Good news for Adele following the sad cancellation of her Las Vegas residency.

The 'Go Easy On Me' star has confirmed she will perform at the BRIT Awards next week.

She looks much happier in a new social media post announcing the good news.

Adele posted a very smiley photo on Instagram, captioned: "Hiya, so I’m really happy to say that I am performing at the Brits next week!!"

"Anddddd I’ll also be popping in to see Graham [Norton] for a chat on the couch while I’m in town too! I’m looking forward to it!"

Referring to her boyfriend, she signed it off: ‘Oh, and Rich sends his love’


The ceremony will air on ITV on February 8.

She performed at the ceremony way back in 2011, with an incredible rendition of 'Someone Like You' that made everyone sit up and take notice.

Adele last performed live for two special TV shows in November, before releasing her comeback album, '30'.

She is up for four nominations at the BRIT Awards, and '30' is up for the album of the year prize.


If she wins all four, she will equal Robbie Williams as the artist with the most Brit Awards.

He holds the title with 13.

The star was forced to cancel her Las Vegas residency in a tearful video.

"Hiya, listen – I’m so sorry but my show ain’t ready," she said at the time.


"We’ve tried absolutely everything we can to pull it together in time and for it to be good enough for you but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and Covid.

"Half my crew, half my team have come down with Covid – they still are – and it’s been impossible to finish the show.

"And I can’t give you what I have right now and I’m gutted. I’m gutted and I’m sorry it’s so last minute.

"We’ve been awake for over 30 hours now, trying to figure it out and we’ve run out of time."


She thanked fans for their patience and FaceTimed some of them to say sorry.

It was also announced that the BRIT Awards will be creating NFTs for the first time to celebrate the winners.
