â€œIt was also the first time my son saw me perform and Iâ€™ve never been so nervous in my life!!â€ the British singer tweeted Sunday, hours before the concert special and sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey, â€œAdele: One Night Only,â€ was set to air on CBS.
The performance before celebrity guests â€” including Lizzo, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade â€” was taped at the Griffith Observatory and came shortly after the release of her first new song in six years, â€œEasy on Me.â€
Her highly anticipated album, â€œ30,â€ will be released on Nov. 19.
â€œThe most beautiful venue Iâ€™ve ever played. Thank you to everyone who made it possible. To Oprah for allowing me to tell my truth lovingly in a safe space. The whole thing was pretty overwhelming, Iâ€™ve seen it twice and cried my eyes out both times,â€ the Grammy winner said in a tweet.
In interviews with Rolling Stone and Vogue ahead of â€œOne Night Only,â€ which will be her first televised discussion about the album, Adele spoke about the turbulent events of the more-than-half decade since her last album, â€œ25,â€ which included a marriage, divorce and move to Los Angeles.
The singer and her ex-husband, Simon Konecki, now live across the street from one another in Beverly Hills and co-parent Angelo, whom she said the album was dedicated to.
â€œI just felt like I wanted to explain to him, through this record, when heâ€™s in his twenties or thirties, who I am and why I voluntarily chose to dismantle his entire life in the pursuit of my own happiness,â€ she told British Vogue. â€œIt made him really unhappy sometimes. And thatâ€™s a real wound for me that I donâ€™t know if Iâ€™ll ever be able to heal.â€
â€œAdele One Night Onlyâ€ is set to air on Sunday at 8:30 p.m. EST/8 p.m. PST, and will also be available on Paramount+.
