Tonight, Adele performed in front of a close group of friends and celebrity fans while also answering questions from the crowd – but someone who wasn’t there was Piers Morgan
Piers Morgan lashed out at Adele’s “sycophantic” celebrity fans – while simultaneously questioning whether she was actually singing live.
Tonight, Adele performed in front of a close group of friends and celebrity fans while also answering questions from the crowd.
The concert was filmed earlier this month but aired on ITV this evening.
Among those attending the evening were Alan Carr, Bryan Cranston, Dua Lips, Dawn French, David Tennant, Jonathan Ross, Phillip Schofield, Samuel L Jackson and Stormzy.
Someone who definitely wasn’t there was former GMB presenter Piers, who took to Twitter while the show aired.
He tweeted: “If I was at this #AnAudienceWithAdele, I’d ask her two questions: 1) Does the unctuous sycophancy from your celebrity fans make you want to vomit? 2) How come you’re singing more perfectly ‘live’ than on your records?
“* This probably explains why I wasn’t invited.”
And fans weren’t impressed with Piers’ comments, with one fuming: “You weren’t invited because you a nobody! So off you trot again and go and crawl under your stone.”
Piers went on to respond to the Twitter user, snarking: “Hi John, given I have 7.9 million more followers than you, I’d steer clear of playing the ‘nobody’ card.”
He seemed to backtrack on his comments, writing: “Minor irritations aside, there’s no doubt that @Adele is the best singer in the world right now & right up there with Barbra & Whitney as possessor of the best set of pipes in pop history. Just a shame she’s a Spurs fan. #AnAudienceWithAdele.”
Retweeting Piers’ earlier tweet, one user commented: “Tell me you’re livid you weren’t invited to #AnAudienceWithAdele without telling me you’re livid.”
But Piers denied the comment, writing: “No, those things are awful to actually attend – hours & hours waiting around, endless re-takes, way too hot, no alcohol and a high quota of celebrities I’d travel continents to avoid.”
