Adele imitator fooled by the real thing says ‘I thought she was a rubbish impersonator’.

Decked out in facial prosthetics, Adele joined a handful of Adele impersonators who thought they were auditioning for a TV pilot — a prank cooked up by British TV personality Graham Norton. As well as performing and chatting with Graham Norton during her TV special, Adele filmed a comedy sketch, donning a prosthetic chin and nose to subtly alter her appearance for the audition.But one of the singer’s biggest fans, who stars alongside her in a hilarious sketch during Friday night’s Adele at the BBC special, has revealed that’s not the case. She really committed to the gag, engaging in banter with the other impersonators (“She’s got her hands,” she says about one’s performance) and feigning extreme nervousness before she took the stage.

When she started to be nervous I was confused as she said she’d been an impersonator for four years so I thought ‘come on love, you shouldn’t be nervous’. I also thought she was a rubbish impersonator as when have you ever seen Adele wear gloves?” Adele impersonator Katie Markham said: “As soon as the first words were sung I knew it was her. However Adele, complete with prosthetic nose and chin, a slower, softer accent and full length gloves to cover her tattoos, is doing some impersonating of her own as she joins the audition too.

I perform as Adele for a living so I know exactly how she sings every note. “Nobody else noticed at first and I had to keep telling everyone ‘It’s Adele!’ The whole experience was mind blowing. Due on last, the other singers comfort ‘Jenny’ backstage when she tells them she feels a bit sick and dizzy ahead of her performance, and they sympathise when she misses her cue to start Make You Feel My Love. However when she starts singing, within a few bars, and with heart-warming reactions, the impersonators one by one start to realise that ‘Jenny’ is actually the real Adele.

She was so lovely to all of us and so complimentary as well, it made the whole day incredible from start to finish.’ The Hello singer made time for the impersonators once the cameras had stopped rolling.
