Here are five girl-power moments that are still beating in our hearts. 22 year old Meghan Trainor wasn't afraid to show her true feelings after being named Artist of the Year. I struggled a lot with myself with my confidence. As soon as I started being confident with All About the Bass, I knew what I wanted and that I had to keep going. And then I could achieve my goals. When the female fronted band Alabama Shakes, won its Grammy for best rock performance, lead singer Brittany Howard gushed. My heart is beating a mile a minute. Later in the show donning her signature specs and mohawk, Howard proved to the world just how hard girls can rock. [MUSIC] My God, don't cross the line. After powering through a few technical hiccups, Adele delivered the most soul-stirring performance of the night, belting out her ballad All I Ask, she sang to everyone who has ever had a heartbreak.
