Adele is coming back in a big way.

The 27-year-old singer/songwriter gave her first live television performance of her wildly popular, record-breaking new single, "Hello," on BBC Music -- and, needless to say, it was heart wrenching.

All the passion that was seen in her music video for the song was evident when she took the stage, donning an elegant green and sequin dress. This is also her first live performance since the 2013 Academy Awards, where she won an Oscar for the James Bond theme song, "Skyfall."

"Hello" is Adele's first new song in three years, and the world was certainly ready for it. Just this week, the track had the biggest sales week for a single since Elton John's Princess Diana Tribute, "Candle in the Wind," in 1997.

The music video for the song also broke a record on Vevo when accumulated more than 27 million views in the first 24 hours of its release.

During her interview with Graham Norton on the BBC Musicspecial, Adele revealed that she wasn't certain she would return to music after having her baby, Angelo, with her boyfriend, Simon Koncecki.

"It was that thing of, do I or don't I want to go back to my music," she said. "Obviously I do, and I just wanted to make sure that everything was in place for me to do it so I could do it properly."

Adele added, "I can't do anything else, this is all that I like doing."

As for her Twitter account, she admitted that it's not her posting messages -- and for good reason.

"I'm not a drinker anymore, but when Twitter first came out, I was drunk tweeting and nearly put my foot in it quite a few times," Adele confessed. "So my management decided you have to go through two people and then it has to be signed off by someone."

She clarified, "But they are all my tweets, no one writes my tweets, they just post them for me."
