There are singers, and then there is Adele.

No vocalist from this modern generation has made more of a universal impact on pop culture than the "Hello" singer, who recently — almost impossibly — shattered the record for highest first week sales of all time with her latest studio album, 25. And while her emotional, earnest songwriting is renowned in and of itself and her wicked personality is undeniably charming, it all comes down to one key component: that soulful voice.

From "Chasing Pavements" to "Rolling In The Deep" and "Someone Like You" all the way up to "When We Were Young," Adele has stayed consistent in supplying spine-tingling, soul-shaking live performances with her powerful pipes. To showcase her talent, we've rounded up just some of her most immense performances.
