      Mary I agree, she should have kept politics out of it , real shame, but I suppose the people in show business in the US are all Liberal types, She was probably told to slag of the President. May not have had a choice.

    Какое замечательное видео! Такое теплое и трогательное ^_^ Это самое лучшее замаскированное выступление из всех, что я видела! Адель как всегда крута! Ещё и повеселила на 01:19, 02:41, а особенно на 04:06 и 05:30 =)))
    И другие выступавшие тоже замечательно пели! Такие талантливые, очаровательные и очень добрые фанаты. Я так рада, что они смогли встретиться вот так со своей любимой певицей. Я даже всплакнула :)

    Adele is one of those super talented people....who you actually could be friends with. She's not about the fame. She's about the friendships and singing.

    At 8:44 the guy said that he thought that he was the last person to get it that it was actually Adele. Based on this video, it was the girl at 6:43 who was last to get it.

    Such a perfect reward for them, think the only thing that consoles them from not winning was meeting Adele in person. That place would have been brimming with fans if there was any chance Adele would show up.. I'm guessing the secrecy of getting to so few Adeles to apply or if they whittled many more down to these few.. So glad Adele managed to pull it off
