best voice out right now someone like you starting to burn up the chart like rolling in the deep.

# 2

What a voice and what a beautiful song! Adele just blows me away.

# 3

Her voice is literally perfect, but the one time she performs at the VMA’s it slightly cracks? Ugh what luck. She was great.

# 4

Love her but did not feel this performance. The whole hands thing also throws me off

# 5

She’s amazing! God bless her voice

# 6

This is what I mean a true/real singer..

# 7

So refreshing to see a female artist who doesn’t dress like a ****.

# 8

She’s too grand to be singing in that den of autotune celebs. She’s got a huge future ahead of her.

# 9

What a beautiful singer! just stunning!
I was actually kinda disappointed she didn’t take home any awards, although Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Britney Spears are hands down some of the most talented and beautiful singers in the world right now, I have no doubt Adele can take them all of the three down any day in a second with that gorgeous and powerful voice of hers!

Yeah she doesn’t dress like a **** because she doesn’t have the body for it. I agree she has a gorgeous voice but I don’t really care what she wears.

That was horrible! I don’t get the hype.

miss piggy is waaaaaaay overrated!

@Ohaihai: Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Britney are NOT the most talented singers. Thats funny. Christina Aguilera, Adele and Beyonce are the most talented singers of this generation.

Amazing. No stupid gimmicks, dancers, costumes, boobs or booty. Her voice is enough to fill up that stage and capture the audience attention, can’t say the same about the fabricated products invading the radio.

Her voice cracked because she was getting emotional… watch the video again, you can see the tears in her eyes… She’s def singing to her ex!

loves her @ 08/29/2011 at 1:31 am

Adele is amazing. she is the most talented female star next Beyonce. Adele is classy and she deserve all of teh sucess that she has. she does’nt have to dress like a ***** to sell records and she is selling more records than all of the it girls.

I LOVE this song… And her voice is truly amazing

because I can @ 08/29/2011 at 1:39 am

I love that she is near tears in almost every one of these performances. True pain and passion in her work. Such a genuine and talented artist, you can tell she means every word she sings.

Amazing performance, she has a voice that moves me every time I hear it. I love this song so much. Even though I’ve never had that experience, I’m so touched by it.

@Tracy: @jojo: I guess Katy Perry is more up your alley. ROTFL

She never fails to blow me away and/or move me to tears! effing brilliant, this ons is!

Now that’s what I call talent. Not that FRAUD chris brown that retards like to say has talent plz. The same with katy perry, music for Retards!!

@Jeff: Jesus, you people need to look beyond crappy pop music. Feist, Laura Marling and St. Vincent are more talented than these saps.

Mark Ronson @ 08/29/2011 at 10:07 am

Adele is the best blue-eyed soul singer of this generation. Amy was great, Joss Stone is great and so is Duffy. If you really want to hear a truly amazing singer listen to Melanie Fiona she is underrated like mad.

She has an amazing voice and songs! I agree with most comments here, Adele proves that if you have a talent you don’t need to pose nude, or wear vulgar clothes to promote yourself. Bravo Adele!
