Adele cried literally for 24 hours, after her embarrassing GRAMMYs performance. As you know, the 27-year-old had sound issues that made for a not so great performance Sunday night. This week, she sat down with Ellen DeGeneres recalling the situation,
Sound check was great — 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 [Justin] Bieber rehearsing, but it wasn’t him. We’re on great terms. And then it kind of put the whole thing off really.
I knew where the mic was and I wanted to turn around and lift it up, but I froze.
Adele also commented on some of the criticism she received about being pitchy during her performance,
I’m always a bit pitchy anyways … I am! It’s emotion. When I’m flat and I’m sharp, I’m just emotional, but it was fine.
On how she felt the following day, she says:
I woke up the next morning to people in England being like, ‘We still love you! Don’t worry!’ And I was like, ‘I didn’t ask you if you still loved me, but thanks. I was so embarrassed. I cried pretty much all day yesterday. In fairness, I would have cried if it went really well as well. If it was a standout performance, I would have cried as well. I always cry! I kept spontaneously bursting into tears yesterday.
