An emotional Adele tops the chart

Adele might have brought us to tears when she performed 'Someone Like You' live at the BRITs, but now the tables have turned.

Rich + Kat spoke to an emotional Adele on Sunday's Vodafone Freebees Big Top 40 Show and broke the news that she was No. 1, Adele was clearly very touched that so many fans had chosen to download her song off the back of the BRITs.

After her performance on Tuesday night, the album version of Adele's 'Someone Like You' steadily climbed the iTunes chart and even managed to crash in to the live top 10 before the show had even finished.

The live version of the song, which was recorded at the BRITs was made available to download after the ITV1 show and that version has also flown up our chart.

Rich + Kat counted down the Big Top 40 on Sunday and revealed that this week, Adele has three songs in our top ten, the two versions of 'Someone Like You' and 'Rolling In The Deep'.
