The 'T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)' singer says the 'Rolling In The Deep' star is a special artist.

Will.i.am has described Adele as "an anomaly" and says the 'Someone Like You' singer deserves all of her current success.

The '#willpower' singer says it was right that both the Grammy Awards and BRIT Awards this year focused heavily on Adele's success.

"Adele - She's an anomaly," Will.i.am told Capital's showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes. "And when those come up, it should always be about those type of artists.

Will.i.am attended the BRIT Awards 2012 last week, which saw Adele pick up both Best British Female and Best British Album for '21', and described the event as being "like music UK royalty".

Last week Adele's managed to spend her 21st week at number one on the US Billboard Top 200 with second album '21'.
