Singer Adele bagged all the top honours including Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year at the 59th annual Grammy Awards for her album “25″ and hit single “Hello”.

The British singer also won the trophy for Best Pop Solo Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album. This is the second time that Adele has clinched all the three big awards.

In 2012, she won the Record Of The Year, Album Of The Year and Song Of The Year awards for her album “21″ and single “Rolling in the deep”. However, while receiving the Album Of The Year award on Sunday night, Adele refused to take the trophy saying that singer Beyonce Knowles deserved it more than her as she makes “black people feel empowered”.
