Adele's '21' came out in early 2011, but it was still the best-selling album of 2012 on a global scale. The Oscar winner's watershed record moved another 8.3 million copies last year, outselling its closest competition, which was Taylor Swift's October 2012-released 'Red, by nearly 3 million units.
The "unstoppable" Adele -- that's how actress Jennifer Lawrence described her when introducing the singer -- returned to the stage for the first time since last year's Grammys. She performed her Oscar nominated James Bond theme 'Skyfall' at the 2013 Oscars tonight (Feb. 24).
The new mother, who gave birth since her last major performance, hasn't missed a step, a note or a beat. She sounded as flawless as ever.
The life of a pop star is grueling.

JDA is the Adam Lambert of Season 12 of 'American Idol.' The flashy, fabulous and flamboyant hopeful wore heels, lots of eyeliner, black nail polish and loads of glitter, which shimmered under the bright, hot stage lights. On tonight's (Feb. 21) sudden death episode in Las Vegas, where 10 male contestants duked it out for five slots, he performed Adele's retro soul track 'Rumor Has It.' It was a gutsy move. If you're going to try your hand -- er, voice -- at an Adele song on a vocal competition reality show, you better buh-ring it. Did JDA rise to the challenge?

Even after crashing the Grammys, being shut down by Jennifer Lopez, and spending the night in jail, Ukranian television personality Vitalii Sediuk says he isn't such a bad guy after all.
