Adele shares spotlight with viral video singers

Adele surprised two fans by inviting them to perform their viral video medley of her hits during her concert on Sunday night (06Mar16).

The Hello star played her second and final gig at the 3Arena in Dublin, Ireland, and to close out her weekend (05-06Mar16), she decided to share the stage with Irish singers Glenn Murphy and Ronan Scolard, much to their surprise.


In anticipation of attending the concert, Glenn and Ronan had posted a video of themselves singing a medley of some of Adele's biggest hits, including Someone Like You, Turning Tables, and When We Were Young.


The video went viral and Adele was left so impressed with their renditions that she brought Glenn and Ronan up to the stage mid-concert to give the audience a live performance of the medley.


"Did any of you see it (the video) yesterday?," Adele asked the crowd. "For those that didn’t, prepare to have your mind blown. I cried. I refuse to cry again tonight in front of all of you... It blew my mind. They did not know I was going to do this!"


The star had already prepared a piano and microphone for the duo, and both were clearly overwhelmed with the unexpected invitation to perform. Adele stepped out of the spotlight to let Glenn and Ronan take over, as she proudly watched on from the back of the stage.


Adele only kicked off her world tour last week (beg29Feb16), but she's already set a trend of inviting admirers on stage - she helped a female fan propose to her boyfriend in Belfast.


After being welcomed on stage by the Grammy winner, the woman explained how her boyfriend turned down her proposal earlier that day, since the leap year tradition reverses regular gender roles and the woman pops the question to her man.


Adele was not happy with his answer and scolded him, saying, "You have to say yes, or (the crowd) is going to turn on you!"


She then had the audience chant, "Come on, Neil!", as he finally accepted his girlfriend's proposal, prompting Adele to jump for joy.
