Adele gave a heartfelt acceptance speech after 21 was named album of the year, thanking a "rubbish relationship" for inspiration while she took the stage for the final award of the evening. She also sent an adorable message to her mom and laughed when her tears meant she had to wipe her nose mid-speech. Check out the video and see all of our Grammys pictures!

record of the year usually means a single song on an album and (obvs) album of the year is the entire album

Six awards! Sorry fans of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, Nicki Minoj, but when a TRUE artist comes along this is what can happen. They dig down into universal human experience and give us REAL. Adele stood up there, without pyrotechnics, goofy costumes, provocative choreography and, comfortable in her own skin, she made us feel.. Like the rest of country, I love what she did!

Album of the Year is best entire CD and record of the year is best single... I think :0)
