It's no surprise that Adele sounds and looks phenomenal in Adele at the BBC.

The British Broadcasting Corporation has released a teaser of the 27-year-old singer's first televised performance since the Academy Awards in 2013, which was taped Monday in London. Adele looked lovely in an embellished Jenny Packham dress while belting her smash hit "Hello."

Graham Norton also interviewed Adele for her BBC special, and in one segment, he allowed audience members to ask the singer questions about her music, personal life and more. One person wondered if it's true that Adele's Twitter account is run by her management team. "This is true," she admitted, later explaining, "I'm not a drinker anymore, but when Twitter first came out, I was drunk tweeting and nearly put my foot in it quite a few times, so my management decided you have to go through two people and then it has to be signed off by someone. But they are all my tweets. No one writes my tweets—they just post them for me."


The Grammy Award-winning musician also talked about returning to the recording studio after getting engaged and having a baby. "It was that thing of, 'Do I or don't I want to go back to my music?' Obviously I do, and I just wanted to make sure that everything was in place for me to do it so I could do it properly," she told Norton.

"I can't do anything else," she added. "This is all that I like doing."

Adele at the BBC airs on BBC1 Nov. 20 at 8:30 p.m. local time.

The singer's third studio album, 25, will be released the same day.
