Adele, who suffered technical issues during a Grammy performance past year, cut short her first attempt while swearing and apologizing.
The 28-year-old entertainer dedicated the win to Beyonce's Lemonade instead, and things got emotional.
Unlike some white people who may have beat out someone more deserving of the award (ahem, Macklemore beating Kendrick Lamar), Adele didn't wait until the show was over to post an Instagram message to Beyonce´.
That time, she carried on with the song, but speaking about the performance during an interview on The Ellen Show after the Grammys, Adele said that if she came up against similar issues in the future, she'd stop the show and start again. "I'm very humbled and very grateful and gracious, but my life is Beyoncé". It was so monumental and well thought-out and attractive and soul-bearing. we appreciate that.
"And all of us artists here adore you", she continued to cheers and applause from the audience.
"What I'll say is that any negative tweets you see are fake tweets", Corden joked.
Adele thanked her manager Jonathan Dickins, telling him: "I owe you everything".
And moments later, Adele was back on stage, this time unwilling to take the Album of the Year honor.
In his lengthy note, Ocean criticised the Grammys for giving Album of the Year to Taylor Swift's 1989 over Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly during last year's ceremony.
"I can't possibly accept this award", she said. "I adore you, you move my soul every single day".
@KalilahPerkins said: 'Adele meant no harm by referring to the empowerment her black friends felt when listening to Beyonce's album.
Marianne Miles wrote on Twitter: "Seeing a lot of misguided comments regarding Adele's 'black friends" comment. She knew the Recording Academy did Beyonce´wrong and wasn't afraid to admit it.
Just look at these photos and tell me they aren't powerful.
The Hello singer also paid tribute to Beyonce. The illustrious duo also went head to head in the album of the year and song of the year categories, and Adele coming out on top is sure to cause consternation among Beyonce fans.
David Bowie on Sunday won four posthumous Grammys for his final album "Blackstar", while Adele set the early pace in her head-to-head battle with Beyonce by winning two early awards, with the main trophies still up for grabs.
