The 'Rolling In The Deep' star has received high words of praise from the music mogul.

Adele's huge global success has been described as an "incredible story" by Simon Cowell.

The talent show mastermind has called the 'Someone Like You' singer one of the "most down to earth" people he has met and claims she has made an impact in the industry by going back to basics.

He told The Sun: "Adele is an incredible story. You wouldn't have predicted this years ago when we were such an image-infatuated business.

"Here is somebody who has done everything her own way, gone back to basics and achieved this incredible success. She's one of the most down-to-earth people you'll meet — and she hasn't changed a bit."

The singer has already had an amazing 2012 after scooping six awards at the Grammys as well as two BRIT Awards last month.

Meanwhile, the singer is rumorued to have recruited security staff at her new mansion after suggesting the property is haunted.
