Stormzy has praised Adele’s Las Vegas show as “the best” he’s ever seen.
The 29-year-old rapper was in the audience when the ‘Easy on Me’ hitmaker kicked off her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace last weekend and he praised the ‘spectacular’ concert.
He gushed: “That was great. Honestly, probably the best show I’ve ever seen. And I’ve seen a lot of shows.
“In terms of the intimacy of it. It was very like… you’re in there, but it’s like a little theater, but it’s f****** Adele.
“It’s got all the glitz and glamor like a huge arena show, but it’s in a small place and it’s like, amazing. Beautiful and spectacular and glamorous… I was like kissing chefs.”
The pair are close friends, but the ‘Vossi Bop’ hitmaker recalled being “extremely starstruck” when Adele came to see him perform.
Speaking on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show,’ he said, “I’ve always been a huge fan. She came to my show in London and I was very, very starstruck. Extremely starstruck.
“I remember thinking, ‘Can I hug you? Oh, can I hug you again?’ “I’ve probably asked three or four times. She’s sweet.”
But despite their proximity, Stormzy doesn’t think a collaboration is at stake, as the “Hello” signer is in a different “league”.
Asked if he’d like a duet with Adele, he laughed and said, “Come on man, know what I’m talking about.
“I wish, I wish… you have to… there are leagues and levels. Are you kidding?”
The ‘Mel Made Me Do It’ singer recently met Taylor Swift at the MTV EMAs and was delighted to get some advice from the “beautiful” star.
He said: “I met Taylor, she’s beautiful. She’s amazing. She was just so beautiful. We all went off and everyone looked like, ‘How f****** nice is she?’
“We talked for about an hour. She was nice, had advice, you know when you’re just like, ‘Ah, you’re just amazing.’ I’m a fan.”
‘The Jonathan Ross Show’ airs on Saturday evenings (26.11.22) on ITV and ITV Hub.
