The singer, 24, took home an award for her James Bond title song, “Skyfall” – and delivered what may be the best speech of the evening.
“Oh my God, oh my God, oh my God,” Adele began as she took the stage. “Honestly I came for a night out – with my friend Ayda – we’re new mums. I was not expecting this. Thank you so much,” she said.
“Very strange to be here, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your world for a night, it’s amazing – and we’ve been pissing ourselves laughing!” she said.
“I’d like to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press, I never thought I’d say that. And this is for my boyfriend who convinced me to do it … and my lovely son. Thank you so much,” she said, exiting the stage.
