"Should I sing the right words?" she said, recovering.

Even the biggest superstars can fluff their lines. Just ask Adele.

The British singer had a vacant moment while performing in MEO Arena in Lisbon, Portugal, last week.

"Shit, wrong words," said Adele, as she recovered with a laugh. And her crowd laughed right along with her. "Should I sing the right words? Sorry."

Adele is having the last laugh. She won songwriter of the year last week at the Ivor Novello Awards, and she’s the reigning IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year.

Adele debuted the official video for "Send My Love (To Your New Lover)" at the Billboard Music Awards, where she collected a slew of awards including top artist and top Billboard 200 album for 25.
