The Oscar-winning singer teamed up with BBC America to promote her upcoming special, Adele: Live in London, to surprise fans who were given the chance to pose next to her Academy Award statuette by photobombing their pictures.
As you can see in the video above, when finally confronted by the 27-year-old icon -- at one point she actually says, "Hello from the other side" -- the unsuspecting fans, not equipped to deal with this kind of life-altering experience, need to take a moment to recollect themselves.
On Friday, ETonline released an exclusive clip from the upcoming special, where Adele admits that after her 21 album, she considered retirement.
"I just got really worried that I was never going to make anything that anyone liked again," Adele shares in our first look video above. "It was just like I was being self-critical of myself, it was nothing else other than that. And also I started to wonder maybe with 21 being so successful, is it enough for everyone, but I realized that it wasn't enough for me, so sorry."
Thanks to all that is kind and good, Adele did continue to write and release music.
