  Adele is dazzling in candid make-up free photos Adele looked as radiant as ever as she went make-up free for a series of photos on Instagram.Adele has floored her social media followers with a series of striking photos in which she has ditched her trademark winged eyeliner and gone completely make-up free. The notoriously private Hello hitmaker delighted her fans as she gave them a rare glimpse into her life offstage as she enjoyed some rare downtime during her tour.

Adele fans were seeing double in Washington after the singer was joined by an impersonator during her concert on Tuesday night (25Jul16).

The Hello singer was playing her second sold-out show at Seattle's KeyArena when she noticed a doppelganger in the crowd, whose uncanny resemblance prompted Adele to bring her onstage to get a closer look at the devoted fan.

Kris Zello, aka Kristie Champagne, was wearing a hand-made, floor-length sequined gown, very similar to the one Adele had on that night, and in video footage posted online, the British songstress is clearly stunned at the similarities between herself and her impersonator. With her mouth agape, she exclaimed, "You look amazing!"

After embracing her, Adele told the crowd Champagne is officially one of her favourite impersonators she's ever met, and even helped drum up business for the drag queen, who performs as the Grammy winner two nights a week at a nearby restaurant.

Speaking of the memorable encounter, Zello tells local news station Q13 her idol was "perfect" in person, adding that she used their precious one-on-one time to tell her exactly how much she has meant to her.

"I wanted her to know that her music not only is amazing but it touches people in (more) ways (than) she probably even knows, and I didn't want to miss my opportunity to tell her that she really helped to become the person I am today," Zello said.

Adele famously revealed her obsession with her impersonators during a sketch on U.K. TV special Adele at the BBC, in which she donned a prosthetic nose, fake chin and a wig to disguise herself as a singer called Jenny, and joined a line-up of Adele impersonators as they auditioned for a fictitious television programme at a London theatre.

"Nothing quite prepared me for walking towards, like, 10 other girls dressed up as me, that was pretty overwhelming, but the whole thing was funny, but also really, really beautiful, and I cried a lot at the end once I revealed myself," she said. "There's a drag queen in L.A. that I really wanna see; he looks amazing, he does a really good job. But now that I've done that it's, like, opened a whole new world for me; I wanna find all of them!"


Predicting the unpredictable: Your MTV VMAs rundown .
Get your Twitter fingers ready, America — the MTV Video Music Awards are fast approaching and will air Sunday, Aug. 28 from New York City. And so, as comes with anticipation for any awards show: people make subjective (and probably wrong) predictions for fun. I am about to be one of those people. But I’m going to start with the least subjective thing involved with this year’s VMAs, and that is Rihanna. Rihanna is set to accept the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which is described as an award given to artists as a lifetime achievement award to honor his or her body of work and for making a profound impact on MTV culture.
