The voice hasn't gone anywhere.

Adele proved that right away during her performance at Sunday's Grammy Awards, where the British singer, and four-time winner, belted the opening notes of her hit "Rolling in the Deep" a capella.

Soon, though, the singer's band kicked in, adding some musical fire. Grinning throughout her song, and backed by a line of dancing backup singers and bright white lights, Adele received a standing ovation after she finished singing. The camera lingered as she smiled and soaked up the applause.

Moments earlier, the singer, 23, collected song of the year for the rousing tune. Adele, also up for the prestigious album and record of the year awards, also earned Grammys for best pop solo performance, best pop vocal album and best short form music video.





The live performance was the British pop star's first major public singing engagement since she was forced to cancel a North American tour and undergo throat surgery after suffering a hemorrhaged vocal cord.
