The 'Rolling In The Deep' singer says her album was inspired by something "everyone's been through".

Adele gave an emotional acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards last night in Los Angeles while accepting the prestigious Album of the Year award.

The 'Someone Like You' singer picked up all six awards she was nominated for during yesterday's ceremony (12th February), including Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Album of the Year for her 2011 sophomore release '21'.

Adele started by thanking Columbia Record producer Rick Rubin for his help working on the record, claiming he had made her realize things she didn't think she could. 

"This record is inspired by something that is really normal and everyone's been through it, just a rubbish relationship," Adele said in her acceptance speech. "It's gone on to do things that, I can't tell you how I feel about it."

She added: "It's been the most life-changing year."

Adele also made her live comeback at the Grammys, following vocal chord surgery back in November 2011, when she gave a performance of her Vodafone Big Top 40 hit 'Rolling In the Deep'.
