Everyone loves Adele, right?

That seems to have been one Michigan man’s hope when he serenaded a judge and courtroom with an apology inspired by the hit maker’s “Hello.”

21-year-old Brian Earl Taylor, who faces up to 17 years in prison after being charged for unlawful imprisonment and carrying a concealed weapon, sang to the court last week just before the judge sentenced him, the Ann Arbor News reports.

“Hello there, your honor,” Taylor sang. “I want to say I’m sorry for the things I’ve done and I’ll try and be stronger in this life I chose, but I want you to know – that door, I close. And your honor I’m sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry.’

Although Taylor did not receive his sentence in the video, the judge reportedly said that he was “obviously a talented young man.”
