Graham Norton has bagged the first live worldwide performance of Adele’s new single, ‘Hello’ for the BBC. Clearly delighted with the coup, a beaming Norton cajoled Adele about various rumours milling around the music verse, in quirky game-show fashion.
“Rumour has it” (pun of puns) saw audience members question the ‘Hello’ singer about various whispers, with one asking, “Is it true that you’re not allowed on your own Twitter account”. The singer good humouredly answered the question, confirming that her management had indeed banned her from direct tweeting. After some near misses with late night drunken tweets, her management insisted that Adele go through two lines of approval before a comment could be tweeted! And you thought you had it bad in work eh?
Although ‘Hello’ received some mixed reactions from the music press, there is no doubting Adele’s hu-normous talent as a vocalist and live performer. Watch a smidge of the BBC premiere here.
Taken from Adele’s upcoming album, 25, due out 20th November, the full official video version of Hello, below, has already clocked up a staggering 266,667,533 views – mind blowing!!
