Adele Got Too Emotional And Had To Restart Her Tribute To George Michael During Grammys
In case you missed it, the Grammys happened last night which begs the question “who on the BAFTA committee thought it would be a good idea to host their awards on the same night?” We didn’t get an answer to that question but we sort of have to assume that it was “some idiot”.
So yeah, all of the world’s biggest and best-est musicians gathered to watch an event that largely ignores actual good music and sticks with the safe options and, among the obvious winners and the uncontroversial choices, there was a tribute for the late, great George Michael, who passed away on Christmas day.
The tribute was performed by Adele but before she could finish, her emotions got the better of her and she cut off her own performance…
Performing the 1996 track Fastlove, Adele stopped and said:
“I know it’s live TV … I’m sorry for swearing, and I’m sorry for starting again. I can’t do it like I did it last year.”
I commend @Adele for starting over and making it right! Very very good.

I love @Adele

She went on to win Best Song Of The Year for Hello (because of course she did) and once again apologised for swearing.
