Teaming up with the BBC’s Graham Norton, the singer — who just dropped her third studio album, disguised herself as an Adele impersonator to hang out with a bunch of other Adele impersonators and absolutely astonished them.
To pull it off, Adele got a fake chin and fake nose to go undercover as Jenny, whose day job, Adele says, is nannying, reports Entertainment Weekly.
When she introduces herself to the fellow impersonators, she does a pretty stellar job at hiding the fact that she has a casual 10 Grammys at home. She even sneaks in a dig at herself and fakes some serious nerves before taking the stage for her performance of “Make You Feel My Love.” But as soon as she sings, no one can deny that that, right there, is most definitely Adele.
“I was actually worried the impersonators would think they were the butt of the joke and be insulted. After the reveal you could tell it really made their day; they were so pleased. That made me kind of happy.”
“That one girl knew like right away, that’s impressive. The other girls couldn’t believe it.”
Watch the prank of the year here. Her confidence, her slow nanny voice, her walk…she clearly had fun with this. And it’s actually quite touching.
