LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Partway through a performance to pay tribute to George Michael during Sunday’s GRAMMY Awards, Adele stopped singing, swore and asked if she could restart the song.

I’m sorry for swearing and I’m sorry for starting again,” the “Hello” singer said, “I can’t mess this up for him.”

As the crowd cheered, Adele started the number again.

Twitter users responded with their support for the singer, who was visibly upset.
