Adele “Hello” NRJ Awards Video: Watch Performance!
Adele performed “Hello” live at the 2015 NRJ Music Awards on Saturday. Watch below!
Held in Cannes, the annual event features the French radio station NRJ honoring the best in local and international music. For the 17th ceremony, Adele was on hand to receive the NRJ Award of Honor. Justin Bieber was to receive the same recognition and perform as well.
Adele took the stage in a beaded black dress, with a spotlight illuminating her from behind. She belted out the heartbreakingly beautiful lyrics to her record-breaking track, which is the first single from her upcoming album, 25. The performance was only the second time Adele has sung “Hello” in front of a live audience.
As Gossip Cop reported, she taped an upcoming BBC Music special earlier this week, singing the song in public for the first time. Adele’s big week also included the release of her Rolling Stone cover story. Then on Friday, Gossip Cop busted a false report that wrongly claimed Taylor Swift planned to get “revenge” for comments the British songstress made in the interview about having a “squad.”
The coming weeks will bring Adele to the United States, as she’s slated to be a musical guest on “SNL” and hold a one-night-only concert at Radio City Music Hall, which will be taped for an NBC special. Check out the NRJ Awards performance below, and tell us what you think!
