Synopsis: In this one-off, hour-long special, Adele will perform classic tracks as well as songs from her eagerly awaited new album '25', accompanied by her live band, as well as chat with host Graham Norton about her career and life to date.
It will be Adele’s first television performance since she performed ‘Skyfall’ at the 85th Academy Awards in February 2013, where she won Best Original Song for the theme tune to the 23rd James Bond film.
Adele says: "I can't wait for the show. The BBC has been wonderful to me over the years and Graham and I get on great so it's going to be a laugh."
Graham Norton says: “This is the music event of the year and I'm thrilled to be part of bringing it to BBC One. This opportunity to spend an hour with Adele, her music and her stories is a truly rare treat. If I wasn't hosting this special I'd be sat at home watching it!”
The BBC has supported Adele since the beginning of her career. Her first ever play was ‘Daydreamer’ on Reggie Yates' BBC Radio 1 show. ‘Hometown Glory’ was first played on the radio by Zane Lowe on Radio 1 in 2007 and she made her debut television performance on Later with Jools Holland on BBC Two in the same year, performing ‘Daydreamer’.
It premieres on BBC One on November 20th, 2015.
