Adele brought her evocative voice to the 2016 Grammy Awards to perform “All I Ask” from her latest album, 25.
With just a piano to back her up and a large light shining behind her, the songstress sung the heart-warming song but unfortunately there were technical difficulties for many viewers watching from home.
“LOOK. Don’t you sit up there and question the flawlessness of Adele Laurie Blue Adkins! We gon blame this on her mic! #GRAMMYs,” tweeted famed blogger, Luvvie. “Adele’s pitch is consistently & historically flawless. FLAWLESS. That was 100% an audio issue & she was fighting hard from go. Hush, ya’ll,” read another tweet from an Adele fan.
Others had different theories on why the crooner had to face the malfunctions. “The ancestors snatched Adele’s vocals cause it’s #BlackHistoryMonth,” read one hilarious tweet. “Adele voice started cracking because she was crying. Y’all not gone do my girl like this. Nope,” read another.
Nonetheless, Adele’s sparkling red floor-length gown shined through in the touching performance of the Bruno Mars co-written song. And she gave us all the feels to boot.
Adele also ended with an unexpected — but not surprising shout out. “I love you Kendrick, you’re amazing!” she said. We hear you Adele. Now, can we get a collaboration?
