Tonight at the 2017 Grammys, Adele was set to deliver a tribute to the late music icon George Michael with a performance of his song “Fast Love.” Something seemed off with either the timing or Adele’s voice. As pictures of George Michael flashed on the screen, with a full orchestra accompanying Adele, she abruptly stopped the performance with a few curse words. Adele apologized and said that she couldn’t mess this up for George Michael. She pleaded with the audience to start the performance over again and they responded with cheers and smiles.
Adele ended up killing her new rendition of George Michael’s “Fast Love,” but at the end of the performance, her eyes filled with tears and she was visibly disappointed. In the audience, fellow artists, like Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna, appeared to sympathize and feel sorry for the talented singer.
