ICYMI, Adele, everyone’s favourite long-lashed singer of emotionally charged ballads, is back. And she ain’t messin’ around.
After shattering records with the video for “Hello,” she’s launching her comeback album, 25, in a huge way: by performing a bunch of new songs (as well as some old favourites) in front of a live television audience in Adele Live in London (November 25 at 8 p.m. ET on CTV and CTV Go). Between songs, she’ll also sit down for an intimate chat with Graham Norton. You know, like one of those old Anne Murray TV specials, only British and weepier.
The BBC special marks her first live television performance since she slayed “Skyfall” at the 2013 Oscars. And if this clip is any indication, it’s going to be a heck of a show, complete with a mega backing band and talk of drunk tweeting (or so we hear).
As for what else the night holds, we’ll just have to wait and see. Perhaps she’ll have David Attenborough come on stage à la Taylor Swift or maybe she’ll address how she feels about the Lionel Richie parody of “Hello” that’s been making the rounds or even the incredible – and somewhat magical – Joe Jonas version. There is really only one way to find out, and that’s to tune in and see for yourself.
