Was Justin Bieber to blame for Adele’s sound issues at the Grammys?



Poor Adele. She emerged from her cocoon of privacy to blow us away with her live, stripped-down rendition of All I Ask, which instead went horribly wrong — quickly — and stayed that way.

When Adele stepped up to the mic, viewers expected magic. Instead, her sound briefly went out and listeners were treated to random twangs throughout the beginning of her performance.

The Internet blamed Justin Bieber the second he took the stage, guitar in hand, following Adele’s performance. Surely, it must have been the Biebs who ruined everything because he can’t do anything right. Right?

Wrong. It wasn’t The Maple One’s fault.

“The piano mics fell on the piano strings, that’s what the guitar sound was. It made it sound out of tune. S--- happens,” Adele tweeted. “Because of it though … I’m treating myself to an in n out. So maybe it was worth it.”

Still awaiting word on why the 27-year-old couldn’t hit any of the right notes. She looked great, though, so at least there’s that.
