Adele's Grammys Performance - Watch Now!

Adele belts out her smash hit, “Rolling in the Deep,” at the 2012 Grammy Awards held at Staples Center on Sunday (February 12) in Los Angeles.

Earlier in the evening, the 23-year-old English songstress received a standing ovation after winning Best Pop Solo Performance for “Someone Like You.”

“I should take my shoes off. I’m too tall for this … I can’t believe I’m getting emotional already,” Adele said during her acceptance speech. “I need to thank my doctors who brought my voice back.”

During the telecast, Adele also picked up the Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Short Form Music Video Awards!

    Can someone PLEASE explain to me what this song is about? I still don’t get it.. I’m not denying Adele’s talent but this was not her best performance. Not to mention this is an old song. She should’ve performed something new.

    She has no voice control what-so-ever.
    Her technique is not only damaging to her voice but it sounds god awful.
    Basically shouting and when she can’t shout anymore she goes to the safe “semi high pitch” instead of belting it out, like I said, safe.
    I always feel uncomfortable watching her sing live because I’m just waiting for her voice to break which it almost always does, not only that but she sings in a very lazy way.
    I will say this though, she writes good songs. These are the type of songs I’d like to hear Jennifer Hudson sing whom I think hasa great voice, the best voice we have today now that Whitney is gone (and no i’m not saying jennifer is the new Whitney but she’s the best we have right now).
    That’s all I have to say about that!

    you can’t be that dense!. it is the Grammy Awards. Rolling in the Deep was nominated for several awards which is why she was singing it. in case you missed it, which you obviously did, all the other performers were singing the songs they were nominated for. as for what the song is about here are the lyrics; trying reading them. even my 14 year old sister understands them.

    Rolling In The Deep”

    There’s a fire starting in my heart
    Reaching a fever pitch, it’s bringing me out the dark
    Finally I can see you crystal clear
    Go ‘head and sell me out and I’ll lay your ship [****] bare
    See how I leave with every piece of you
    Don’t underestimate the things that I will do

    There’s a fire starting in my heart
    Reaching a fever pitch
    And it’s bringing me out the dark

    The scars of your love remind me of us
    They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
    The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
    I can’t help feeling
    We could have it all
    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    Rolling in the deep
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
    You had my heart inside your hand
    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    And you played it, to the beat
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

    Baby, I have no story to be told
    But I’ve heard one on you
    And I’m gonna make your head burn
    Think of me in the depths of your despair
    Make a home down there
    As mine sure won’t be shared

    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    The scars of your love remind me of us
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
    They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
    I can’t help feeling
    We could have had it all
    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    Rolling in the deep
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
    You had my heart inside your hand
    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    And you played it, to the beat
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
    Could have had it all
    Rolling in the deep
    You had my heart inside your hand
    But you played it, with a beating

    Throw your soul through every open door
    Count your blessings to find what you look for
    Turn my sorrow into treasured gold
    You’ll pay me back in kind and reap just what you’ve sown

    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    We could have had it all
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
    We could have had it all
    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    It all, it all, it all
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

    We could have had it all
    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    Rolling in the deep
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
    You had my heart inside your hand
    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    And you played it to the beat
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

    We could have had it all
    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
    Rolling in the deep
    (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
    You had my heart inside of your hand
    (You’re gonna wish you never had met me)

    But you played it
    You played it
    You played it
    You played it to the beat.

    truly a great performance! she deserved every grammy she won. Amazing how she stole the show with her voice, she doesn’t need to put up a show to entertain, she doesn’t need too many dancers on stage or do or wear something shocking.. Her talent is all she needs!

    cari Says:


    Oh pul-leez. She is a much better singer than most of the dreck out there these days that raps, shouts, screams, and does anything for shock value.
    Was this her best live performance–no. She probably was nervous. She was up (and won) for most of the major awards. She just recovered from throat surgery. She was singing in front of some of the finest, most legendary singers and songwriters in music today from McCartney to Springsteen to all of the contemporary singers she was up against. She certain did a lot better than most of them.

