“I heard it straight away,” she said when the mic fell. “I knew what it was because in rehearsal that Saturday they said we’re going to double mic the piano just in case one of them doesn’t work. I knew where the mic was and I wanted to turn around and lift it up but I froze.”

The “Rolling In The Deep” vocalist also shared how she felt emotionally about the occurrence. “I cried pretty much all day yesterday,” she revealed. “In fairness I would’ve cried if it went really well as well. If it would’ve been a standout performance I would’ve cried as well.”
