Adele is dealing with some medical woes, and will be going on vocal rest as a result.

The "Rolling in the Deep" songstress admitted she wasn't her best self during one of her recent Las Vegas residency shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, telling that audience that her voice was a bit off and her chest was "on fire," according to DailyMail.

"In the middle of last night—I'm sure you can hear it in my talking voice and my singing voice a little bit—your girl was tired. I didn't sleep very well... and Ursula from the ocean has come from my chest tonight. I can't hit my headnotes properly. I didn't sleep very well and my chest is on fire..." she addressed the crowd while on stage.

Still, she didn't completely give up, though, pressing on through her discomfort, and confirming that the audience's positive energy helped her mood.

"Straight after this show I am going on voice rest," she then declared, further joking, "Can you imagine how hard now me not talking for three days is?"

The 35-year-old added, "So I'm going to be in bed coughing my guts up on complete voice rest," before sending the audience a heartfelt message: "You've been amazing. The show. Thank you, thank love, magical, magical, all putting it together from the moment out. I'm so glad you had a good time. I look crazy, I feel crazy… I'm going to go on voice rest."

The "Someone Like You" singer has dealt with throat polyps in the past, undergoing vocal cord surgery to help alleviate recurrent hemorrhaging in 2011. She also has previously had to cancel shows due to concerns with her voice.

Adele still has 20 residency shows remaining before heading off to Munich for concerts planned over the summer, so we're sending well wishes her way for a speedy recovery!
