Adele dropped an F-bomb and halted her George Michael tribute during Sunday's Grammy Awards.
Early into her live rendition of "Fastlove," she appeared to suffer technical issues and stopped the performance.
"I know it's live TV, I'm sorry," she interrupted before a series of expletives were then bleeped for viewers watching at home. "I can't do it again like last year. I'm sorry for swearing and sorry for starting again, can we please start it again. I'm sorry, I can't mess this up for you. I'm sorry."
She continued to apologize as the crowd cheered, and she then started the song over. She then performed the emotional rendition as a slideshow of photos of Michael appeared behind her.
Adele's comments were referencing the mic issues with her performance at last year's Grammys, when she performed her dramatic ballad "All I Ask" amid audio issues. Early in the song, Adele's mic briefly cut out and viewers watching at home noticed how the audio appeared to falter throughout her performance.
