They lose their damn minds.
Beneath lyrics of regret about shoulda, coulda, woulda having it all, Adele is a silly and elusive creature. She pranked her look-alikes during her upcoming BBC special, and saw it just as fit of an opportunity to hoodwink her fans as well.

Adele: Live in London airs Sunday, Feb. 14 at 10 p.m. on BBC America after the EE British Academy Film Awards. Launch the gallery at the top of the page to view photos of Adele at the 2013 Oscars.
