Adele Grammys Performance

There is no doubt that Adele’s performance at last night’s Grammys was one of the most anticipated live performances of the night. Unfortunately, not everything went as planned- leaving everyone to ask what really happened?

Adele Grammys Performance: What Happened?

While the award-winning singer was performing the hit ballad “All I Ask,” there seemed to be multiple audio glitches, which of course didn’t help Adele hit her signature high notes as she visibly struggled to stay on key.

According to Variety, Recording Academy president Neil Portnow addressed the audio issue after the show.

Apparently, when crews were lifting the piano onto the stage, a microphone fell onto the piano strings which was the main the cause behind the audio glitches during last night’s live streaming of Adele’s performance.

“To Adele’s credit, she killed it, she did a fantastic job, the pro that she is,” Portnow said. “That was all an issue on our behalf. Kenny (Ehrlich) asked that we make that really clear to everybody.”

Adele took to her personal Twitter page to address the unfortunate technological glitch during her performance, saying things happen- but there was still a silver lining.

“The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that’s what the guitar sound was. It made it sound out of tune. Shit happens. X,” the star dished to her millions of followers.

“Because of it though… I’m treating myself to an in n out. So maybe it was worth it,” she added.

After a performance like that, she deserved every bite of that delicious meal! What are your thoughts on the Adele Grammys Performance?
