Adele should really take her own advice as she picked up the Best Solo Performance Award at the Grammys for her track Easy on Me.
The British songstress was beaming all evening in a stunning deep crimson velvet dress and her trademark wide smile- that was until she took to the stage to receive her award for the track which was inspired by her ten-year-old son Angelo.
As her boyfriend Rich Paul looked on proudly, Adele admitted that his advice to her ahead of the night was pretty much redundant.
She said he told her ‘If you win anything, don’t cry. And here I am crying…’ before she turned her attention back to Angelo.
She began ‘I really was just looking forward to coming tonight. I just want to dedicate this to my son, Angelo.
‘I wrote the first verse in the shower when I was choosing to change my son’s life. He’s been nothing but humble and gracious and loving to me the whole time.’
Adele had been up for seven awards at the show, and this was the 16th time she took home a gong out of 65 nominations over the years.
It was also extra special for the diva, as the award was presented to her by Dwayne Johnson, a.k.a. The Rock, after the show’s host Trevor Noah blew the whistle on the fact that Adele was dying to meet the wrestler all evening.
‘Get up here, new best friend!’ Dwayne called as she made her way to the stage to give him a big hug before thanking her fans for all their support over the last year.
