Adele's voice is pretty golden, but how does she sound when everything else is taken away? As it turns out, she still sounds totally amazing. Over the weekend, the 25 singer appeared on Saturday Night Live with new performances of "Hello" and "When We Were Young." Now, her isolated vocals have surfaced online, and she still sounds pretty much perfect.
While isolated vocals have been less than kind to the likes of Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, Adele stuns with "Hello," with a pitch perfect rendition and a live voice as strong as it is on record. She even adds a few stunning runs, just for fun.
This totally flawless live vocal makes that silly face she made at the end of her performance all the more endearing.
Adele performed "Hello" and "When We Were Young" for her second stint on SNL on Nov. 21, just one day after her new album was released.
Because of the strength of her voice, Adele's new album 25 may very well be on course to sell the most albums in Nielsen history. According to reports, she's expected to exceed 2 million copies sold. Adele very well may break the record set by NSYNC's No Strings Attached in 2001. That album sold 2.4 million copies in its first week. New projections indicate that Adele may sell anywhere from 2 million to 2.9 million copies in her first seven days on sale.
25 is Adele's first record in nearly five years, following the massive success of her sophomore effort 21.
