George Michael honoured at the GRAMMYs
James Corden welcomed Adele on stage to perform and described George Michael's music saying "In times of joy and sorrow, his music was a partner and a friend".
Corden added: "George was an artist like no other. A true original. One of the finest male vocalists of his generation".
Adele was again plagued by problems and had to restart her performance saying "I can't mess this up for him", noticeably fighting back tears she apologised for swearing and asked to start again.
The singer had technical problems during her Grammys performance last year.
The Recording Academy were right behind her, tweeting their support:
Adele had specifically asked the Academy if she could perform the 1990's hit as a tribute to George Michael.
Later she received the award for 'Song of the Year' for 'Hello' and took the opportunity to apologise again, for swearing during her performance (though I honestly don't think anybody cares!).
Adele also took home four other awards, including Record of the Year and Album of the Year.
