed off the gong in two pieces before walking off-stage.
