Sunday’s Grammys provided George Michael the rousing tribute he deserved, featuring Adele knocking out a rendition of his “Fast Love.” But not before incredulously requesting to start over—and dropping an F-bomb on air.

“Can we please start it again? I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up for him,” said the exasperated singer, before confidently launching into a strong second effort.

This is the second year in a row that Adele suffered from performance issues. In last year’s show, a piano malfunction dampened her rendition of “All I Ask.”

Following her restart, Twitter blew up, amazed at her gumption and applauding her efforts to do Michael’s hit song justice.
