Los Angeles: An hour-long TV special, featuring Oscar-winner Adele, is in works by network BBC.
Graham Norton will host the special "Adele at the BBC", which will be sold internationally under the title "Adele Live in London," said The Hollywood Reporter.
The show will be hosted on flagship network BBC One taped on November 2. It will see the 27-year-old British singer perform classic tracks and songs from her new album, "25" that is set for a November 20 release, accompanied by her live band.
She will also chat with Norton about her career and life. "I can't wait for the show. The BBC has been wonderful to me over the years, and Graham and I get on great, so it's going to be a laugh," said Adele.
It will be her first TV performance since she performed "Skyfall" at the 85th Academy Awards in February 2013, where she won the best original song honour for the theme of the 23rd James Bond film.
Norton said, "This is the music event of the year, and I'm thrilled to be part of bringing it to BBC One. This opportunity to spend an hour with Adele, her music and her stories is a truly rare treat. If I wasn't hosting this special I'd be sat at home watching it."
