Live Performance: Adele “Someone Like You” at BRIT Awards 2011

 

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).

I can’t wait for her album 21 to come out in the US and for her tour in May and June. (21 will be winning many awards next award season… )

Incredible. Stunning. Chilling.

Daily Cover: Adele meets The Cure’s “LoveSong” Live at Tabernacle

On Adele‘s sophomore album, 21, she does an amazing cover of The Cure‘s “Lovesong”. It’s quite different from the original, and has been Adele-ified.

She performed the song at her concert at the Tabernacle, which was streamed online. Hopefully we’ll see a live album from her soon, as she’s fantastic live.

Adele’s album is available in the UK and is currently at the top of the charts. It will be released in the US on the 22ndof February.

Adele is one of my all time favorites, and I hope her album is massive in the US.
