    Last Night's Televised Adele Show Was Incredible – Here Are 15 Of The Best Moments From It

    Gonna need Emma Thompson to be my hype-woman from now on.

    Last night, ITV broadcast the latest episode of its ongoing series An Audience with..., and the subject of the show was the one and only Adele!


    As is typical of An Audience with..., the show featured live performances as well as general chit-chat and questions from the star-studded audience.

    And I mean star-studded! Just a few of the luminaries in attendance include Emma Watson, Daniel Kaluuya, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O'Hara, Jodie Comer, Idris Elba, Emma Thompson, Dua Lipa, Dawn French, David Tennant, Samuel L Jackson, and Naomi Campbell.

    Anyway, here are the 15 moments from the night that had me crying, laughing, and just staring in wonder:

    1. When Adele began the evening by singing "Hometown Glory" and everyone just went wild.

    2. When she was really nervous and had to restart "Easy on Me".

    They should 100% release this version as a single #AnAudienceWithAdele

    3. This hilarious and unsolicited call-and-response from the crowd.

    It might be #AnAudienceWithAdele, but The London Palladium never forgets its pantomime roots 😂

    4. Every time Emma Thompson was caught dancing... Which was a lot.

    5. When she admitted that she'd love to collaborate with Daniel Kaluuya.

    Adele was asked who she would most like to collaborate with in the audience. Her answer: Daniel Kaluuya: “I’m not an actress, but I think you are the greatest actor. I’m mesmerised by you and your work. I’d love to watch you work. I think I’d learn a lot” #AnAudienceWithAdele

    6. The amazing moment when Adele's English teacher surprised her on stage.

    7. And then when she said "Bye Miss" as Miss MacDonald walked off stage.

    8. And then afterwards, when Adele had finished crying and needed her makeup redone, so she asked Alan Carr to perform "To Make You Feel My Love".

    9. When she paused to take a sip of tea like the true British queen that she is!

    10. When Adele revealed that a number of key workers and the survivors and firefighters from the Grenfell tragedy were sitting in the middle row.

    11. When Brystan Cranston was really ~feeling~ it.

    12. When she discussed her idols, which apparently does not include Beyoncé!

    Adele talking about Beyoncé in the "#AnAudienceWithAdele" special. “You know I love me some Beyoncé”

    13. When she yet again brought up what a huge Spice Girls fan she is... In front of Mel B herself!

    This was a small moment on the whole, but I live for Adele telling Idris Elba that she drove herself to Glasto and listened to Spice Girls the whole way WHILE MEL B WAS IN THE AUDIENCE!! 😱 #AnAudienceWithAdele

    14. When Stormzy and Adele reflected on their enviable friendship.
