Video: Adele on VMAs – “Someone Like You”

Patti Smith’s favorite new singer took to MTV’s Music Video Awards last night, setting aside her biggest hit to date, “Rolling in the Deep,” for a piano-backed take on 21 heartbreaker “Someone Like You.” While Adele didn’t manage to edge out competition in the award category from the likes of Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, sharing this performance should go a long way in setting herself apart from the many pop-stars looking to rekindle hype for their 2011 efforts over the weekend. Enjoy Adele’s gorgeous ballad below:
