Here’s a little Ugly Betty news that’s delightful: British pop diva Adele, who recently won two Grammys (one of which was for Best New Artist) will guest-star and perform on the nighttime soap when it comes back in May. I couldn’t be more excited! She’s the exact type of star who needs to mingle with the likes of America Ferrera and Vanessa Williams and Eric Mabius. I say that, of course, with a disgusted look back toward other, less appealing guest stars. (Ahem, Lindsay Lohan, ahem.)
The press release from ABC dropped a few other delicious details! It said that Adele will perform at a photo shoot “that culminates into a surprise wedding.” The first question is: What’ll she perform?!? I was thinking that, of course, her people — or ABC brass — would to throw the singer’s mega-hit “Chasing Pavements” at us again. Don’t get me wrong, I love that song — but maybe she could sing one of her other love ballads, like the delicious “Make You Feel My Love,” perhaps? The problem is that both “Pavements” and “Feel My Love” (two of her biggest) aren’t necessarily happy love songs. If Adele is indeed performing at the impromptu wedding — as opposed to the preceding photo shoot — shouldn’t she be singing something positive about love? Maybe she’ll do “First Love” or “Daydreamer.” We can hope.
The other big question, of course: Who’s getting married?!? If I had to make a guess, I’d put my money on Daniel (Mabius) and Molly (Sarah Lafleur), the show’s couple that seems the most poised for a shotgun ceremony, seeing as how Molly is supposedly terminally ill.
But what do you think, PopWatchers? Who’s getting married on Ugly Betty? And what should Adele sing, should she be the musical guest for the nuptials?
