Adele has had a number of special guests come through her Las Vegas residency show, but over the weekend someone stopped by who literally stopped the singer in her tracks. In fan-shot video of the moment during Saturday night’s show, Adele was crooning her hit 2015 single “When We Were Young” while wearing her Morticia Addams Halloween costume when she spotted a very, very special VIP in the crowd.
Adele was walking through the audience when she spotted a familiar face. “Shut up!” she said, breaking the smooth flow of the ballad as she ran over to give the man a hug. “Oh my God! Colin! This is my doctor that gave birth to my baby. I haven’t seen you for years,” she said while bursting into tears as the room broke out in “awwww”s.
Her band kept playing, but Adele gave up on continuing the song as she chatted with the MD, eventually returning to the performance and asking the audience, “Will you sing it for me? That man delivered my baby!” she said of the OB-GYN who delivered her son, Angelo, born in 2012 to the singer and her ex-husband, Simon Konecki.
Adele’s Las Vegas residency has been filled with memorable moments, from the time she stopped it to help a couple with their baby gender reveal to revealing her sciatica diagnosis and calling herself boyfriend Rich Paul’s “wife” at a show last month. She also took a moment on Saturday night to pay tribute to late Friends star Matthew Perry, who died earlier in the day at age 54 of undisclosed causes when he was found floating in his Los Angeles hot tub.
“It is always so shocking, especially someone that made you laugh and who brought so much joy to your life that you don’t know,” she told the crowd at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. “This is what I find so strange, I never met him in my life. There is something, you feel so sad about it especially because you don’t necessarily know what was going on.”
