The 'Rolling In The Deep' star says she would love to perform on stage with the '4' singer.

Adele has named Beyonce as the artist she would most like to perform a duet with at some point in the future.

The 'Someone Like You' singer says 'Love On Top' star Beyonce is one of her idols, and says she admires how the new mum has approached her music career. 

"I always wanted to do a duet with Etta James, but sadly she passed, so I would probably say Beyonce because she's one of my ultimate favourites as well," Adele told French radio station NRJ. 

"I"ve been listening to her since I was about 11. I adore her," Adele explained. "I love everything she stands for. 

"I think her work as an artist and a singer is enviable, in terms of the length of her career and how she's grown and grown."

The '21' singer went on to say that most of her inspirations come from old school music meaning the majority of her idols are no longer alive.

Adele has also confirmed plans to release a brand new song by the end of 2012, while claiming her next album is around two years away from being released.
