Adele, David Bowie and Chance the Rapper among the winners at the 2017 Grammys

As the stars convened last night for the 59th annual Grammy awards in Los Angeles, Adele was once again photographed leaving the ceremony clutching an armful of awards, winning in all five of the categories she was nominated in and taking home the awards for Record of the Year (for 'Hello'), Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album.

Adele gave an emotive speech in accepting the award for Best Album, insisting that the award should at least have been shared with Beyonce's Lemonade. However, not everything went the singer's way and Adele was forced to restart a performance of George Michael's 'Fast Love', performed as a tribute to the late singer, after experiencing technical difficulties. Adele apologised to the audience for restarting the tribute performance, saying “I can't mess this up for him”.

David Bowie was another big winner at last night's ceremony, posthumously picking up four awards including Best Rock Song, Best Rock Performance and Best Alternative Album for his work on his final album, Blackstar.

Other winners included Chance the Rapper, who took home awards for Best New Artist, Best Rap Album and Best Rap Performance, all in recognition of his work on Coloring Book. Elsewhere there were also wins for Chainsmokers (Best Dance Recording), Megadeth (Best Metal Performance), Cage The Elephant (Best Rock Album) and Twenty One Pilots (Best Group Performance).
