Listen, if I can cry every time I watch "Monsters, Inc." I think Adele is entitled to shed a few tears over a ruined performance on live television.
At the Grammys on Monday night, Adele took the stage to sing "All I Ask," and almost immediately, the sound went wonky. Adele visited "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Thursday and explained the mishap.
Entertainment Tonight reports Adele told Ellen the sound check went smoothly, but during a transition before the live performance, microphones fell on the piano and messed everything up.
She already tweeted about the incident and her awesome coping mechanism on Monday night, but she admitted to Ellen she also cried the next day. She reportedly said,
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.
So, note to Adele fans: Your backhanded compliments aren't helping! And we all need Adele to be happy because when Adele cries, we all cry, too -- a year later when she writes a song about it.
Adele added tears were going to fall either way, though. She reportedly said,
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.
C'mon, it's Adele! You don't write songs with that much emotion without being a little overly emotional yourself.
Plus, now we can all look forward to her hit single lamenting the sound woes at the Grammys.
