Adele admitted to getting incredibly emotional over the sound problems she experienced at the Grammys during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres” show Thursday.
“I wanted to tell everyone straight away because it seemed to be a lot of confusion about what it was. I was so embarrassed,” she 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.'”
The “Hello” singer had previously tweeted that the issue was caused by a microphone falling onto the strings of the piano that was accompanying her performance.
“I heard it straight away. And I wanted to turn, I knew what it was because in rehearsal on Saturday they were like we’re going to double mic the piano just in case one doesn’t work,” Adele explained. “And I knew where the mic was and I wanted to turn around and lift it up, but I froze.”
Despite telling her Twitter followers that “shit happens” after getting off stage, the singer admitted to DeGeneres that she “cried pretty much all day” on Monday.
“In fairness, I would have cried if it went really well, as well,” she said. “If it was a stand out performance I would have cried, as well. I always cry.”
Later, Adele went to the Jamba Juice on the Warner Bros. lot with a receiver tucked into her ear. DeGeneres fed her lines to make things difficult for the employees, who seemed more than happy to oblige any outlandish demands she made.
