"After Michael died, Adele told her partner Simon Konecki that she had to be the one to perform his Grammy tribute. At first his family didn’t want a tribute, she said, but they later came back to the Grammys specifying that they would allow a tribute only if Adele performed it."

Default Adele Tribute

I loved it. It was perfect, it came across to me as a genuine, emotional tribute from a true admirer. In some ways I think it was very George but it was also very Adele. George was an amazing singer-songwriter, who with his voice and lyrics had the ability to move you. Adele also has that talent, which I think in the tribute she demonstrated perfectly. l love the way that Adele showed that even in his upbeat songs that George was revealing about himself, and that he wrote brilliant lyricis. Adele singing 'I miss my baby...' gave me the chills. The pictures of George in the the background made it even more poignant. I still miss you George❤❤

Default Sorry for the difference of opinion but...

I must be alone in this. I don't feel she did him justice, even if her heart was fully in the right place.
I won't comment on her starting over, but she did it with no class by swearing her head off on stage and making it all about her vs the man with a 35 year music career who just died. The American media is only talking about her and how wonderful she is now. I thought it was diva behaviour and she kind of took George's moment. Also when you listen carefully she said " want to get this right for you" (audience) not "him" as she is being misquoted as saying now. The family should have just stuck to not having anyone pay tribute. The us media was never going to give him his due. Adele didn't help matters unfortunately though I know she loved him. And that arrangement was generally horrible except for the last few lyrics.

Stunning performance!!!
I really did not expect Adele to choose Fastlove, but now I see it completely have a scene. Adele turned Fastlove in string ballad to show us true meaning of this song - a man lost his great love and he have no possibility to have nothing but fast-love....

And for American public Fastlove is last GM big hit as I know....

Kinda reminds me of Symphonica a little....which was George's official output...it was heartfelt.

I'm not an Adele fan, but I don't think she was insincere. I don't think it had anything to do with her vs him. I think she was very upset because she also had an issue at last year's performance and I think this tribute was very important to her. If she did say 'you' she may have been talking to George in her mind..

Remember she's also been a fan since she was young.

I do have to say I loved the arrangement personally. It brought out the real meaning beneath the lyrics for me, and being that most Americans watching have never even heard that song, it was an interesting choice, so it's nice that rather than, 'why did she sing a song nobody knows' she was applauded for it.

I'd have much, much rather heard George singing fastlove in a beautiful variation of piano and string arrangement like that, but, sadly we can't now.

P.s. I don't think anyone would've done him justice, really.

The choice of Fastlove, the lyrics, a little swearing, wanting to start over to make it perfect – all so much George

Normally I don't like Adele that much but this was brilliant, very touching, loved that slow version with strings arrangements - thank you Adele!

Once she got going,I thought it was very beautiful and clearly heartfelt. The candid shots of George included in the backing video were very touching featuring his million dollar smile.Starting over on live tv was unusual but it was all the more human rather than being just a slick production number.
