Adele nailed her first performance at the 2017 Grammy Awards, but when she hopped on stage for round two (a tribute to the late George Michael), a less than pitch-perfect start forced her to begin again.

The talented singer was visibly upset when she asked the sound engineers and musicians to stop the song, saying "I can't do it—I'm sorry for swearing and I'm sorry for starting again. Can we please start again? I'm sorry, I can't mess this up for him."

Adele slayed round two, but cried as the audience applauded.

Fortunately, she had a lot of support from fellow celebs.

We ❤️ you, Adele.
