After opening with "Hello," Adele addressed the audience and said, “I’d like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando, and at Pulse nightclub last night.” She then added, “The LGBTQI community... they’re like my soulmates, since I was really young, so I’m really moved by it." She began to cry while saying this. Hamilton star Lin Manuel Miranda made a similarly emotional speech at the Tonys on Sunday night.
