Last night, Adele stopped a commemorative performance for the late George Michael mid-song with an f-bomb after realizing that her vocals were off key.
“I know it’s live TV — I’m sorry,” a frazzled Adele told the audience near the beginning of her rendition of Mr. Michael’s “Fastlove,” which had been reimagined as a dirgelike orchestral ballad.
Her subsequent curses were bleeped on the CBS broadcast, but Adele continued to apologize profusely.
“I can’t do it again like last year,” she said, in reference to her iffy performance at the 58th annual Grammy Awards last February, when a technical glitch also compromised her singing. “I’m sorry for swearing and I’m sorry for starting again. Can we please start it again?”
She continued: “I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up for him. I’m sorry. I can’t. I’m sorry for swearing — I’m really sorry. I’m sorry, Ken.” (Ken Ehrlich produces the Grammy Awards telecast.)
