Sneak Peek: Adele Performs ‘Hello’ Live For First Time On BBC Special

Published: Thursday 5th Nov 2015 by Sam

Factually speaking, Adele has already “won” with the new album ’25’ – this, despite the LP being two weeks from its release.

Breaking pre-order records left and right, the ‘Hello’ led project is already tipped to deliver the biggest sales of the decade.

And still, no promotional stone is being left unturned. The British songstress is embarking on a media flood, one that will see her hit major stages both home and away – the latter of which will include stints on SNL and her own NBC holiday special.

First, though, will be a one-hour UK special – ‘Adele at the BBC’ – which’ll air November 20th…the day ’25’ arrives worldwide.

The chart titan will deliver tracks from the new album, as well as from predecessors ’19’ and ’21.’ Naturally, ‘Hello’ is one of said songs performed and, tonight, the BBC aired a preview on The One Show.

How does the hyper-hit sound live? You be the judge below…

‘Hello’ performance starts from 3.27 mark…


Vocally, Adele – as impressive as she is – isn’t a Whitney or Mariah. What she does have in her arsenal, though, is the ability to be a great translator of lyrics (much of which she writes herself). She evokes emotion with every note sung – a trait shown here in earnest.

We can’t wait to see the full performance!

    Sam stay comparing artist to one another. I wonder if he has a complex from his parent’s comparing him to more talented and better people as a child.

    • HailBeysus November 5, 2015

      You act as if Sam is the only person that compares artists. Its always been way and doesn’t seem to be changing no matter how someone may dislike .

      • Ughh November 5, 2015

        Yea fans and haters compare. Journalist stay unbiased, so yea, I do find it odd when someone whom calls them self a journalist has an opinion on an article they wrote.

        But your right, I shouldn’t be surprised. Just like I’m not surprised about the grammar errors in your post.

  2. HailBeysus November 5, 2015

    I love Adele. She’s like Beyonce. She doesn’t deliver a vocal performance on her record she can’t give you live!! (hence vocal enhancements) She slays live!!!

  3. ????Queen Molly???? November 5, 2015

  4. It’s Rihvember b****** November 5, 2015

    • HailBeysus November 5, 2015

      • It’s Rihvember b****** November 5, 2015

        Stfu f**. Anti will slay Beyonce’s last album and sell more.. Rihanna will surprise release and slay Bey because her impact is bigger. Her puma socks sold out in three hours, rock in Rio, digital queen. Wait and see. #bookmark

      • Adovian November 6, 2015

        Screaming bc that “Piecea Of Me” set did double “Queenannas” #’s

    • sit dog November 5, 2015

      Your fave can’t even own a release date so shut it.

  5. JJFan1814 November 5, 2015

    This album, will def hit Diamond in the U.S. and sell at least 20 mm WW. Especially with the early rave reviews When We Were Young has already earned.

  6. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 5, 2015

    I don’t why why, but I keep incorporating the lyrics and her studio vocal performance in “Hello” with the studio instrumental of “Skyfall”. It’s a little weird, but it doesn’t sound too bad when you actually think about it.

  7. It’s Rihvember b****** November 5, 2015

    Anti will slay lives. I don’t care what you cumm guzzlers think. Everyone will forget about this cow when SLAYti breaks the net. #bookmark

  8. Lovelylady8 November 5, 2015

    Adele slays with class!!

  9. Truth November 5, 2015

    She has such a normal disposition I don’t think she realizes how truly big she is . She looks and sounds awesome.

  10. ????Queen Molly???? November 5, 2015

    Its hilarious seeing these Taylor, Rihanna Jazmine sullivan, and Ariana stans having these meltdowns over Queen Adele hahahaha

  11. No favs, just here for the music November 5, 2015

    To be perfectly honest her vocals sound very average live IMO. This didn’t blow me away or anything. To be fair though the official video does add special effects to her voice and whatnot so maybe that’s why I’m not overly impressed.

