Watch: Adele gets starstruck meeting Adele drag queen impersonator

Adele pulled an Adele drag impersonator on stage – and she seemed pretty starstruck about it all.

The Hello singer paused mid-concert at her July 25 show in Seattle’s Key Arena, after spotting an impersonator in the crowd.

She pulled the lookalike up on stage – only to discover they are a drag queen.

Adele said she was “speechless”, gushing: “You look so amazing! Oh my god. I actually really love that dress.”

The drag artist Kristie Champagne (real name Kristopher Zello) told the singer: “I impersonate you twice a week, that’s my job

“You seriously changed my life for the better. Dreams do come true.”

At a concert last month, the singer broke down on stage while discussing Orlando.

She said: “Thank you so much for coming to my show. I would like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody at Pulse nightclub in Orlando.

“The LGBTQI community are like my soulmates, since I was really young so I’m pretty moved by it.”

She joked:”I don’t know why I’m crying already because most of tonight is pretty miserable, because most of my songs are f***ing miserable.

“I do have two songs that sound happy but they’re not. And if you like to dance this is your final chance, honestly because they have a beat.”
