VH1 is kicking off the legendary Unplugged franchise in 2011 with soulful singer Adele, the former VH1 You Oughta Know artist whose sophomore album has been dominating charts in Europe since being released internationally Jan. 24. Sorry America, you have to wait until Feb. 22. The Adele Unplugged premieres online March 3 and airs on VH1 March 4 at 11/10c. We’ll be at the taping of the show this Thursday, Feb. 3, getting up close to hear how her raw voice sounds in a super intimate setting (yep, hard work!).
Expect exclusive pics and videos in the coming weeks and follow both VH1 and TheFABlife on Twitter for real-time updates from the taping at 2/1c. While we’re guessing Adele will mostly cover material from her new album, 21, we know she’ll be performing “The Contradictions Track” — an unlikely cover song thanks to Unplugged sponsor Starburst. Should Adele stick to the vintage soul/R&B sound that she’s mastered so well or go in a different direction? Let us know in the comments section what cover you’d love to hear her sing. Adele, you listening?
