YMMV: Adele
  • Awesome Music: "Someone Like You", and every live performance of it.
    • "Set Fire To The Rain" is pretty good, too.
    • "Skyfall", her theme for the James Bond movie of the same name. Listen to it here.
  • BBW: She doesn't have the sassy attitude associated with the trope, but her chubby looks is part of what endears her to a big part of her fandom, and she goes for a classier, more classic aesthetic when compared to her raunchier contemporaries. And whether you're into her body type or not, pretty much everyone agrees she has a gorgeous face.
  • Even Better Sequel: See Awesome Music above.
  • Fandom Rivalry: Her fans vs. Taylor Swift fans.
  • Hype Backlash: Par for the course for every popular artist, but the fact that she's actually injuring her voice causes trained (or more-trained) musicians to protest.
  • Incredibly Long Note: There's one in the middle of the first verse of "Rumour Has It". Listed under YMMV because it's only six counts and trails off at the end — long, yes, but not exactly eye-popping.
  • Memetic Badass: The "cocaine ninja" in the video for "Rolling in the Deep". It's actually a woman dancing in flour.
  • Signature Song: Previously "Chasing Pavements", but now unquestionably "Rolling In the Deep," although "Someone Like You" may fit this more outside the United States.
