In the wake of Michael’s passing, many musicians have paid tribute to the late legend, including performances by longtime friend Elton John, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and an unforgettable performance by close friend Adele, at the 2017 Grammys. Adele’s tribute performance gained traction following her request for the show to restart her cover of Fastlove since she was too choked up to sing correctly, in which she stated “I’m sorry. I can’t mess this up for him.”
