Adele and Beyonce: Grammys 2017

Advertisement

The 2017 Grammys was really all about two women. In the hands of any lesser women, the Grammys would have been about the catfight between those two divas. But not with these two magical women who are both heroes of feminism in such different ways and showed us all how to run the world like a girl.

First, we have Queen Bey who showed up on stage to perform pregnant, glowing like a mother goddess.

Strong, beautiful, maternal, and celebrating the power of female generations.

Just look at this biblically epic tableau of three generations of Beyonce blood and try not to feel empowered.
Or this moment, when Beyonce sits as a Madonna, connected to all women, who bring new life into the world.

And then, in a moment that made everyone hold their breath, she showed her strength and trust as she floated backward in a chair.

Beyonce showed us that women are goddesses and forces to be reckoned with.

Meanwhile, Adele’s performance was very different. Taking the stage dressed simply in black and without the swirling production, she honored the late singer George Michael.

But just a few moments into the song, Adele did the unthinkable for a professional on live tv. She stopped. And swore. And begged to start over.

Now, while that sounds like the most diva thing to do, it came from such an emotional and genuine place that the audience, in the end, couldn’t help but rise to their feet to support the singer’s second chance, which was obviously perfection.

Adele’s lesson, in stark contrast to Beyonce’s, was that women can be strong enough to not always be perfect. She showed us that you can ask for and do deserve a second chance to do what is right.
Of course, this is a lesson many feel all Americans could take right now.

Side note – it’s also important to mention that while all of this divine female perfection is going on, Rihanna was perfectly all of us, just rocking out, being inspired, and trying to sneak a drink.

Rihanna was nominated, but clearly didn’t even care that this is not her night.

There can only be one

Yes, this is, in fact, an awards show. Which means that one of these of perfect women is going to win and the other equally perfect woman is going to have to lose.

While Beyoncé won two Grammys, including best music video for “Formation” and best urban contemporary album for “Lemonade,” Adele got five total awards, including Album of the Year for “25.”
It seems impossible to have to choose between two such empowering and talented divas. Why can’t they both just win?

Well that seemed to be what even Adele wanted. In fact, she actually just wanted Beyonce to win. But didn’t she already use her do-over for the night?

Wetting the stage with more of her tears, she said, “I can’t possibly accept this award. The Lemonade album was just so monumental, Beyoncé. It was so monumental and well thought-out and beautiful and soul-bearing… we appreciate that. All of us artists here adore you. You are our light.”

And then, somehow, magically the Grammy broke. And it could be shared!