    • Like a prayer November 5, 2015

      You literalt just wtxhed a 30 second performance record off a boo leg iPhone. What till the performance comes in HD

  12. Like a prayer November 5, 2015

    Kiii wasn’t the hive and navy saying that Adele can’t sing anymore cause of her surgey. This gave me lifeee

  13. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 5, 2015

    Does this blog not post about Cheryl Cole, Girls Aloud, and Tinie Tempah? I saw a Cheryl Cole Stan not too long ago. She/he probably left after “Only Human” pretty much flopped.

  14. xedos November 5, 2015

    Whitney has that gospel background which gives you all those runs adel just do basic singing with good melody and lyrics She’s not going to take you to church. She’s not going to let you get out of your seat and jump during her singing. with Adel you wait for her to finish and you clap

  15. It’s Rihvember b****** November 5, 2015

    F*** Beyonce and the messy f** Hive. Rihanna coming to end her career! I heard Anti is Fire and sure to put the nail in Beyon career. Mark my words

    • HailBeysus November 5, 2015

      Kiiiiii stop please the self drag is upon you hahaha!!! When will Rihanna ever be able to open a song with an 18 cold note rift!?!?!? Like Bey did in countdown!!! Ill wait hahahaha

    • Yo momma November 5, 2015

      Not even Rihanna believes in herself as much as you do you crazy psychopath you seem delusional . rihanna sounds like a cat getting pounded down anally when she sings how u sitting here comparing her to a woman with actual talent that didn’t have to get pounded down by camel lookin jay z .. She even pushed the album back out of fear h**

    • Xyz November 6, 2015

      Anti is Not Even finished, so how can it Be fire? Fourfivesnoozes type of fire? Who told you? Rihanna in your dreams?

      I Loved rihanna and own every of her albums, as i do with beyonce’s and adele’s (dont know why everyone here acts as if one Is only allowed to listen to one Artist), but Rihanna Really let ne down this Time. And as much as i’ve been hyped for her album in the beginning of the year, as much indifferent i am now. Release that thing, leave it, whatever. After the First Three i’m def Not gonna buy it unheard like her previous Albums.

      As for Adele, she slays. She has Emotion, Is classy and seems to Be down to Earth. Love her

  16. It’s Rihvember b****** November 5, 2015

    Adele can’t even sing that good. People will bandwagon for anything. I bet she won’t sell as much as 21…

    • Yo momma November 5, 2015

      And it will still be more successful than anything rihanna has ever done

    • OMG Logic!!! November 6, 2015

      Rihanna can’t sing at all though…

  17. Like a prayer November 5, 2015

    And if rihanna is the digital queen than how come she’s not even in the top 10 highest selling first week song or sold a million copies first week?

  18. Cough Cough November 5, 2015

    No shade, cause I think she’s a good singer and sounds good in this clip, but This is as good as it’s going to get. She will sing all the rest of her live performances like this. Consistent but safe, pretty much identical to the studio version and subsequently, after 2-3 live showings, boring. She’s good but I hate that she does this.

    • Like a prayer November 5, 2015

      LOL. I’m gagging isn’t a singer suppose to sound like the studio version? That proves their they have actual talent and no studio magic? Focus on getting your fav at plat certification

      • Cough Cough November 5, 2015

        No honey, clearly you don’t understand, which obviously shows you know nothing about singers, true music and what’s made the great live singers great… COMPREHENSION LESSON 101: nobody who’s into vocals and live performances wants to hear someone sit and sing something exactly like the record. They want you to sound as good, if not better of course dumby, but if you’re going to sing it exactly like you sing it on the record down to every run, hum and chord change then we can just listen to the record. It’s very boring. We want something else that we can’t get by listening to the record. A different arrangement, different runs or vocals. Not the exact same. Stick to worrying about people’s sales and bloggers fav’s.. You clearly don’t know music.

