Remember How Good Adele Sounds Live?
Posted by Videoson 01/27/2012 at 12:23 PM
With Adele’s performing status still up in the air, we’ve taken to revisiting past live shows whenever we need a good cry. The latest: an understated take of 21 track “Turning Tables” filmed for Live From the Artists Den, the PBS series which pairs artists with historic venues for intimate live performances. The 2012 season of the popular series kicks off on Feb. 3 with Adele’s previously recorded show at the Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club last February, where she drew a celebrity crowd that included Glee stars Dianna Agron, Amber Riley and Naya Rivera (plus, eh, Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes). Casually sitting legs-crossed in her signature all-black ensemble, Adele is accompanied by only a piano player and her sassy diva fingers, which somehow manage to fully evoke every confused jilted-meets-heartbroken feeling the song packs within its four minutes. The countdown to the Grammy Awards, and what we hope is a stellar opening performance from the 23-year-old, is on. Until then, remember what it’s like to watch her kill it below.
