The record-breaking singer will be singing live with her own band, during the one-off show, to be broadcast on BBC One in November.
It will be Adele’s first television performance since she performed ‘Skyfall’ at the 85th Academy Awards in February 2013, where she won Best Original Song for the theme tune to the 23rd James Bond film.
She says: "I can't wait for the show. The BBC has been wonderful to me over the years and Graham and I get on great so it's going to be a laugh."
The BBC can boast that they have supported Britain's biggest musical export since the very beginning of her career. Her first ever play was ‘Daydreamer’ on Reggie Yates' BBC Radio 1 show. ‘Hometown Glory’ was first played on the radio by Zane Lowe on Radio 1 in 2007, and she made her debut television performance on Later With Jools Holland on BBC Two in the same year, performing ‘Daydreamer’.
Graham Norton says: “This is the music event of the year and I'm thrilled to be part of bringing it to BBC One. This opportunity to spend an hour with Adele, her music and her stories is a truly rare treat. If I wasn't hosting this special I'd be sat at home watching it!”
Adele goes from strength to strength as she prepares to reveal her eagerly-awaited new album. The first single from '25' was released last Friday and has already seen her overtake Taylor Swift with Vimeo's most popular ever video.
Tickets for the BBC event will be available via an audience ballot. Registration to apply is open from now until midnight on Wednesday 28 October – please visit bbc.co.uk/music for further details.
