Adele may have opened the 2017 Grammy Awards with a beautiful rendition of Hello, but it was her tribute to George Michael that had everyone talking–she flubbed the showed-down version of “Fastlove” and asked for a re-do like a #Boss. Well that entire performance may have gone a little differently.
According to Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich the original plan was to have Beyoncé, Rihanna, and James Corden included in the performance, but it was soon clear that Adele had a specific vision for the tribute. Adele, Beyonce, Rihanna and James Corden was supposed to each take a verse from a song of a different tempo and era (“Freedom” and “One More Try”) in a huge Michael mash-up Ehrlich told THR. But things changed when he realized “how passionate Adele was,” he added, “and that she had a vision for what she wanted to do with it.
I would have loved to see that version of the tribute, what about you?
