Adele’s Grammy Wins: How Many Awards She’s Won & What For
The 65th Grammy Awards are on Feb. 5, 2023.
Adele has been nominated for multiple awards, including Song, Record, and Album of the Year.
As of 2023, she has a ten-year unbroken winning streak.
Adele is so unstoppable at the Grammy Awards, drag performer Ginger Minj once said -- when portraying the British singer on RuPaul's Drag Race - Adele wouldn't have to sing a song, and she'd "probably win an award for it, anyway." Such is the award show juggernaut Adele has been, with her going on an unbroken winning streak since 2012.

In 2012, Adele won six Grammy Awards in a single night. This isn't the most won by a single person at one show. That would be Michael Jackson, who took home 8 in 1984 for Thriller and "Beat It," and Santana in 2000 for Supernatural and "Smooth."
However, Adele's six-pack of Grammys tied her with Roger Miller, Quincy Jones, Eric Clapton, and Beyonce, who pulled off the feat before her. Since then, engineer Tom Elmhirst, performer Bruno Mars, and songwriter/producer Finneas O'Connell have all done the same, winning six Grammys in a single night.

In 2017, Adele did a clean sweep of her nominations, which saw her take Album of the Year over Beyonce's Lemonade. During Adele's teary acceptance speech, she tried to put the spotlight on Bey. "I can't possibly accept this award. I'm very humbled and very grateful and gracious, but my artist of my life is Beyonce. The Lemonade album was so monumental," she said, saying how Lemonade was so well-thought-out and that it should have won.
"My personal opinion is that Beyonce definitely should have won," Adele told Vogue in 2021. Adele assumed that Lemonade was going to take the award. "I just got this feeling: I f**king won it. I got overwhelmed, with, like, I will have to go and tell her how much her record means to me."
Later, Adele went to Beyonce's dressing room twice to tell her how much Lemonade meant. "I just said to her, like, the way that the Grammys works, and the people who control it at the very, very top -- they don't know what a visual album is," she said. "They don't want to support the way that she's moving things forward with her releases and the things that she's talking about."

Will She Perform At The Grammys?
As of Jan. 31, Adele hasn't been announced for the 2023 Grammys ceremony. That Friday and Saturday (Feb. 3 and 4), she is busy with her Weekends with Adele residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Vegas is a quick trip to Los Angeles's Crypto.com Arena, the site of the 2023 Grammys, and it wouldn't be beyond reason to think she'd perform "Easy On Me" there.
What's Next For Adele?
Adele's rescheduled Vegas residency dates go until the end of March 2023. With her aversion to touring, it's unclear if she'll perform anywhere else in North America or look into establishing residencies overseas. Or, she might get working on the next album that'll sure to win her a half-dozen more Grammys. The future is unwritten for Adele, and she holds the pen.
