Dwayne Johnson Opens Up About Surprising Adele At The Grammys

As for how the whole thing came about, when Dwayne officially confirmed his attendance at the Grammys, the show’s executive producer Ben Winston was the one who thought about surprising Adele. Winston recalled that Adele previously invited the actor to her One Night Only concert special in Los Angeles, but he wasn’t able to attend, leading to this special surprise.

“We were trying to figure out something to do that was going to be fun and surprise her, and we had kicked around ideas all week,” Johnson explained. “The key to a surprise like that is to actually keep it a surprise. Myself and the Grammys went to great lengths to make sure that Adele was authentically surprised in the moment, and she was.”

And, as the cherry on top of an already special night, the actor also got the opportunity to present Adele with the Grammy for Best Pop Solo Performance for “Easy on Me.”

“And talk about the universe meeting our friendship halfway: I get up onstage and I open that Grammy envelope and it said ‘Adele.’ So that’s why I was able to say, ‘Get up here best friend, Adele!’ It was such a special night,” he said. “And she’s such a special iconic brilliant inspiring artist who has inspired a generation and who will continue to inspire generations to come. I love that woman.”

Sounds like the start of a very fruitful friendship!
