Let’s get this out of the way: Adele will go down as one of the greatest voices of her generation – or any generation.

With that said, her rendition of “All I Ask” – off of her latest (and amazing) album 25 – started off strong, but her performance at the Grammy Awards on Monday will not go down as one of her greatest.

Though technical difficulties marred the performance for those watching at home, the Brit’s vocals were what left the live audience questioning if Adele was overworking her powerful pipes.

Halfway through the song, the “Hello” singer – who put on a concert for fans in Los Angeles Friday with barely 24-hours notice – was audibly straining to nail some of the song’s most powerful moments.

Despite the hiccups, any Adele fan would be quick to point out that the 27-year-old still moved the audience of thousands at the Staples Center.

In short: Keep doing what you’re doing, Adele. A little rasp does an album good.
