MTV reports that during the concert, Adele told the crowd: “I feel like I owe 90 percent of my career to [Winehouse]. Because of her, I picked up a guitar and because of her, I wrote my own songs. The songs I got signed on were the songs that I wrote completely on my own – if it wasn’t for her, that wouldn’t have happened.”
Adele continued: “I used to see her on TV or in magazine shoots with a pink electric guitar and I used to think she was the coolest motherfucker on the face of the Earth. I’m obviously completely happy with all the music that she left behind because it’s all genius. But every day I wish I could hear a new song from her.”
The singer then performed her cover of Bob Dylan‘s ‘Make You Feel My Love’, dedicating the rendition to Winehouse. Watch footage below.
