VIDEO Adele’s First Live Performance of “Water Under the Bridge”


First the U.K., then S.N.L., and now Adele continues her world domination on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Instead of performing her infectious “Hello” or her equally emotional “When We Were Young,” the British singer turned things up a notch—just a notch—with her first live performance of the up-tempo “Water Under the Bridge.”

Instead of something that can play in the background as we cry in the fetal position alone in a room, this is more on par with the “things are gonna be O.K.” montage from a rom-com. She sang, “If you’re gonna let me down, let me down gently / Don’t pretend that you don’t want me / Our love ain’t water under the bridge.”

Still, an Adele song is an Adele song, so to shake off all the feels and bring in some comedy, Fallon played one of his favorite games with her, called Box of Lies. “I have been waiting my whole life to do this,” Adele admitted. “It was either this or the Lip Sync Battle.” Since she said that, though, you can’t watch the entire clip without thinking about how much she could have rocked that challenge with something like, say, “Hotline Bling”—something, coincidentally, she said she wants to remix.
