"I'm sorry, I can't mess this up for him"
Adele stopped and swore mid-performance as she was trying to give a beautiful tribute to the late George Michael.
Less than a minute into singing 'Fast Love', Adele swore and stopped the music.
"I'm sorry I f**ked up and I'm sorry for swearing but I've got to stop," she told the crowd.
"I can’t do it like I did it last year," referencing her 2016 Grammys performance of 'All I Ask' in which her audio had similar technical issues.
She then restarted as the audience cheered and encourage to begin again.
The performance was her second appearance of the night, having opened the Grammys performing her hit song 'Hello'.
