On Monday, February 15, while performing All I Ask at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards, Adele struggled with mic problems throughout and ended up getting into an upsetting situation.

“Sound check was great on that day. Went really well. I was really excited, and then during the changeover the microphones fell onto the piano strings which is what the guitar noise was. Some people thought it was Bieber rehearsing, but it wasn’t him.

We’re on great terms. And then it kind of put the whole thing off really,” she recalled. She further added, “I heard it straight away.

And I knew where the mic was and I wanted to turn around and lift it up, but I froze. When I’m flat and I’m sharp I’m just emotional but it was fine. I wanted to tell everyone straight away because it seemed to be a lot of confusion about what it was. I was embarrassed.”
