Queen Bey was honored by Adele at the Grammys on Sunday night.
Following her Song, Record, and Album of the Year sweep, the British singer paid homage to her idol Beyoncé during her acceptance speeches.
"My dream and my idol is Queen Bey," she said during her acceptance speech for Record of the Year Award. "I adore you. You move my soul and you have done for nearly 17 years. I adore you and I want you to be my mummy."
Beyoncé looked on in tears while standing by hubby Jay Z. "The way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my black friends feel is empowering," Adele continued. "You make them stand up for themselves and I love you. I always have and I always will."
Adele later broke her gramophone in two and gave one half to her Queen Bey. Adele reportedly said backstage, "I thought it was her year. What the fuck does she have to do to win Album of the Year?"
The British star went home with 5 Grammys including Best Pop Solo Performance for “Hello” and Best Pop Vocal Album for 25. Beyoncé only won two: Best Urban Contemporary Album for LEMONADE and Best Music Video for “Formation.”
