It's been four long years since we've heard Adele perform on the Grammys stage, but she made the worth wait it on Monday night.

The 10-time Grammy winner -- who had the biggest album of 2015 with her smash record 25 -- opted to sing the ballad "All I Ask" rather than the ubiquitous radio single "Hello."

Despite some audio issues early on in the song, Adele's powerhouse voice carried the unforgettable Grammys moment. Standing in front of a piano on the circular stage in the Staples Center, the lights were dimmed, but Adele's vocals shined despite those pesky technical problems.
