And my cold has gotten the better of me.," a stuffy sounding Adele is heard explaining in the video.

"I'm so sorry to let you down. I know lots of people would be flying in, from all over. It's the last thing I want to do, but I have to look after myself because I've got so many more shows to do," she continued.

"I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don't really -- I can't dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I said no," she said to a crowd at the Staples Center. "I'll put out a dance album next time. Maybe I'll do it then."
