When we first heard that amazing songstress Adele would be taking on Cheryl Cole’s Promise This during her Radio 1 Live Lounge session this week, we were a bit nonplussed. The singer/songwriter has much more musical kudos than the X Factor judge and we thought she’d want to out her twist on something a little more credible. However, then we heard her sing. The chanteuse almost made the track into a different song and brought a whole new feeling and vibe to what used to be an upbeat dance type number.
On why she decided to pay tribute to Cheryl Cole, Adele admitted that she has a deep love for the former Girls Aloud star. She said:
“I love her. She’s my favourite person ever. I got to meet her at the Royal Variety and Dappy from N-Dubz was next to her. It was amazing, like living a dream.”
