Cape Town - Adele made what should have been her triumphant return to the Grammys, but the mega-selling singer's performance proved a disappointment to TV viewers when it was plagued by sound problems.

Social media exploded with complaints about the quality, with some posters saying Adele looked distracted by her onstage monitor.

A CBS spokesperson confirmed there was a five-to-eight second technical issue with the broadcast, adding without elaboration that it was outside the network's control.

Inside the Staples Centre, the Grammy audience gave Adele a standing ovation.

Adele responded to the drama afterwards tweeting: 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.”

Don’t worry, Adele. We still love you, bae. x
