Adele fans can rejoice b/c on Tuesday, November 29, Adele is back with a live concert DVD/Blu-ray and album that is truly something magical. “ADELE – Live At The Royal Albert Hall” was filmed live on September 22, 2011 to promote her best-selling album, “21,” but it also shows us a side of the British singer that most of us have never seen.
In the concert, Adele is sincere, honest, laugh out loud funny and very, very bawdy! In fact, she curses like a sailor (“Royal Albert f***ing Hall”), but you have to love her honesty. Adele writes songs about her failed relationships and she not only sings them beautifully (and that’s an understatement), she also tells us the stories behind the music. It’s sometimes sad, but always moving. None more so than when she sings her hit, “Someone Like You.” The audience is brought to its feet and Adele is brought to tears, confessing that the whole experience inside the Royal Albert Hall is a bit much for her. Fortunately, we have a front row seat hearing Adele sing some of her biggest songs (“Chasing Pavements,” “Turning Tables,” Rolling In The Deep”) and even a few covers including Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” (which she dedicated to her late friend, Amy Winehouse).
In a special feature on the DVD/Blu-ray entitled, “You, Me and Albert,” Adele brings us into her world and shares with us her excitement to be performing in one of London’s top performance halls (the best in her opinion). She goes on to say that she is always nervous before a show and if she throws up before a concert then she knows it will be “bloody brilliant.”
Best of all, the DVD/Blu-ray comes with a CD of the concert so you can take this fantastic performance with you where ever you go… plus the CD is totally free of Adele’s potty mouth… no expletives, just exceptional music from an exceptional artist.

Sometimes I think GLEE gets it right and sometimes I think it gets it wrong. Tuesday night, the ladies of GLEE mashed up Adele’s beautiful “Someone Like You” and the yet-to-be released “Rumour Has It.” And Tuesday night, GLEE got it oh so right!!! Damn, that mashup is incredible! Amber Riley who plays Mercedes and Naya Rivera who plays Santana blended exceptionally well. And that choreography…electrifying. The best part of all is that you can download it from iTunes. This is definitely one that you want on your iPod…or so rumour has it! Check out the performance below.
Finally! Not sure what took her so long, but British pop singer ADELE finally made a video for her hit song, “Someone Like You.” If you haven’t heard it, what planet are you on? It’s a brilliantly beautiful song by a brilliantly beautiful singer. This is a woman who has a long career ahead of her. Just don’t date her (unless you want an album about you).
