We’re about 24 hours away from the upcoming 2016 Grammy Awards, but the festivities are well under way for music’s biggest night. Over the weekend, Adele treated fans at L.A.’s Wiltern Theatre to a performance that included some of her latest material.

She crushed it with 25’s “I Miss You,” performed “Send My Love (To Your New Lover)” for just the second time so far and “All I Ask.” Interestingly enough, the singer also informed the audience that was was in not agreement with the promoters about the evening’s ticket prices.

“Did any of you pay more than $50 for any of these tickets?, she asked the crowd. They were all saying ‘Oh let’s do $150 a ticket, oh yeah! So and so said that…’ I said $50.” Adele then admitted she would have charged even less but “my record label is paying for this.”
