There’s one thing you don’t do, and that’s mess with Queen Adele! The singer was clearly disappointed and her fans were furious when the Grammy Awards experienced sound issues during Adele’s otherwise incredible performance. Click through to see the angry tweets!
Listen, Adele, 27, is an international treasure, and you are not allowed to do anything wrong by her! The audience at the 2016 Grammy Awards on Feb. 15 knew that something was seriously wrong when Adele took the stage to perform “All I Ask,” and something just didn’t sound…right. Obviously, it wasn’t Adele’s voice! Click through to see Adele’s response and her fans’ furious tweets!
We’re fearing for the life of the poor sound tech at The Grammys whose mistake led to a major mishap during Adele’s otherwise beautiful performance. The stage was set, Adele and a companion on piano took to the small, circular stage in the middle of the audience to perform a simple, but soulful rendition of her new song “All I Ask.” Draped in red glitter and shrouded by fog, Adele was perfect. Except…that piano was seriously out of tune. And it was definitely noticeable. Then the sound went out completely!
Adele shared some light on the situation in a tweet saying, “The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that’s what the guitar sound was. It made it sound out of tune. Shit happens. X”. She showed that she was not going to let it ruin her night though tweeting, “Because of it though… I’m treating myself to an in n out. So maybe it was worth it.” Ha, way to go Adele! Unfortunately her fans were not so forgiving!

Yeah, Adele’s fans are not feeling very forgiving right now! Some mistakenly believed that there was a guitar in the mix somewhere that was making this whole mess. The fact that nobody was even playing a guitar makes this so much worse. The sound issues were seriously unfortunate, because not only did the audience not get the full performance, but you could tell that Adele knew that something was wrong, too.
She doesn’t need to feel bad in the least, though. Despite the shaky sound quality, Adele’s performance was glorious. Just a girl, her microphone and her killer voice. What else do you need to dominate The Grammys? Her fans’ outrage is sweet, but they should know that nothing’s going to bring her down!