    • Jojo November 5, 2015

      For real . Like with Whitney, where you can watch 20 performances of the same song and get something different each time. That’s always been my biggest complaint about Adele, once you’ve seen her sing a song once there’s no reason to watch another performance of the same song.

  19. Like a prayer November 5, 2015

    Fun fact. Adele 21 album has out sold ALL of rihanna discography combined in the US

    • Queen Bey and Princess Rih November 5, 2015

      Calm down, why was that even necessary.

  20. ????Queen Molly???? November 5, 2015

    A rihanna fan saying Adele can’t sing that good ????????????????????????????

  21. Theman November 5, 2015

    She’s beautiful, understated & amazing. Beyonce has not a damn thing to do with this greatness.

    • Like a prayer November 5, 2015

      She does because Beyonce is supposedly and legend but her stats are underwhelming compared to Adele

      • Cough Cough November 5, 2015

        Patti Labelles stats have nothing compared to adeles stats either and Patti Labelle is more legendary, a better singer and much more influential than Adele will ever Be. Sales don’t equal legend, dumby. There are plenty of legends who have sold a bagillion records. You can tel your like 15 years old girl. Sit down

      • Cough Cough November 5, 2015

        Haven’t sold****

  22. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans November 5, 2015

    This woman can just snap her fingers or say the word, and she’ll become a stadium act overnight. However, all that potential to break touring records held by legends is being wasted simply because of her fear. She better play some stadiums.

  23. Like a prayer November 5, 2015

    I can’t at y’all nit picking at this live performance. Adele for y’all so insecure cause your fav can’t compare

  24. Queen Bey and Princess Rih November 5, 2015

    She’s doing her thing, go ahead Adele.

  25. Queen Bey and Princess Rih November 5, 2015

    Why are you people bringing up Beyoncé and Rihanna in this post. Stop trolling and get a f****** life,Ugh.

  26. What now November 5, 2015

    She sounds phenomenal and is extremely talented, but I will agree with Sam. She’s not a (prime) Whitney, (prime) Mariah, Céline, or etc. I find Adele’s voice to offer nothing different than the great & late Amy Winehouse. She still slays and I still love her.

    SN: B4 u even try it, no I don’t think Rihanna can even come remotely close to Adele or Beyoncè vocally. There I said it… 🙂

    • Cough Cough November 5, 2015

      Any Winehouse was better. Each and every performance she did was different and crazy wild…. She took risks and was so different! Unless she was all coked up lol that’s a different story.! Adele is lucky she was distracted by her Demons

  27. Skyfall November 5, 2015

    Slay. She looks and sounds beautiful, it also looks like she lost a bit of weight.

  28. IG: @mixedboy November 6, 2015

    She’s Adele! She’s not trying to be anyone else. She’s a big gurl, be it black or white that has changed music in today’s society where there’s such mediocre b*******! She hasn’t tried to fit into any mold or tried to follow this generations pop girls. Give her props for staying original to herself. Don’t be jealous because she’s slaying and going to continue to slay your favs until the next “authentic” phenomenon comes alone. Bask in this Unicorn! #SLAYDELE

  29. OMG Logic!!! November 6, 2015

    She slayed the wigs off of all those gays in that audience.

  30. RihYonce November 6, 2015

    Adele is so so beautiful I love her & her live performances vocally always touches my soul ! Can’t wait to hear her album ! & leave Beyoncé out if this y’all always bring her up , good to know that she is the standard of performers tho lol & where’s ANTi navi ?

  31. JanStan November 6, 2015

    Adele is on another level. Commercially there’s no comparison and vocally there’s only a few that could even be mentioned in the same convo. I love Rihanna but compare this snippet to her Back to Black snippet from the voice and its insulting that her name is being mentioned anywhere here.

  32. King Stephy November 6, 2015

    I smell another DIAMOND LP coming…

    • JOHNVIDAL November 6, 2015

      Like only Madonna, Whitney, Celine and Mariah boy! 🙂
