Album of the Year = “25” (Adele)

Why this matters: The ever-classy Adele used two acceptance speeches to profess her love for Beyonce, whose performance centered around motherhood.

Record of the Year: “Hello” (Adele)

Why this matters: The ballad queen had a big night that included beating out Beyonce, Rihanna, Lukas Graham and Twenty One Pilots.

Song of the Year: “Hello” (Adele)

Why this matters: This category is all about the songwriters, especially Adele Adkins and Greg Kurstin this year.

Best New Artist: Chance The Rapper

Why this matters: His mixtape “Coloring Book” won Best Rap Album and is the first streaming-only record with a Grammy nod.
