Adele’s ‘Hello’ Wins Song Of The Year at the 2017 Grammy Awards
Adele‘s mega-hit “Hello” won Song Of The Year at the 2017 Grammy Awards on Sunday night (Feb. 12). It was her third win of the evening after taking she was awarded the honors of Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance.
Adele and Greg Kurstin accepted the award on stage, to which Adele began her acceptance speech by apologizing for swearing during her tribute to George Michael. The ceremony cut Greg Kurstin short as he took to the mic to deliver his speech, a move which erupted boos from the crowd who felt that Kurstin should have been given a chance to give his thanks.
