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.

Singer-songwriter Joy Villa chose to get political on the red carpet with a red, white and blue, bedazzled "Make America Great Again" dress. To those unfamiliar with the campaign slogan, the back of Villa's dress makes it quite clear, with bold letters spelling out the name of the man who helped coin the MAGA slogan,  "Trump."

On her Instagram the artist photographed her heart-shaped, clutch with the caption:

"My whole artistic platform is about LOVE! I couldn't be where I am today without the love and tenderness of those beautiful supporters and friends around me. Thank you I hope you enjoy tonight's @grammysawards2017 and remember to forget your problems and focus on your future! You are infinite and beautiful and no one can stop you but you. So go out and celebrate yourself as a winner no matter what, together with those you adore!"

Whether her fans or friends are picking up on the above message remains to be seen. For now her comments are filled mostly with unhappy folks accusing the artist of trying to get another 15 minutes of fame.
