Adele Greets a ‘Mini Adele’ in the Audience at Her Las Vegas Residency Show! See the Viral Video

The British singer posed with the adorable child dressed exactly like her while singing 'When We Were Young'

We didn’t think it was possible to love Adele anymore, but these days, the 36-year-old English songbird gives us reason to! The famed singer, known for hits like “Someone Like You,” “Hello,” “Set Fire to the Rain,” “When We Were Young,” “Water Under the Bridge” and more, is currently in the midst of her “Weekends With Adele” residency in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace — and on June 16, she made one very special fan a happy little girl.

Adele meets a young fan in the audience dressed exactly like her

While performing “When We Were Young,” the singer came across a young girl sporting a mini version of a Schiaparelli dress she had worn back in 2021.

Adele spotted the little girl, named Valentina, and proceeded to approach her adorable mini-me. “Hi! I love your dress,” the singer greeted the young girl before instructing her to turn around to take a photo together. The best part? Adele barely missed a beat!

Valentina’s mother shared the up-close video to her Instagram account, captioned, “Adele stopped to meet ‘mini Adele’ Needless to say Valentina and I had our dream come true! Unforgettable night with my little love #adele #reels #lasvegas #weekendswithadele #weekend45 #adeleadkins”

Inside Adele’s Las Vegas residency

The singer’s Las Vegas residency was originally announced back in 2021 and began in 2022. It was originally set to begin in January of 2022, but delays pushed it back to debut in November of that year.

I’m so sorry, but my show ain’t ready,” she said in a video posted to her social media announcing the delay. “We’ve tried absolutely everything that we can to put it together in time and for it to be good enough for you, but we’ve been absolutely destroyed by delivery delays and COVID – half my crew are down with COVID, they still are – and it’s been impossible to finish the show…I can’t give you what I have right now.”

Since the show’s debut, the singer has extended it twice. In October of 2023, she shared to her social media:

This residency, these shows have changed my life. I desperately needed to fall back in love with performing live again, and I have. I needed to reconnect with my songs and remember what they mean to me, and I have! Being on stage over the last year so up close and personal with an audience again after all these years has been a truly extraordinary restorative experience that I’ll never forget. All the hilarious, soulful, wild and heartbreaking interactions we’ve had are banked in my mind for life. The looks on your faces, seeing you laugh and cry together singing your hearts out and hoarding bags of confetti. All the simi dolls, friendship bracelets, flowers, facetime calls and flags. It’s crazy how joyful a show full of sad songs can be!! I’ve felt so much and learned so much about myself and you. It’s humanized everything I thought was scary. Mostly though – it’s just made me realize how much I really enjoy being on stage, that I’m bloody good at it and that it is 100% where I belong!

So let’s go one last time before I turn into a showgirl forever! Love you and I’ll see you on the other side soon x”

Adele’s shows have been known for their various audience interactions, from her mini-me look-alikes during her residency to run-ins with old school teachers. Regardless, fans can always be sure they are in for a treat during one of her concerts.
