Adele put The Grammys performance to halt then restarts her tribute performance for George Michael.
The singer, who was in the middle of performing Michael’s 1996 song “Fastlove,” paused and, with a look of sorrow on her face, cursed and said, “I’m sorry for swearing and I’m sorry for starting again. Can we please start again?”
Adele got just a few seconds into “Fast Love” when she stopped singing and asked the band to start all over.

It’s unclear exactly what happened but the second time around was flawless.
When the performance was over, the Grammy winner put her hands over her face the moment the lights went down and shook her head.
The crowd in the arena was with her the whole way, cheering her on as she powered through her second take.
