Adele proved that even when she’s decked out in prosthetic makeup, her voice sets her apart from the crowd in a gag from the BBC special that aired Friday.
Disguised as “Jenny,” an Adele impersonator, the British singer pretended to audition for a TV role alongside a bunch of other impersonators. With a fake chin, a fake nose and a husky voice, she went unnoticed as she engaged in banter with the other singers and watched them perform her song “Make You Feel My Love.”
“I think she would like him,” she says about one of the impersonators, a man in drag.
Committed to selling the prank, she even went so far as to fake nerves before her performance, pretending to be sick and missing her cue.
But once the real Adele started singing, the impersonators immediately recognized her voice. “As soon as she opened her mouth,” one impersonator said. You can’t mimic like that.”
The singer’s third studio album, “25,” was released Nov. 25.
