As the performer began the next song, "Water Under the Bridge," the delighted fan jumped back up and screamed in enthusiasm. He was then approached by a security guard and told him, "I'll stay calm," as the staffer seemingly confirmed attendees are allowed to stand up and sing.

Another security guard came up to the fan and said, "You don't have to sit down," as Adele noticed the commotion and paused the song to address it.

Adele continued, "Why are you all bothering him? Can you leave him alone, please? They won’t bother you anymore, darling. You enjoy the show. Leave him alone."

"Sorry, guys," she told the rest of the crowd. "He’s been bothered the whole show by security and other people sitting behind him.

The "Rolling in the Deep" singer then instructed her band to "start again," and she sang "Water Under the Bridge" another time. The fan screamed in excitement and blew kisses toward Adele, who gestured as though she caught one of the kisses and put it in her pocket, according to another video.

The attendee explained that he "finally had the opportunity" to see the Weekends with Adele residency after "planning to come" for more than a year. "I still can not wrap my head around the fact that I was in the same room as ADELE, sang every song with her, and she even stopped the show to defend me," he continued.

"I did not expect everyone in my section to be mad at me for having the time of my life and wanting to stand up and sing with her but I honestly did not care at all about what anyone was saying to me," he added. "I just was in awe with the masterpiece I was watching with my own eyes. I did not have time for them haters."
