Adele's winning streak continues. On Thursday in London, her #1 hit "Rolling in the Deep" garnered two trophies at the UK's prestigious Ivor Novello awards for songwriters, the BBC News reports.
"Rolling in the Deep" was named the most-played song of 2011 on radio, TV and other outlets, and Adele herself was named Songwriter of the Year for her participation in it. Ironically, in her acceptance speech, Adele said that initially, she didn't think the song was going to amount to much.
Adele's co-writer on the song, Paul Epworth, joined her onstage to accept the award, and according to the BBC, she said, "No offense Paul, I didn't think it was going to do anything, anywhere!"
Adele also said that in making her world-beating album 21, she'd learned a lesson from her debut album 19. "The main thing was the songs weren't as good as my voice, and I took that on board and now I'm winning songwriter of the year," she explained.
Despite her wins, Adele came up empty in two other major categories in which her album and songs were nominated: Best Album, and Best Song Musically and Lyrically.
The Ivor Novello Awards are named after a popular Welsh composer, singer and actor who was famous in the early 20th century, and are voted on by songwriters.