    <3<3 LOVE Adele<3<3 She has such a pure beautiful voice and I love all her songs. It's nice to hear someone that doesn't rely on auto tuning or gimmicks to sell albums. Also I think she is beautiful and how a woman should look, not all stick thin like a walking skeleton or carrot stick. Keep making beautiful music Adele but take care of your voice. I loved your interview with 60 minutes tonight before the Grammys. You are an amazing young woman my dear so don't change. It's refreshing to see a young woman wearing modest clothes and not feel they have to prance around stage half naked or in skin tight tacky outfits. We love you Adele<3<3<3<3

    Millie Says:

    Congratulations Adele!!!! – I loved your singing and performance and the clarity of your rich, wonderful voice is still rolling through my head. It was so wonderful to be able to watch you and not the light shows….. sometimes too much strips away the beauty and essence of the artists and does not allow to witness their passions and emotions. You make singing look so easy and effortlessly and you inspire me. I love to sing but have not found the courage to go take singing lessons – my car, home and walking are my outlets. God Bless you in your journey and much light and healing are being sent to you. Humans need to become more mindful to care for hearts with kindness, respect, and gentleness. You will soar to great heights! If you ever tour to Vancouver BC I will absolutely come and see your performance! Namaste

    alex Says:

    She had throat surgery not that long ago. She did amazing for having sung that song LIVE so soon after surgery. Hudson is nowhere NEAR the level of whitney and never will be. Compared to hudsons live performance where she isnt lip singing ( yes all artists have done it at some point or another) adele blew her out of the water. Either way adele and hudsons styles of singing could not be further apart.

    Sean Says:

    I know it’s her 1st time back from surgery but she was real pitchy tonight. Shes sang this song much better live in past performances. Blame the long layoff

    toria Says:


    You obviously don’t know much about the grammys. Although I do think Adele deserved the awards, the Grammys are known for giving awards to “safe” album of the year–mainstream music. And if you look at blacks that have won the Album of the Year–they did so with very mainstream albums (which almost all the winners have had).
    Rap, blues, jazz (which typically have a lot of Black musicians) rarely win any album of the year awards. For God’s sake Toto won in 1983 for their lame album. The album of the year generally isn’t known for being bestowed on the most talented and the best album.

    Michael Jackson – Thriller
    Stevie Wonder – Inner Visions and a second one for Songs in the Key of Life
    Lionel Richie-Can’t Slow Down
    Quincy Jones – Back on the Block
    Natalie Cole – Unforgettable
    Whitney Houston – Bodyguard
    Ray Charles – Genius
    Lauryn Hill – Miseducation
    Herbie Hancock – River

    Cheryl Says:

    Adele is a unique talent and I’m glad to see she’s singing again. Since her vocal hemmorhage, I’m sure she is working on correcting her singing technique, but in this Grammy performance I had to cringe a few times at how she still abuses her voice by forcing. Probably not noticeable to non-singers….but she needs to preserve her gift by treating it right! I hope she finds a way to adjust soon!

  45. 45
    Cheryl Says:

    Adele has done her share of “just screaming” which is basically poor vocal technique. It has contributed to her recent problems. Having said that, she does have a special talent and she has to un- learn some bad vocal habits and learn to work WITH her gift, not against it. She’s a very young singer with a long career ahead of her if she corrects the problem now.

    BHorn Says:

    I really appreciate what a wonderful musician Adele is. She stands alone among all of the other vocalists out their as a true artist. I only worry that during this time of recovery she is going to hurt her voice. The performance last night had much of the Adele power, but it missed all of the subtle nuance of her voice. Adele is a beautiful person, I really hope she is able to regain her ability.

    Roberto Effo Says:

    I’m a 58 yr old dude and as jaded as they come regarding the pop music scene which I find absolutely bereft of talent. I’m extemely impressed with the power of Adele’s soulful voice and her songwriting ability. I’m so glad to see a performer out on stage without all the gimmicks and choreography etc. that only serves as a distraction to cover up the fact so many of these idiots have little or NO talent and need to provide something to keep the audience’s attention. Adele has rightfully earned all the awards and fans she has received and I wish her a long and successful career.

It actually was an absolute frightening circumstance in my position, nevertheless witnessing a new expert strategy you dealt with that took me to cry with contentment. Now i’m happy for your assistance as well as believe you realize what an amazing job you were getting into educating many others by way of a web site. Probably you haven’t met any of us.
