"My dream and my idol is Queen Bey and I adore you and you move my soul every single day and you have done for nearly 17 years," she gushed after her Record of the Year win. "I adore you and I want you to be my mummy."
When she returned to the stage moments later for her Album of the Year trophy, she heaped on even more praise and even made Knowles cry.
"I can't possibly accept this award and I'm very humbled and I'm very grateful and gracious but my artist of my life is Beyonce," Adele said on stage. "And this album to me, the Lemonade album, was just so monumental, Beyonce. It was so monumental and so well thought out and so beautiful and soul baring and we all got to see another side to you you don't always let us see and we appreciate that. All us artists here adore you. You are our light. And the way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering and you make them stand up for themselves and I love you, I always have and I always will."
