Adele rapping Nicki Minaj's verses from Monster is everythingJan 14 2016

James Corden does this thing on the Late Late Show where he drives around with singers doing karaoke in a car. Yesterday, he picked up Adele and they drove around singing a few of her songs and then she did, without dropping a word, Nicki Minaj's verses from Monster1 (starts at about the 10:15 mark). Soooo good. (via @djacobs)

  1. Which is, for my money, one of the rap performances of all time, album or no.

Adele's isolated vocals from SNLNov 23 2015

At the risk of turning this into an Adele fan site, here are the isolated vocals for her performance of "Hello" for Saturday Night Live. They are raw and flawless and real and everything pop music isn't these days.

Update: That YouTube video got yanked, but I found the vocals on Soundcloud. We'll see how long that'll last.

Update: Welp, that lasted about 10 minutes. Digg has embedded their own video. How fast will that one disappear?

Adele shows up to Adele impersonator contest in disguiseNov 21 2015

This is all sorts of charming. BBC held an Adele impersonator contest and arranged for Adele to compete in disguise as a woman named Jenny. I love the looks on the women's faces when they realize what's going on.

David Attenborough narrates Adele's HelloNov 03 2015

BBC Radio One got David Attenborough to narrate the first minute or so of Adele's video for Hello as if it were a nature documentary. Solid gold. Although I am a little cross they made Attenborough say the words "hashtag flip phone". :|

Bonus pseudo-Attenborough: the episode of Human Planet on The Douche.
