** NO AUTO-TUNE was used in this audio recording. **
"Someone Like You" is a song by English singer-songwriter Adele written by Adele and Dan Wilson for her second studio album 21. The pop[1] ballad was inspired by a broken relationship, and lyrically it speaks of Adele coming to terms with it. XL Recordings released the song as the second single from the album on 24 January 2011 in the United Kingdom and on 9 August 2011 in the United States. Accompanied only by a piano in the song (played by co-writer Wilson), Adele sings about the end of the relationship with her ex-boyfriend. The song received positive reviews from music critics who chose the song as a highlight of the album and praised the lyrics, its simple sound and Adele's vocal performance.

Following a well-received performance of the song at the 2011 BRIT Awards, "Someone Like You" became Adele's first number one single in the United Kingdom and it stayed on the top of the chart for five weeks. The song also topped the charts in Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Italy, France and Switzerland, and has become Adele's second number one in the United States. With that achievement Adele became the first female British solo singer in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 to have two number ones from the same album. In July 2011, it became the first single of the decade to sell a million units in the United Kingdom and it was certified Platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), as well as being certified 5× platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in the United States.

An accompanying music video for the song was directed by Jake Nava and filmed in Paris, France. The video showed Adele walking alone through the streets with a sad look on her face. Critics praised the video for being simple and perfect for the sound of the song. Adele performed the song on several award and television shows including the 2011 BRIT Awards, 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. She added the song on the set list of her second tour Adele Live. The live performances of the song were heavily praised by music critics and fans. "Someone Like You" was the first recipient of the Grammy Award for Best Pop Solo Performance at the 54th Grammy Awards, held on 12 February 2012. It was voted third most favourite single of the last 60 years in the UK with Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" voted number 2 and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" as number 1, in a list voted for by the public in conjunction with The Official Charts Company's 60th anniversary.[2] "Someone Like You" is the 42nd best-selling single in the history of the UK Singles Chart.[3]
Adele performed "Someone Like You" for the first time in November 2010 on the BBC music show Later Live…with Jools Holland before the release of the album.[83] Later, she performed the song at the 2011 BRIT Awards held at The O2 Arena in London on 15 February 2011.[84] She appeared on stage backed just by her pianist while "special effects were limited to a shower of glitter and Adele's own tears, as she almost broke down delivering her lovelorn plea to an ex-boyfriend" as stated by Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph.[85] Speaking on the ITV2 after show, Adele explained why she had cried at the end of the performance saying, "I was really emotional by the end because I'm quite overwhelmed by everything anyway, and then I had a vision of my ex, of him watching me at home and he's going to be laughing at me because he knows I'm crying because of him, with him thinking, 'Yep, she's still wrapped around my finger'. Then everyone stood up, so I was overwhelmed."[86] A writer of Daily Mirror said that "Adele stole the show […] with her univerally-praised performance of Someone Like You."[84] Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph chose the song as a highlight on the show saying that Adele knocked "everyone for six with no bells and whistles, just a piano, her gorgeous voice and a monster song, Someone Like You."[87] Later, the song was performed during a VH1 special called "Unplugged".[88] Adele also performed the song at Jimmy Kimmel Live! on 24 February 2011.[89] The same day she performed "Someone Like You" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.[90] She also performed the song on Later… with Jools Holland.[91]

      I didn’t say “nice try” like a mean thing. I said it was a nice try, for real. I think she is awesome but stop trying to argue with me, I’m giving my opinion. that’s what the comment section was made for, am I wrong?

    She has a very good voice but it’s just an ordinary voice she needs practice I’m sure she will make it big time your voice isn’t mature enough
