1. My niece got me started on Adele

A wonderful voice and seems like a charming woman. So very nice to see someone not a size zero in a transparent outfit accepting. Sounds like her surgery was a success.

The accent was surprising and adorable.

5. Same here

I mean, I've known forever that British singers usually don't sing with British accents (or at least you don;t notice it during a song - except for "Oooooim Ennery de 8f oi am") but the contrast between her singing and speaking voice was astounding.

And I love both of them.

7. yeah, I was surprised by it, too.

I knew she was British but I'd never heard her speaking voice. She is an absolute doll and the accent just added to her overall appeal. She just sounds so genuine and sweet and funny too!

Love her.

I was so SO happy for her. She deserved every single last one of those awards.

15. I think she's very talented but still not a big fan

There have been so many amazing Brit female singers over the years like Duffy, Amy Winehouse and Beth Gibbons of Portishead. I feel like everytime I buy one of their albums thinking they are 'the next big thing' another one comes along next year.

But after seeing her at the Grammy's I do hope she continues her success and not let the fame catch up to her. She's beautiful as she is but you know hidden around the corner somewhere is someone who thinks they know how to make her 'better looking' (the Rachel Zoes of the world who think being a size 0 is the only way to look attractive.)
