Now we have the pleasure of watching Adele kill it live in a preview for a BBC One special airing Friday, November 20. It's the first time she's performed on stage since the 2013 Oscars and the video shows only a snippet, but it's glorious. The belting! The runs! The expressive hand gestures! Prepare to feel all the things while watching the singer's return:
