It was Adele‘s big night—and the music was just the tip of the emotional iceberg. 

Adele performed her brand new music on Sunday 14 November after many years of anticipation. 30. With the Griffith Observatory as her back, she appeared atop Mount Hollywood. It was an appropriate spot for one the most important stars of all time to be on the podium. In front of a sea of celebrity guests, she serenaded the crowd—and fans watching around the world—with the best of her discography, including signature songs like “When We Were Young,” “Hello” and “Someone Like You.” 

This was not all. One Night Only special on CBS. Additionally, she also met with Oprah Winfrey to unpack it all: Divorce, weight loss, love, her late father, young son, and her path forward—and you can bet Adele kept it real with us through it all. 

For example, as she told Oprah while reflecting on the aftermath of her divorce, “Made my feet hurt, walking through all of that concrete.”
