Thursday may be the official day of thanks, but we've got something to be very thankful for a day early: Adele!

Yes, on the 25th, the "25" singer stopped by to perform live in Studio 1A as part of TODAY's Citi Concert Series. Adele offered up a special treat, singing a moody and moving rendition of "Million Years Ago" from her new album.

And frankly, we were excited about it!

In fact, there was excitement all around:

And that's not all she offered us. The Grammy winner sat down with TODAY's Matt Lauer and opened up about her success — both musically and personally.

"It's pretty overwhelming, but it's incredible," she said of the response to her latest release.

But it's not overshadowing her real priority: son Angelo.

"My son comes everywhere with me," she explained. "He's the first person I see in the morning and last person I see at night. ... I make time for him, like I always have. That's one of the reasons I've been away [from the music industry] for so long. My kid is more important. My kid comes first; my music comes second."
