The 28-year-old singer paid tribute to the late George Michael at Sunday's GRAMMY Awards with a powerful rendition of his 1996 song, "Fastlove."

Wearing a black, long sleeve velvet dress and a matching black crystal earring on her left ear, reminiscent of Michael's classic cross earring, Adele hit the stage accompanied by a live string band.
But near the beginning of performance, the "Hello" singer stopped and asked the show's producer to restart the song.
"I know it's live TV. I f*cked up," she said. "I can't do it again like last year. I'm sorry for swearing. Can we please start it again? I'm sorry, I can't mess this up for him."

After regrouping, Adele continued with the heartfelt tribute, but at the end of her performance, it was clear that she was disappointed with the turn of events. 

In an effort to show their support, The Recording Academy took to Twitter to cheer Adele on. "You got this, girl #GRAMMYs ," they wrote in one tweet. 
"We love you, @adele!" they wrote in another post.
