We were shocked when Adele asked to restart her George Michael tribute song at the Grammys on Sunday. Our shock has continued two days later as new details have emerged surrounding the performance.
Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich revealed in a new interview that the George Michael tribute was supposed to feature some more big stars. At one point the tribute was set to include Adele’s idol Beyonce along with Rihanna and James Corden! But it sounds like it was Adele that pulled the plug on the collaboration. Ken explained QUOTE, “She had a vision for what she wanted to do with it.”
Adele’s passion for honoring George seems to be what prompted her to ask to restart her version of “Fastlove”. Backstage after the show Adele admitted the audio issues left her completely rattled saying, “I was devastated by that. I had a bit of a shaky rehearsal today, but I was working really hard on this tribute for a month.” Despite stopping mid-song during the live show, the singer received a standing ovation for the performance.
Adele also revealed backstage that her admiration for George Michael stemmed from an early age. She recalls listening to “Fastlove” when she was about 10 years old and said quote, “I found him to be one of the truest icons”. Adele was so shaken by George’s passing that she was determined to be part of his tribute.
