Mesmerizing…captivating…stunning…jaw-dropping. Yes, those are just a few words and phrases I’ll use to describe Adele’s captivating performance of her chart swallowing hit, “Rolling in the Deep” at the 2012 Grammy awards. All eyes were on the British chanteuse that night as we watched her not only snatch every trophy she was nominated for(6!), but we were also highly anticipating her grand return to the stage after she underwent major throat surgery a few months prior. While you could see and somewhat feel that Ms. Adele was a bit shaky starting off, about a minute into the performance, she let herself go, spreading joy across the music globe and truly earning that worldwide standing ovation. If you haven’t watched this stunning performance lately, you most certainly need to dive in, because let’s face it, this extraordinary Grammy moment is the closest thing we’ve got to Adele music bliss while we’re all (patiently) waiting for her next album to drop. (tonight at midnight???) Get lost in your Philly Mixtape “Grammy Performance of the Day” below.
