Adele ended her night at the 2017 Grammy Awards with back-to-back wins for album of the year and record of the year, but used her final moments on stage to salute Beyoncé and her "monumental" album "Lemonade." Beyoncé, meanwhile, wowed the audience with a spiritual performance and also took home the prize for urban contemporary album. Chance the Rapper was also among the top winners of the night, taking the prize for new artist as well as rap album.

Grammy-nominee Chris James arrived to the 59th Grammy Awards wearing a tribute to the late-great rocker Prince in the form of a slender, purple silk armband.

James was nominated for engineered album non-classical for Prince's final album, "HITNRUN: Phase 2." He lost the award, which was announced during the pre-show telecast, to another late-great legend, David Bowie. 

With that out of the way, James is just relaxing and feeling good to be at the Grammys, representing an artist he loves and an album he is incredibly proud of.

"Now that we're here it's just a party and celebration," he says.
