Wow. She is so incredible, and those backup singers are amazing. Also, I would like someone to deliver her dress and her hair and makeup artist to me, post-haste.

Watching that makes me realize how low my standards have fallen for live TV performances. Usually, I'm sort of cringing the whole time, just hoping they make it through without hitting too many awkward notes. And I'm not just talking about a Taylor Swift or other auto-tuned stars. I'm talking about some of my favorite acts.

So to not only kill every note of that song, but to deliver it with such force... It's like I forgot that's what live music is supposed to be.

Joe! The entire album is SO good. You've really got to check it out. You'll love it. Seek out the songs "Someone Like You" and "Set Fire to the Rain." Along with "Rolling in the Deep," they make a perfect three-pack.

Agree with Mark...I was just about to leave a comment that I don't even think this is the best song on THIS ALBUM, even though I love it. I listened to Someone Like You five straight times the first time I heard it.

Also, there is a version up on YouTube of her singing Someone Like You live in her house that may be even better than the album version.

I absolutely couldn't pick a favorite song off her new album, but I do know that her live version of "Someone Like You" has a ridiculous number of plays in a super short period of time. I cried the first time I heard it. Rolling in the Deep is gorgeous. Turning Tables is wonderful. And Set Fire to the Rain is also pretty perfect. I just adore Adele so deeply.

She is so amazing. Good call! And it was an album I pre-ordered on Itunes - which I almost NEVER do!

The amount I've listened to this song compared to the amount I've done anything else in the past week...well, let's just say the word "dwarfs" is appropriate. Also, Someone Like You. And Rumour Has It. And...
