Watch Adele Impersonate Herself For A Hilarious Prank

The reactions are absolutely priceless.

All over the world, millions of music lovers are sobbing into their pillows while listening to Adele's long-awaited new album, 25. And while the Brit singer’s penchant for waterwork-inducing ballads is the stuff of legend, she also has quite the cheeky sense of humor. It doesn’t always get translated into her music, but it’s there — and BBC has a new, hilarious skit to prove it.

With the help of some bizarre-looking prosthetics, Adele transformed herself into "Jenny," a soft-spoken nanny who moonlights as an Adele impersonator. She sports a fake chin, fake nose, black gloves to cover her tattoos, and even changes up her walk. All in all, it’s a hella convincing disguise.

With the help of host Graham Norton, “Jenny” manages to fool an entire flock of black-clad Adele impersonators. She plays the bit flawlessly: pretending to have stage fright, sneering “she’s takin’ her time” when the backstage chat turns to 25, and even purposely missing her cue onstage.

But then it’s time for the big reveal, and it’s completely hilarious and heartwarming.

Let's recap these amazing reactions:

  1. The realization comes slowly and then all at once for the Adele wannabe on the left.
