Grammy Watch: Adele Wins! But What About That Speech??Shana Aborn
Congratulations to Adele!
The British pop sensation won the first Grammy Award of the evening — Best Pop Solo Performance — for her live rendition of “Set Fire to the Rain.”
It’s a lovely follow-up to last year’s ceremonies, where Adele walked away with six Grammys and received rousing cheers from the crowd.
This year, she returned as a veteran winner, dressed in a smashing short floral Valentino dress — a departure from her preferred black ensembles (as demonstrated in this photo from a few months ago).
She also returned as a new mom to baby Angelo, her son with Simon Konecki. She’s loving motherhood, even though she’s admitted it’s exhausting.
But oddly enough, her speech was short and lacking in sentiment. Even though she could have thanked her mother for supporting her all the way, her boyfriend for his love or her baby for making her life full and rich, she simply said what an honor it was to be among the other nominees (Rihanna, Katy Perry, Carly Rae Jepsen and Kelly Clarkson), offered her thanks, and quickly left the stage.
What’s up with that, Adele? Didn’t you get the memo that awards speeches have to be tearful, gushing and include everyone who ever meant anything to you in your life?
We know the producers already put the kibosh on too-revealing outfits. Did they also send around a memo forbidding winners to go past the one-minute mark or mention any family members?
Whatever the reason, we’re kind of bummed. We were kind of looking forward to hearing her talk about the new chapter in her life, or make a joke about being out past Angelo’s bedtime.
Ah well…the night is still young. Maybe Taylor Swift or Flo Rida will make up for Adele’s brevity.
