    This was in my recommendation for ages and im not really a fan of her music. She can sing extremely well I know that much . But I’m glad I gave in and just bloody watched the thing as it was bugging me for months always there.. Was lovely and Adele seems a verry funny beautiful lady with a good heart . I’m glad I watched it . Have a soft spot for her now .

    The drag queen needs to go back to being a dude, because you can't force the world to embrace your delusional thinking...

    Oh....the poor, poor people. What a life they must have to only want to copy of someone else. And even to cry when they met her.
    What amazed me was that they weren't even embarrassed when they realised she was there. They should have been mortified.
    It's said that imitation is the highest form of flattery but this was awful.
    I really like her 2nd and third albums and I sing along to them....in the house, in the car but never would I ever do what these people did as I have other interests.

    The joke behind this can't shadow the fact how amazing impact Adele has on her fans. They are a heart warming bunch. When 'Jenny' said she was not feeling well, and went off, one exclaimed 'Bless her'. It might be a competition, but they care for each other. No nasty quips behind Jenny's back. Well, at least the camera won't show us any :) But I'm pretty sure my cynical side can't win this arguement. The whole athmosphere is such a big hug.
    This prank exposes the pure gold in Adele's music - and character! - that catches on in her fans. This is so soul healing to watch. I'm a guy, and I feel so choked in my heart watching this. Evry time. This is not the first time I'm here, and hopefully not the last.

    Why haven't the majority of these women and the make impersonator go for singing careers. Most are really good. I can't say all because we don't hear them all.

    As an artist this has got to be the best way to meet your fans. Hang out with them for a while totally natural. Hear them perform at their best (no nerves because they are singing for their idol) and then perform for them. Tell them how amazing they were. Thank them. Adele is also so humble. Also, also, one of those Addled was NOT fooled. She heard like 3 notes and knew.
