Get ready to spend an elegant and hilarious night with Adele.
This week, a teaser was released for the singer’s new two-hour special “Adele One Night Only” on Global, featuring performances and an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
In the teaser, Adele sits down with Oprah — on the same set she used to interview Prince Harry and Meghan Markle — to give fans a preview of the special.
“Nobody is more compelling with the truth than Adele,” Oprah says.
“It will look like really elegant, and then I’ll tell a load of filthy jokes. Like standup. So it’ll be real, like, whiplash for them,” Adele promises, as footage of her singing “Rolling in the Deep” plays.
“I’m gonna do some old ones for you, I’m gonna do some new ones for you,” she says.
“It’s a very special night, join me when I interview the one and only Adele,” Oprah says, with Adele adding, “I invite you to join me for one night only.”
Finally, in footage of the concert, Adele asks the audience, “How posh is this?”
In a preview clip from the interview portion of the special published by People, Adele reveals the inspiration for the song “Hello”, which led off her 2015 album 25.
“I’m always going to start with ‘Hello’,” she says. “It’d be a bit weird if it was like, halfway through the set, you know? So yeah, I’m starting with it.”
Adele explains that the song was “the beginning of me trying to find myself, and I hadn’t figured out yet what it was that I had to do for that.
“When I wrote it, it was a real ode to like, little me, older me, all of these things. It’s just a song about like, ‘I’m still here.’ Like, ‘Hi, I’m still here, I still exist in every aspect of my life.'”
