The 'Rumours Has It' singer joked that she would try not to make the show overrun during her speech.

Adele took a shot at the BRIT Awards bosses at last night's awards ceremony during her acceptance speech, referring to her being cut off early during the BRIT Awards back in 2012.

The 'Someone Like You' singer gave a short acceptance speech via video message during the BRIT Awards 2013 after winning Best British Single with Capital FM for her James Bond theme 'Skyfall', and make a joke about host James Corden being forced to cut her Best Album speech short last year to stop the show overrunning.

"Hello everyone. Thank you so much for this BRIT Award, it means a lot, thank you very much," Adele began in her speech last night (20th February). "Sorry I can't be with you tonight, I'm in LA rehearsing for The Oscars!

"I won't keep you too long because I don't want to interrupt the Best Album speech at the end of the night, but I love you all, thank you so much," the 'Rolling In The Deep' star pointedly aded. "I can't wait to come home and see you.

"I'm not living here by the way, just in case you think that, I'm coming home!"

The 'Rumour Has It' singer will remain in Los Angeles until this coming weekend where she will perform 'Skyfall' live at the Oscars 2013, where she is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song.

Earlier this week BRITs chairman David Joseph said he wanted to "rewrite the wrong" of cutting Adele off back in 2012, and admitted he often questions the decision to stop the UK singer mid-speech during her Best Album acceptance speech.

Adele will perform at the Oscars 2013 this coming Sunday 24th February.
