The Reason Adele Stopped Mid-Grammy Performance Will Make You Ugly Cry
Adele and the Grammys don’t exactly have a perfect track record. Last year, a mic fell into the piano during her performance, which caused some serious technical difficulties. But Adele isn’t one to stay knocked down after a fall. Tonight, she opened the show with a flawless rendition of “Hello” and then returned for a second time to pay tribute to George Michael by singing a cover of his song “Fastlove.” But all didn’t go according to plan…
Adele stopped mid-performance after she missed a note. She told the audience, “I know it’s live TV […] I can’t do it again like last year. I’m sorry for swearing and I’m sorry for starting again. Can we please start it again? I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up for him [George Michael]? I’m sorry, I can’t.”

And just like that, she took it from the top and utterly nailed the whole thing. Major kudos to Adele for tackling the whole thing like a total boss and being so dedicated to doing George justice. Mariah Carey might want to take note on how to handle an on-stage mess up. Just sayin’…
