Adele says we’ve been pronouncing her name wrong this whole time, but the rest of us have been saying it wrong too. We always say it right, she always says it wrong.
The name itself is so unpronounceable. Adele is one of those names that could never possibly be pronounced. It’s like pronouncing the word hobo.
We have an image of Adele that is a lot like our image of the Queen. And so we all pronounce her name wrong. But Adele is a very different kind of Queen, because Queen Elizabeth is never wrong. You know what we mean? Adele is a different Queen, we don’t even know who she is.
I don’t know, I don’t think Queen Elizabeth is actually Queen. Adele is Queen. Queen Elizabeth, Adele, the Queen. Adele is a very different kind of Queen and she’s been telling us for ages that we’re all wrong. Even me. She says our name is wrong now.

On her album “Adele,” the title track features Adele’s now-husband, Jamie xx. As a matter of fact, he was one of the writers on Adele’s previous album, her debut for XL.
One of Adele’s ex-husbands and then her best friend and musical partner, Jamie xx, was at the opening of my album release party with me and I couldn’t think of a better way of introducing him to you. We’re going to do Jamie and Adele together tonight. We hope you’re watching the show.
I am. My first show. I’m so excited, I’ve waited so long. I’ve never ever done anything like this before. I cannot wait until this is over. It’s been a long time coming. Tonight should be fantastic!
I know we all love Adele, we love Jamie. We’ll be singing her song in the front. And I am so excited. This is the first time I’ve sung in front of a real audience.
This is going to be great. I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve been doing it for years, but it’s the first time for me to be on stage in front of fans. I’m really excited.
This is going to be a fabulous night.
I love Adele more than anything in the whole world and I can’t wait to see her tonight with Jamie
