Adele Isn't The Only Big Winner From The Grammy Awards

Adele Isn't The Only Big Winner From The Grammy Awards

James Corden of CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS)'s "The Late Late Show" hosted his first major awards show - the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.

Adele stole the spotlight and edged out Beyonce to take home the Album of the Year award, "25," and Record of the Year award, "Hello." The British pop-star also won the Song of the Year award, Best Pop Solo Performance award and Best Pop Vocal Album award.

However, she will likely be best remembered for what she did when accepting the Best Album award.

"I can't possibly accept this award," Adele said, "and I'm very humbled and very grateful and gracious but my life is Beyonce, and the album to me, the Lemonade album, Beyonce, was so monumental, and so well thought out."

She then broke her award into two and gave half to Beyonce.

Sony's Studio The Real Winner?

Behind the scenes, Sony Corp (ADR) (NYSE: SNE)'s Columbia Records gained some spotlight as the record label represents Adele. The record label also represents the late David Bowie, whose "Blackstar" won the the award for Best Rock Song.

Beyonce is also represented by Sony's record label. So regardless if Queen B or Adele took home the top awards, in the most notable categories the company is still the biggest winner.
