How Many Grammys Does Adele Have? The Answer Really Shouldn't Surprise You
Have you finally picked yourself up off of the floor and wiped your tears away after listening to Adele's hauntingly beautiful new album 25 ? It's totally fine if you're not there yet, because this kind of musical emotional upheaval isn't something you get over. Hey, maybe that's why Adele waited nearly four years between albums: she knows that her fans couldn't emotionally handle it if she released gut-wrenching new music annually. It's not just the fans who can't stop, won't stop obsessing over Adele's tragic love songs and hopeful ballads, though: Grammy voters are clearly just as enthralled by her powerhouse voice as we all are, given how many Grammys Adele has already nabbed.
Though Adele's new album 25 didn't make the cutoff this year for a Grammy nomination — Grammy eligibility dictates that an album must be released between Oct. 1, 2014 and Sept. 30, 2015, and Adele's album came out on Nov. 20, 2015 — I have no doubt that she'll be nominated again when the album is eligible. That's because superstar Adele has already scored a handful of Grammys in her relatively short career — and after listening to basically any song in her wheelhouse, you'll understand why.
So how many Grammys has Adele actually won? Drumroll, please...
As if you needed more proof that this songstress is a total boss, Adele has won a whopping 10 Grammys. She's been nominated for a total of 13, so obviously this girl has some pretty awesome odds. Her most recent Grammy win was at the 56th Annual Grammys in 2014, when she won in the category of Best Song Written For Visual Media, for her song "Skyfall," which was the theme song for the James Bond film of the same name. Though that was the only award she took home that year, at her very first Grammys in 2009 she swept up the Grammy for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for "Chasing Pavements."
While Adele is no longer a new artist, I wouldn't be surprised if she once again nabbed the award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance: "Hello" is a beautiful song, and may be Adele's biggest vocal triumph to date. Of course, pretty much anything song that comes out of Adele's mouth is a triumph, but hopefully this one scores her some awards. We'll just have to wait until next year to find out.
