The BBC special, which is hosted by Graham Norton, is Adele’s first television appearance since the 85th Academy Awards in February 2013, where she performed her song from “Skyfall.”
Accompanied by her band, Adele will perform both older numbers and songs from her new album “25,” as well as chat to Norton about her career and life to date.
Salim Mukaddam, director of music for BBC Worldwide, said: “Featuring a sensational performance from Adele, as well as a candid interview with Graham Norton, and some hilarious and surprising moments, ‘Live in London’ is truly worth the wait. BBC Worldwide is tasked with bringing outstanding British talent to the world, and we hope this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship between BBC Worldwide and Adele.”
“Adele — Live in London,” which was recorded on Nov. 2, is set to air in the U.K. on BBC One on Nov. 20.
