The guest list for Adele’s ‘One Night Only’ concert was a who’s who of A-listers. Drake, Selena Gomez, Lizzo, and more celebrities got front row seats to Adele’s comeback.
There were more stars in the aisles of Adele‘s CBS special than there are in the skies over Los Angeles. Adele One Night Only saw the 33-year-old singer take the stage at L.A’s. Griffith Observatory, performing for a crowd that includes such A-list celebrities like Gabrielle Union, her husband Dwyane Wade, and James Corden, just to name a few. “I flew all across the country just to be here,” said Tyler Perry in Entertainment Weekly’s preview special.
