        @ hail legend WHATEVER… you guys thought she would dominate this show and got the surprise of your life

        She will never ALBUM OF THE YEAR

        her music is not as UNIVERSAL as you think

        Adele album was more successful … Beyonce fans are so delusional

        Adele is not a lesser artist… She has sold more records than Beyonce… #facts

      What are you shading exactly?

      .

      Beyonce may have won one but she’s also lost 4 thus far.

      .

      Rihanna has lost 3.

      .

      There is no saying that any of them will win anything big.

      .

      Literally every other song in those two categories were more justified to win. Hotline Bling winning anything bigger than an AMA, maybe a billboard award, is a joke.

    The Grammys are going exactly the way I thought they would actually. So far the wins have matched my predictions. I always knew I was psychic. And I knew Solange was snatching that award. Now her and Bey both walked away with No. 1 albums and a Grammy on the side in the same year. Anyways, I’m interested in seeing how the rest of the show turns out. So far I have not been surprised.
    P.S. Drake is a mediocre “artist” who is more suitably described as a popstar rather than a rapper. Mess.

    Adele will probably sweep again,I don’t see Beyonce winning but one more and that’s ifffy.I think Rihanna will win record of the year.
    Those other artist in the R&B Album and Traditional R&B Vocal Performance categories were robbed!My goodness they were robbed!

      I think it’s more likely that Rihanna will win pop/duo. Adele might be taking record of the year. 25 was garbage so I don’t see any reason why that should win AOTY over anyone, let alone Beyoncé. But I can see why Hello would win.
