Over the weekend, Adele won her very first Emmy Award in the category of Outstanding Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) during the 2022 Creative Arts Emmys for her CBS special One Night Only.

The musical artist took to Instagram to showcase her appreciation where she shared a number of snaps of her posing with the award, saying “Bloody hell I’m pleased as punch! Thank you @mrbenwinston for dropping this round to me this afternoon!! Trust me to have an ego.”

“Thank you so much @televisionacad, I’m so so honoured to receive this,” she continued. “Big up to everyone involved. @griffithobservatory thank you for letting me sing up on your mountain and big love to all the other nominees x.” 

Fans were quick to share their praise for the singer with one commenting, “DESERVED” and another writing, “OSCAR, GRAMMY & NOW EMMY WINNER, ADELEGEND YOU DID IT!”

That wasn’t the only win for Adele on the night as her special show won in all of the five categories it was nominated for, including Outstanding Lighting Design, Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Variety Series or Special, and Outstanding Directing For A Variety Special. Pretty Impressive!

In light of her new win, it now means the award-winning songwriter is one step closer to EGOT status. With an Emmy, several Grammys and an Oscar on her belt, all she needs now is a Tony and she’ll have the full collection and join the elite group of artists who have managed to win all four.

This very select group only includes 17 members to date, with Jennifer Hudson being the latest member to join after winning a Tony award in June for producing the musical A Strange Loop. Other members include Mel Brooks, Whoopi Goldberg and John Legend.

Adele was awarded multiple Grammys for her highly successful albums and an Oscar in 2013 for Best Original Song for “Skyfall.” It really is a banger!

The Emmy-award winning special was filmed in Los Angeles at Griffith’s Observatory and marked the singer’s first live performance in six years. Including many of her signature hits, Adele even debuted some of the songs from her most recent album, 30.

Presented by Oprah Winfrey, it aired in November of last year and was the most-watched special since the Oscars, and to be fair we’re not surprised one bit!

Sadly, Adele couldn’t physically be at the event to collect her award in person, however, we can expect to see much more of her over the coming years with her working hard on multiple projects, in particular, her Las Vegas residency which is expected to open soon.

We can’t wait to see what she does next!
