Before her appearance on Saturday Night Live in October, Adele was struggling to gain a foothold in the U.S., performing her U.K. hit "Chasing Pavements" on MTV2 in 2007. Following SNL, the London native is up for four Grammys – including best new artist – and she's trying to keep her newfound stateside fame in perspective. "A Grammy is music's Oscars," she wrote on her blog. "You win an Oscar when you give a performance of your life. And I find it hard to think of my album like that! I can't be like, 'Yeah I so deserve it,' that would make me sound like a pr–k."
