Confirmed: Adele is human like the rest of us.
Adele’s performance at the GRAMMYs while still incredibly moving, sounded slightly off-key. Anything Adele performs that isn’t 100% flawless is analyzed for error, so when audiences were treated to a shaky rendition of 25 song “All I Ask,” we knew something was up. Adele said she “cried pretty much all day” following the performance, but there is some good to come from it… industry insiders predict 25 will top the charts again at No. 1 this week. She explains:
“Sound check was great,” she explained. “Went really well. I was really excited. And then during the changeover, the microphones fell onto the piano strings which is what the guitar noise was.” “Some people thought it was Justin Bieber rehearsing, but it wasn’t him. We’re on great terms. And then it kind of put the whole thing off really. I wanted to turn, I knew what it was because in rehearsal on Saturday they were like we’re going to double mic the piano just in case one doesn’t work. And I knew where the mic was and I wanted to turn around and lift it up, but I froze. But I actually felt like it went well.”
Fortunately, Adele gets redemption – she performed “All I Ask” as well as “When We Were Young” and participated in a hilarious sketch pranking people at Jamba Juice. Watch below:
