Alan Carr has revealed that Dame Emma Thompson was the biggest giveaway regarding the state of his vocal talents when he gave an impromptu performance at Adele’s ITV concert, describing his singing as ‘rubbish’.
Last month, the multi-award-winning artist’s programme An Audience With Adele was released, as she sang to a star-studded audience to promote her latest album 30.
At one point, the Easy On Me singer was reduced to tears when she was reunited unexpectedly with her English teacher from school, prompting her to call Alan to the stage while she was having her make-up touched up.
On Friday’s edition of Good Morning Britain, the comedian recalled the hilarious moment, insisting that it wasn’t planned as he belted out a rendition of Make You Feel My Love that had stars such as Stormzy joining in.
‘I wasn’t aware that you are a popular recording artist,’ GMB host Ben Shephard said, as he revealed that the record label had prevented them from showing the clip on-air.
‘We’re worried that they think that you might affect her sales because you did such a great rendition,’ he said, as Charlotte Hawkins added: ‘Or maybe they’re hoping it will never see the light of day again!’
In Alan’s opinion, analysing Love Actually star Emma’s dance moves was the best way of telling how well he fared in Adele’s shoes.
‘Can I just say, I knew I was rubbish because Emma Thompson stopped dancing!’ he remarked.
‘She was like this all the way through like a crazy aunt at a wedding. When I got up there, she was like, I’ll sit down.’
Emma’s dancing was one of the undisputed highlights of the special, with the Oscar winner moving enthusiastically with no inhibitions, encouraging other audience members to get up out of their seats.
Viewers were absolutely loving her moves, with one tweeting at the time: ‘Emma Thompson dancing like an aunt on Christmas Day after too many sherries!!’
‘LOVING Emma Thompson dancing like a lunatic. Absolute MOOD!’ another wrote fondly.
Alan recently spoke out against claims his singing at the Adele concert was set up, saying he was ‘horrified’ to be called to the stage.
‘People said it was such a set-up, but you’d think I would learn the words if I was going to sing at The Palladium with one of the biggest stars in the world,’ he told Zoe Ball on her Radio 2 breakfast show.
‘But yeah my phone just exploded when it happened. I knew I couldn’t sing, but I couldn’t sing that bad!’
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
