KUSA - Wow.
Adele is used to bringing down the house with her amazing voice and her powerful performances.
During the 59th Grammy Awards Sunday night, Adele did something rarely seen.
She messed up. Then she swore. Then she apologized for swearing, stopped the song, and insisted on restarting the tribute to George Michael, "Fast Love."
She said, "I can't mess this up for him."
And since Adele is well, Adele, the orchestra and production crew acquiesced her request and the song began again.
Naturally, Twitter had a lot to say about the moment.
Only Adele can get away with restarting mid song, swearing, and still kill it in the end.— Eric Lambert (@ericthefall) February 13, 2017
My heart was in my throat the entire time! @Adele - making it right and giving her best. Although she seemed upset after- but she was great!— Joahnna Cruz (@joahnna_cruz) February 13, 2017
Grammys Best moment-Adele starting in wrong key & asking to start tribute to George Michael over. "I can't mess this up for him" #respect— North (@north021884) February 13, 2017
Adele's tribute to George Michael was the most raw, emotional performance. A new favorite #GRAMMYs moment for sure.— Stacy (@rdwnggrl) February 13, 2017
But, we think she still owned it, despite a tearful ending to the song and an emotional standing ovation from the audience.
What do you think?
