Adele, who had trouble with her live performance at last year’s Grammys, restarted her tribute to George Michael on Monday at the Grammy Awards, telling the audience: “I can’t mess this up for him.”

She stopped and used an expletive after singing some of a new arrangement of Michael’s Fastlove, as videos and photos of Michael played in the background. She re-sang the song and earned applause and support from the crowd at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, though Adele was teary eyed.

At last year’s show, the British singer had a hiccup after a microphone inside a piano fell onto the instrument’s strings.

However, she won the heart of Twitter appreciated seeing her owning up to her mistakes and gave her a lot of love:

She was still a big winner with best pop vocal album and pop solo performance, and she and could win even more awards later in the show.

A tribute for Prince by Bruno Mars and The Time will happen later in the show.

Until Adele’s restart, Beyonce was the talk of the show. In glittery gown, gilded crown and gold choker, a pregnant Beyonce took the Grammy stage Sunday in a lengthy performance of two songs from her critically acclaimed album “Lemonade.” She was introduced by her mother and former stylist, Tina Knowles: “Ladies and gentlemen, with my mother’s pride, my daughter, Beyonce.”
