After slaying on stage, Adele received the 2015 NRJ Award of Honor. Other recipients for this year’s award included Justin Bieber and Sting. Adele had won two prior NRJ Awards in 2011, for International Breakthrough of the Year and International Song of the Year for ‘Someone Like You’ from her second studio album “21”.
‘Hello’ continues to break chart records worldwide and most recently became the first song EVER to sell over a million digital downloads in one week in the United States.
Next venue for the unstoppable Adele will be the legendary Radio City Music Hall for a live one-night only show on November 17th!
