When the camera turned to Adele for her performance at the Grammy Awards, the auditorium went quiet in anticipation. The renowned vocalist had the audience in the palm of her hand, but a mic over the piano apparently didn’t have quite the grip. At least that’s the theory of producer and performer Brian Transeau, who goes professionally by BT.

Adele gave the piano a quick side-eye, and then her own vocal microphone very briefly went silent. While singing live. At the Grammy Awards.

Looks like some “gigs wanted” flyers will be going up at Guitar Center tomorrow morning.

How about her voice? Singers rely on in-ear monitors to hear themselves and the rest of the instruments. Was tonight just a tough night, or thanks to our mixer friend, could Adele not hear herself or the piano?
