Presenter James Corden states it beautifully,
“There’s nothing quite like the feeling when you’re listening to a song written by someone you don’t know, who you’ve never met, who somehow manages to describes exactly how you felt at a particular moment in your life. This next artist is able to do that time after time. It’s for that reason that she is currently number one in an astonishing 17 countries. If you’ve ever had a broken heart, you’re about to remember it now. Here performing “Someone Like You”, it’s the beautiful Adele.”
“Wow, wasn’t that amazing? You can have all the dancers, the pyrotechnics, laser shows you want, but if you sound like that, all you need is a piano. Incredible”. – James Corden
With each live performance, I’m astounded as to how amazing Adele is. I fell in love with “Someone Like You” after hearing it on Later Live with Jools Holland a few months ago. And this performance was far more intense and emotional. I’m amazed and moved, especially seeing how moved Adele is at the end of it. The BRIT Awards are special to Adele, and it’s fantastic seeing the audience and Adele respond to the moment, truly magical.
Words are not adequate as to how I feel when I listen to her songs, lyrics, and voice, especially her live performances. She’s fantastic. And she’s so down to earth, unpolished, and willing to be vulnerable. I had the fortune of seeing her in a tiny venue before the release of her debut album, 19, and having a little chat with her, and she’s incredibly generous, humble, and has a great sense of humor. She’s an amazing human being, and I absolutely adore her (read: healthy obsession).
Incredible. Stunning. Chilling.
