Adele couldn't perform in St. Paul, Minnesota without finding a way to honor Prince.
The 28-year-old British singer kicked off her American tour in Prince's hometown
on Tuesday night, and acknowledged the late legend who died in April
. After the main video screen displayed the music video for Prince's 1994 hit "The Most Beautiful Girl In the World," Adele explained why she wouldn't be covering a Prince song.
"I did maybe consider covering a song, but f**k it, it's Prince," she admitted, according to Billboard.
Of course, Adele did grace the audience with a few of her hits including "Hello," "Skyfall," "Someone Like You," and her current single, "Send My Love (to Your New Lover)."
The singer also hilariously dished on her visit to Minnesota, including her sample of the local cuisine.
"I had, like, a chicken on a donut, yeah?" Adele told the audience as they laughed. "Yeah, I went extra hard at the gym for that today. When I say extra hard, I mean, it's me, so, it's not that much."
"The LGBTQ community, they're like my soulmates since I was really young, so I'm very moved by it," she explained.
