In the broadcast, which was pre-recorded and shown on Britain’s ITV channel on Sunday evening, actress Emma Thompson asked Adele if there was anyone who supported or inspired her in her youth. She replied, “Yes, I had a teacher at Chestnut Grove who taught me English, Miss MacDonald. It was only a year, but she was the one who introduced me to literature. I have always been obsessed with English – especially now, since I write songs.”
Miss MacDonald was a passionate dancer. “I thought it was too scary to join her, but she showed her dances in the cafeteria. She was really really cool. So likable. She made sure we thought he mattered, while we knew she thought we did. She also wore those gold bracelets and she was wearing shiny dresses.” She was so sweet and lovable that I always looked forward to going to the English lessons.”
When it turns out that the same Miss MacDonald is among the audience, Adele tears. “You’re amazing, my dear!” exclaimed the singer. Resulting in a strong hug. “Oh my God, I am so proud of you. Thank you for remembering me,” the teacher whispered in her former student’s ear, to which Adele replied, “You completely changed my life. Mom, mom! Can you believe this?”
Crying means that the singer should visit the make-up artist as soon as possible. After promising to exchange songs, the two leave the stage. “Alan (comedian and radio presenter Ann Carr, editor), can you entertain the audience for five minutes while I’m away?” For her band: “Run make you feel My Love And let Alan sing it.” Completely surprised, the British comedian puts his own spin on one of Adele’s greatest hits…
At the London Palladium they sat next to Emma Thompson, among others actresses Emma Watson, actors David Tennant, Bryan Cranston and Samuel L. Jackson, rapper Stormzy, singer Dua Lipa and presenter Graham Norton.
