Beyoncé And Adele Are Going Head-To-Head At The Grammys This Year
Adele came in with five, but for key categories like Album of the Year, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
Both Beyoncé and Adele made all three of the top lists — Record, Song and Album of the Year, for “Formation,” “Hello,” 25 and Lemonade. In fact, they were the only two artist to do so.
While it’s definitely still anyone’s game, it does seem likely the big wins in February will come down to these two powerhouses.
So, how does one choose between Beyoncé and Adele?
I mean, both are near perfect specimens of humans and musicians. It’s quite the conundrum, and a lot of people are struggling with it.
Some people are Adele all the way.
Others feel while Adele is amazing, Beyoncé earned the win this year.
And some are upset the Grammys are making us choose at all.
Still others are just hype to see two kick-ass ladies dominating the field this year, no matter who wins what.
That’s basically where I’m at right now. Give Adele Best Song and Bey Best Album, and I’ll be more than happy for my two queens.
(And hey, that leaves Best Record open for my third queen, Rihanna. I’m just saying!)
