Hummer: Adele's "Someone Like You"
By Noah Michelson
Sophomore slump is always a legitimate worry for musicians (and their fans), but after hearing Adele perform "Someone Like You," from her upcoming 21, due out February 22, we're fairly certain she (and we) have nothing to worry about. We haven't been this blown away by a performance in months. Who needs pyrotechnics, dancing robots, or coochie cutters when you've got a voice and songwriting ability like this?
