Adele's "Someone like you"- Brit Awards 2011 performance (Review)

Adele- "Someone like you" at The Brit Awards 2011

This performance brought me to tears. How many artists these days can stand on the stage with a microphone accompanied only by a pianist and sing…I mean... JUST SING? Adele just did that with this performance at this year's Brit Awards. She sang this song with her heart and she meant each and every word. Her delivery was so earnest that I could feel her pain. That "someone" obviously and certainly have done her wrong and left her in despair. What an achingly beautiful heartbreak song! I just can’t stop watching this clip. The maturity of her voice (and she’s only 22??) and the depth of her lyrics simply remind me of why we listen to music and why we should embrace and support true talents. “I had hoped you'd see my face, And that you'd be reminded that for me it isn't over”- Gosh….I’m heartbroken. ;o(
