Adele's George Michael Tribute Video at the 2017 Grammys

Adele Stops and Restarts Her George Michael Tribute at the Grammys After Technical Issues

The sudden, tragic loss of George Michael in December is still weighing heavy on the shoulders of many, and the Grammys made sure to honor his incredible legacy on Sunday night with a musical tribute from Adele. The singer, who kicked off the night with a performance of "Hello," launched into a moving rendition of Michael's song "Fastlove." After singing a few notes, she cursed and paused the performance, referencing the technical issues she experienced last year. "I'm sorry, I can't mess this up for him," she told the audience, before restarting the haunting tune and leaving everyone teary-eyed. We have a feeling Michael would wholeheartedly approve.
