Singer-songwriter Adele is known for her perfect pitch and thrilling performances, and that’s exactly what millions of viewers expected when they tuned into the 58th Grammys award show Monday night.
But shortly after the megastar took the stage to sing “All I Ask,” it was clear that something was off. Adele’s first performance in four years was disrupted by sound problems.
"The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that's what the guitar sound was. It made it sound out of tune," the singer tweeted after the show. "S*** happens.”
But the 27-year-old artist was not about to let one soundperson’s incompetence ruin her evening. Because of the audio blunder, Adele treated herself to a West Coast delicacy: In-N-Out Burger.
"So maybe it was worth it," she wrote.
