Adele arrived to the 2023 Grammy Awards — without ever walking on the red carpet.

The first glimpse of the "Easy on Me" singer was when she was already inside the Arena in Los Angeles on Feb. 5. When the camera panned to Adele, she looked spectacular in a burgundy gown that featured dramatic sleeves.

The singer exuded old Hollywood vibes with her perfectly blown out hair and makeup.

At one point during the opening monologue, host Trevor Noah surprised the singer by introducing her to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The comedian noted that they had never met and were each fans of one another.

The last time Adele attended the Grammys was in 2017, where she looked stunning in an olive Givenchy long sleeved gown. That year, she took home the album of the year trophy for "25."
