And to top it all off, an offstage guitar sound played over the piano and vocal sounds, which complicated things further; leaving her voice lost in the shuffle. In a nutshell, it seems like those in charge of the sound system completely screwed things up.

Yet like a true winner, Adele didn’t let this incident get to her. After everything was said and done, the British songstress took to Twitter to clarify things up, and explained that the piano mics fell onto the piano strings, which caused the guitar sound.

Still, despite all the mishaps, she was (and is) great! You can relive the performance here.
