Adele wants you to hear exactly why her 2016 Grammy Awards performance sounded a bit…well, off.

The songstress took to Twitter to spill the details on what really went wrong while she sang "All I Ask" off of her hit album, 25.

"The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that's what the guitar sound was," she explained.

"It made the sound out of tune. S--t happens."

But the live blunder wasn't exactly all bad, really.

Meanwhile, a spokesperson for CBS released the following statement following the singer's live bit.

"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."
