Sir Elton: Adele's the real deal

Sir Elton John is a big fan of Adele

Sir Elton John has sung the praises of Oscar-winner Adele.

The London-born singer, who already has a clutch of Grammys to her name, added to her awards haul at Sunday's ceremony, when she won Best Original Song for Skyfall.

And speaking from the red carpet at his annual Aids fundraiser viewing party, Sir Elton said the 24-year-old was the epitome of what "an entertainer should be".

"She's authentic," he explained

"She doesn't lip-synch, she comes on and she sings, she's the real deal.

"She's not slick, she's human, she's imperfect, she's what every entertainer should be."

Adele, who had performed Skyfall live for Hollywood's biggest names earlier in the evening, was visibly moved as she picked up the Oscar, thanking her co-writer, Paul Epworth for "believing in me all the time".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Don't let a manipulator take advantage of you. Someone with a sob story will ask for money or favours. Be prepared to turn them away. Although you want to be gracious, it simply isn't wise to give assistance to people with bad motives. Other people have warned you about this trickster. Take their advice. There's often a good reason why a person has a bad reputation. If anyone dares accuse you of being selfish, stay strong. You have a right to use your hard earned money for your own benefit.More
