Adele’s Stunning Brit Awards Performance Goes To #1

February 17th, 2011 // Leave a Comment

I can’t say enough amazing things about Adele. Her song, “Someone Like You,” which is the second single off her album 21 is one of the most powerful and emotionally devastating songs I’ve ever heard.

The singer performed the track at the Brit Awards earlier this week and proved that with little more than a piano and an amazing voice, you can shut the joint down. The actual performance version shot straight to #1 on the UK iTunes chart, while the album version sits at #4 and “Rolling in the Deep” is right behind it at #5.

Her album 21 has also been at the top of the UK charts since it’s release, and is still outselling the rest of the top five combined in it’s third week.

I cannot wait to see her when she tours the US this spring, check out the dates after the jump and her amazing performance!
