Fleet Foxes, Patrick Watson, Iron & Wine and Phoenix have all been featured on this unique radio show. On the show’s intimate set, Adele sang three of her songs, “Someone Like You,” “Chasing Pavements,” and “Rolling in the Deep.”
Her give-it-all performances are the backbone of her successes overseas. She hit her American stride a few years ago after she appeared on an Saturday Night Live episode featuring Sarah Palin. A total of 17 million viewers tuned in, making it the best ratings the show had in 14 years. Shortly after, Adele’s first album 19 topped iTunes and reached #11 on the Billboard charts.
The stride held through 2009, when Adele snuck up and took two out of four of her Grammy nominations for Best New Artist and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.19, 21, Adele, American, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Best New Artist, Billboard 200, BRIT Awards, British, Chasing Pavements, Cold Shoulder, Grammys, Greys Anatomy, Hometown Glory, iTunes, London, Sarah Palin, Saturday Night Live
