LONDON, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- British recording artist Adele pranked the participants of an Adele-impersonation contest by pretending she was one of them, a nanny named Jenny.

The "Hello" and "Rumor Has It" singer donned a fake nose and chin, and makeup that is different than what she usually wears, then adopted a different speaking voice for the stunt, which was orchestrated by comedian Graham Norton for the BBC. The video clip has been viewed more than 2.4 million times since Friday.

The real Adele chatted up her fellow contestants backstage and confided how anxious and even nauseous she felt about taking the stage.

When it was her turn to perform, she initially missed her cue, then went on to sing a perfect rendition of "To Make You Feel My Love," much to the shock and glee of the other participants, who began to sing along before applauding her.
