Adele ‘cried all day’ after technical problems marred Grammys performance

Singer experienced technical difficulties while singing '25' track 'All I Ask'

Adele has admitted that she was reduced to tears after experiencing technical difficulties during her performance at the Grammy Awards earlier this week (January 15).

The British singer performed her ’25’ track ‘All I Ask’ on Monday night, previously saying that she sounded “out of tune”.

Adele has appeared on US TV’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show, expressing her disappointment. She said: “Sound check was great, it went really well. I was really excited and then during the change over in the ad break a microphone fell onto the piano strings, which is what the guitar noise was. Some people thought it was Bieber rehearsing, but it wasn’t him. It kind of put the whole thing off really.”

The singer continued to say that she realised the problem “straight away… I knew what it was and I knew where the mic was and I wanted to turn around and lift it up but I froze.”

She then joked: “I’m always a bit pitchy anyway. It’s emotion. But it was fine, whatever. I cried pretty much the whole day but in fairness, I would have cried if it had gone really well as well”.

“I always cry but yesterday I kept spontaneously bursting into tears. But it wasn’t so bad. I treated myself to a burger and a beer.”
