Santana had been quoted as saying that Adele beat Beyonce at the Grammys because can "sing, sing".
Guitar legend Carlos Santana has sought to clarify his comments about Beyonce’s defeat to Adele at last weekend’s Grammy Awards, saying that his remark that Bey was “not a singer” was “regretfully taken out of context”.
In an interview with the Australian Associated Press earlier this week, the 69 year old guitarist was asked about his thoughts on Adele’s controversial victories over Beyonce in several of the top categories at Sunday’s Grammys.

Rihanna chose the moment that Bey's name was read out for Best Urban Contemporary Album to apply some lip gloss. Shade?
In amid the annual music industry bunfight that is the Grammy Awards last night, social media went wild after a few eagle-eyed viewers thought Rihanna shaded Beyonce as she lost out to her for Best Urban Contemporary Album award by disinterestedly applying lip gloss as Bey’s name was read out.
Surprising, as they’re both among the most loved female pop stars in the world at this moment in time and not normally associated with petty spats with other celebs.

The artist landed three gongs at last night's ceremony.
Chance the Rapper seemed blind-sided by his triple victory at the 59th annual Grammy Awards over the weekend, especially with it being his first venture into the prestigious ceremony. Nonetheless, he made sure the audience knew that the win was one of his team and one of his faith.
Chance The Rapper is now a three-time Grammy winner
The hip hop star added three Grammys to his growing list of awards last night (February 12th 2017) including Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance for his song 'No Problem' featuring Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz and Best Rap Album for 'Coloring Book'.

'Blackstar' swept the floor with five awards.
After releasing his last album 'Blackstar' in January 2016, and therefore too late to make an impact on the subsequent Grammy Awards, David Bowie is revisited more than a year after his death to smash through this year's music celebrations with a total of five posthumous awards.
David Bowie wins five Grammy Awards
The rock pioneer's number one album landed him Best Alternative Music Album, Best Recording Package and Best Engineered Album at the 59th annual Grammy Awards last night (February 12th 2017), with the title track also winning Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song.

Young girls heed the singer's advice from last year's show.

Taylor Swift speech inspires empowering 2017 Grammy video
Entitled 'It Was You', the short promo features dancers, instrumentalists, a basketball player, an aspiring astronaut, a David Bowie fan and even an orchestra conductor all speaking the wisdom of the 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever' singer (who actually didn't receive a Grammy nomination this year, which is a first since 2011).
It'll be the first time the Robots have performed live since the 2014 Grammys, and will surely fuel more speculation that Daft Punk are planning a 2017 world tour.
The robotic duo teamed up with the Canadian singer for his recently released album Starboy, performing with him on the title track as well as ‘I Feel It Coming’. On Tuesday (January 31st), the Recording Academy announced that they’ll be joining forces again to render those songs live at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on February 12th, alongside other confirmed performers Adele, Bruno Mars and Metallica.

Her relatives are not happy that she was overlooked.
This year's 'In Memoriam' segment of the Grammy Awards was a particularly emotional one this year, as tributes were held for some of the biggest legends of the music industry including David Bowie, Maurice White and Lemmy Kilmister. However, the family of Natalie Cole have expressed their outrage at this singer's under-representation.
Natalie Cole only got a brief mention at the 2016 Grammys
Cole died of heart failure at the age of 65 on New Year's Eve after a successful R&B career following in the footsteps of her father Nat King Cole. She's the recipient of nine Grammy awards and a number of lifetime achievement awards with 6 number one albums and a number of R&B hits under her belt. But despite this, her recognition at the 2016 Grammys was minimal to say the least with just a short clip of her song 'Unforgettable' shown at the event.
