With six awards, Adele has matched Beyonce for most Grammy wins in a night by a female act.
Adele's six wins Sunday night include album, record and song of the year. Beyonce set the record two years ago.
Adele was shaking as she won album of the year, almost in tears as she held the award.
Adele's "21" was 2011's best-selling album. It's sold more than six million units in the United States.
She yelled at the end of her speech: "Thank you so much!"
