Adele Deserves a GRAMMY for Slaying Her GRAMMY Performance After Audio Issues

Songstress Adele performed her dramatic ballad "All I Ask" and was plagued by audio issues at the Grammys on Monday night.

After the show, she took to Twitter to address the issue, saying, "S**t happens."

Backed by a pianist, the chart-topping singer was illuminated by a beam light as she belted the notes of the emotional song in a red embellished gown. Bruno Mars, who co-wrote the song, introduced her to the stage.

Early in the song, Adele's mic briefly cut out and viewers watching at home noticed how the audio appeared to falter throughout her performance. CBS also experienced broadcast issues with their live stream during the show.

A CBS spokesperson confirmed to Billboard that there was a five-to-eight second technical issue with the broadcast, adding that it was outside the network's control.

Despite the technical issues, fans still praised the "Hello" singer for her highly anticipated performance — she returned to the Grammys stage for the first time since 2012 — and were quick to blame outside elements, such as Justin Bieber's guitar and her sound team.

"All I Ask" is a track off Adele's third studio album, 25, which made a historic debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 upon its release on Nov. 20, 2015. "Hello" and "When We Were Young" are previous singles released from the album.

The 58th annual Grammy Awards, hosted by LL Cool J, took place at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
