“Tears On My Double-Double” is my favorite Adele song that never was.
The morning after the Grammys, a few piano mics were burned and their ashes were dumped in a landfill. Their family members didn’t even get to have a proper burial, because they brought shame upon this world by screwing up Adele’s Grammys performance. Adele’s performance was filled with sound mess-ups and pitchiness. She said on Twitter that it all went to shit after mics fell onto the piano strings. Adele took herself to In-N-Out afterward, because nothing eases the hurt like sticking your tongue between the soft buns of a Double-Double.
The third greatest singer in the universe (after Celine Dion and Icy Spicy Leoncie, of course) went on Ellen (the episode airs today) and talked about the glitch heard around the planet. Adele blamed it on the mic drop (and not a good kind of mic drop) and said that when that happened, she knew her performance was doomed. Adele also said she was pitchy, but she’s usually always pitchy. She cried about it afterward, but said that she would’ve cried even if it was an amazing performance. Adele is a cry-inducing crier! The video of Adele talking about her Grammy woes to Ellen DeGeneres is after the cut.
You know, if you muted that video and transported them to a low-lit office, I would think it was a session between a psychologist and her patient who were both going to separate funerals afterward. And no, neither of them are going to the funeral of the fallen piano mics, because those incompetent performance ruiners don’t deserve a funeral!
Adele also did a redo performance of “All I Ask” on Ellen.
My doctor’s office plays music in the waiting and in some of the exam rooms, for some reason, so I’ve been waiting for the moment when an Adele song comes on. Adele’s music is a doctor’s office’s dream. An Adele song will probably float out of the speakers while my doctor is checking my huevos. That’s my nightmare, because how am I going to cough when a ball of raw emotion is sitting in my throat from listening to an Adele song?!
