    Nothing wrong with that. (Your video at least.- I haven't watched the others.) Why?

    Sometimes we mess up and need to start again. Anyone who speaks and/or sings to thousands and thousands of people (live) have my respect.

    Adele is the only reason I recorded that awards show - fast forwarded through pretty much all of it except her, Bruno Mars and one other act (forget what it was). She was honest enough to admit she was off on the wrong key - and stole the show.

    I watched enough of the talk to shake my head at the arrogance of "stars" who think their entertainment stage is the place for political rants. Beyonce's performance was so theatrical and pretentious - including the speech she gave - I was bored in 30 seconds so fast forwarded. It's a shame as she has a great voice and she's gorgeous but the preggers drama was a bit much.

    I don't usually watch award shows but the 15 minutes or so I watched felt overly staged. Maybe that's normal.

      When actors and singers give political speeches on awards shows, I have to ask myself why they do it.

      Are they thinking that people will see them as more socially aware? Are they afraid to disappoint their fans? Are they really that politically involved?

      Then I think about their audience. Movie goers/music fans aren't all liberals. It would seem that these speeches would hurt ticket sales. But maybe the actors/singers know their core audiences more than we do, and are pandering to them, solidifying their base.

      And maybe it's to get more air time (on cable news shows, reporting on the awards show).

      I didn't watch the show, I assume the political speeches were all with a liberal bent.

      I wonder if they are conservative or liberal speeches on a country western music awards show?

    Wow! That was wretched!!

    I doubt even auto-tune, could save that "performance".

    I miss the days when entertainers could give a live performance and deliver the goods.

    Wow. I just watched the video for the first timer. It really was terrible.

      I just watched it for the first time too. Yes, it was a train wreck - but to be fair, after she restarted the result was pretty impressive. There's no doubting she has a great voice.

    The most emotional song I've seen performed for a long time was by Kelly Clarkson who broke down near the end of the song...I was crying with her because the song was so "connected".


    I admire both Clarkson and Adele - great talents who aren't trying to look like or be like anyone else. Both of them are all about the music.

    All these award ceremonies are nothing but opportunities for self aggrandizement for most of these pompous celebs...

    Get up receive your award thank a few people and get off the stage!

    So someone like her takes advantage of it.
    To be clear - Adele did not make a political statement - the ones who did aren't up to her level of talent. The cameras showed the audience and a few eye rolls at the comments....
