The Internet was aghast on Monday night when image of perfection, Adele, delivered a subpar performanceduring the Grammys, proving once and for all that she's truly human, just like us.

After the ceremony, the "All I Ask" singer took to Twitter to explain the sound issues -- including the apparent flatness -- that plagued the performance.

"The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that's what the guitar sound was. It made it sound out of tune. Sh-- happens," Adele wrote.
