Adele Pranks Impersonators By Showing Up At Audition In Disguise

The star pretended to be a mild-mannered nanny named Jenny.

She didn't look the part, but she certainly sounded it.

Adele donned a convincing disguise to prank Adele impersonators for a BBC segment that aired in the U.K. on Friday.

The "Hello" singer pretended to be a nanny called Jenny at the audition for a made-up show at the New Wimbledon Theatre in London. The prank was part of "Adele at the BBC," hosted by Graham Norton.

The other hopefuls were oblivious that their idol, wearing a prosthetic chin and nose, stood just feet away.

They all chatted behind the scenes as, one by one, each of the impersonators was called to the stage.

Adele, in character as Jenny, claimed she'd been working as an impersonator for four years, but said there hadn't been much work recently -- a reference to the fact the actual singer has just released another album after four years. 

After pretending to suffer from nerves and walking away from the group, Adele returned to the stage to sing -- and, after recognizing her signature voice, her impersonators slowly realized that it was the actual star herself.

Adele's latest album, "25," was released on Friday. It's not streaming on Spotify or Apple Music, though.
