the 27 year old singer faced a sound glitch which threw her off her game during her performance of All I Ask from her album 25.

She was accompanied by a piano during the song but the audio appeared to have a random guitar sound at one point.

A spokesperson for CBS, where the Grammys aired, said "there was a brief 5-8 second technical issue that was out of our control."

Adele took to Twitter to explain: "The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that's what the guitar sound was. It made it sound out of tune. Shit happens. X"

She added, "Because of it though... I'm treating myself to an in n out. So maybe it was worth it."

Another tweeter quipped, "The blood on Alice Cooper’s shirt actually belongs to the guy who was doing Adele’s sound."
