Adele Performs ‘Hometown Glory’ at VH1 Divas

I was going to answer The Fab Life’s question about whether Miley Cyrus deserves the harsh criticism she’s receiving for her performance at the VH1 Divas concert with a resounding “No”—she’s 16 and she did a passable job backing up Sheryl Crow, so let’s leave her alone, huh?—but I was so taken by Adele’s performance of her song “Hometown Glory” that I decided to highlight that instead. After all, why not focus on something positive when the opportunity is right there in front of you? And there are nothing but positive things to say about Adele, a girl who can not only sing her ass off, but who also knows how to handle bleeping herself—by not changing the word, but simply staying silent and slashing her hand away from herself at the appropriate moment.

P.S. This performance of “Bring Me Some Water” by Kelly Clarkson and Melissa Etheridge is pretty kick-ass, too.
