Adele invites Adele drag impersonator on stage
Adele’s 25 tour has seen proposals, accidental smooches, empowering speeches, and tender memorials, but this week’s stop in Seattle saw something new when Adele invited an Adele drag impersonator on stage during the show.
The “Hello” star noticed her doppelgänger in the crowd and brought the impersonator — aka Kristie Champagne (née Kristopher Zello) — up to chat. “You look so amazing, oh my gosh,” Adele said. “I really love that dress.”
The two went back and forth for a bit when Champagne told the singer, “You seriously changed my life for the better. I’ve been impersonating you twice a week every Friday and Saturday.”
After the show, Champagne shared photos of her and Adele and wrote, “That moment you meet adele…your idol and inspiration and you make the same dumb face you always make,” with the hashtag “#dreamsdocometrue.”
