It was the shock of the night. While it was understandable for Adele’s Hello to win Song of the Year, everyone thought that Beyonce would take home the award for Album of the Year, but she did not, and Adele, who had an amazing era with 25, felt the same.

The multiplatinbum selling artist used her acceptance speech to praise the singer, who has had a major influence on her life:

“My artist of my life is BeyoncĂ©. And this album for me, the ‘Lemonade’ album is just so monumental. It was so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul-bearing, and we all got to see another side of you that you don’t always let us see and we appreciate that You are our light.”

At the press conference following the show, Adele where she elaborated more on what she said:

“I spoke to her before just to let her know how honored and privileged I felt to be nominated alongside her, and we spoke afterward as well and she was very gracious and humble, as always, as we’ve come to expect. And the reason I felt the need to say something is because my album of the year is Lemonade. She is my icon of my whole life.”

She added:

“I felt like it was her time to win. What the f— does she have to do to win album of the year? That’s how I feel.”

Adele also revealed that she is indeed a part of the Beyhive and is just as passionate for the star as her regular fans:

“There’s friendships I have that are completely tied to us being complete Beyonce stans. I don’t take any f—ing sh– when it comes to anyone not liking Beyonce. You can’t be in my life. You simply can’t.”
