Despite dropping an F-bomb on live television and requesting a do-over on her tribute to George Michael, Adele ruled the evening by taking home five Grammy Awards – including Album, Song, and Record of the Year! Adele opened the show singing, “Hello,” and we were pleasantly surprised to see her take the stage later on in tribute to Michael, but right as she started singing the first chorus of her rendition of “Fast Love,” she stopped the entire show, apologized, and said she needed to start again. We also watched some technical difficulties with Metallica and Lady Gaga performing together when James Hetfield’s mic wasn’t working. A highly anticipated performance from a very pregnant Beyonce included a couple of songs from her “Lemonade” album. Bruno Mars took the stage twice, including an amazing tribute to Prince with “Let’s Go Crazy.” Demi Lovato and Tori Kelly celebrated the 40th anniversary of “Stayin’ Alive” with their Bee Gees tribute. Another fun moment was when Twenty One Pilots accepted their award in their underwear, explaining that they made a pact to do so years ago before they were famous!

Meantime, did Adele slip and tell us that those marriage rumors are true? In her acceptance speech for album of the year, she thanked her HUSBAND and their son! But she later went back to referring to Simon Konecki as her “partner” in post-show interviews.
The BAFTA Awards also went down yesterday (British Academy of Film and Television Arts), with “La La Land” taking home five awards including best film and best actress for Emma Stone.
Is there a “Dirty Dancing” sequel coming our way? Eleanor Bergstein, the movie’s creator, said recently she’s ready to further the story of Johnny and Baby. She didn’t share many details of where she wants the story to go, but she did say she pictures Frances “Baby” Houseman as a social activist in 2017.
