Sir Elton John has been raving about Adele following her dramatic Oscar win at the Academy Awards this weekend, describing the singer as 'perfect.'
The legendary musician heaped praise on 24-year old Londoner Adele after she picked up the Best Original Song award for 'Skyfall' at the 85th Annual Academy Awards in Hollywood on Sunday (Feb 24).
Speaking to reporters later that evening at his annual AIDS Foundation Academy Awards after-party, Elton admitted that Adele was the complete package because she's 'imperfect.'
“She's authentic. She doesn't lip-sync, she comes on and she sings, she's the real deal,” he gushed. “She's not slick, she's human, she's imperfect, she's what every entertainer should be.”

The 65-year old 'Rocket Man' singer was also quick to praise Scottish star Emeli Sande following her success at the Brits – and predicted the singer would enjoy even greater success in 2013.
Adele's win at the Oscar's tops off a successful 12-months, during which she gave to her first child, a son, with boyfriend Simon Konecki – who also has a daughter with his ex-wife.
