ADELE has pulled out of her planned UK show – days after expelling her US performances.
The singer has told event organizers she will be performing live at the O2 Arena in London.
But an announcement about her lead role was delayed after Adele, 33, revealed she is postponing her Las Vegas gigs.
Days later, she pulled the plug, leaving British bosses scrambling to find alternative arrangements for the ceremony on February 8.
A source said yesterday: “Adele was confirmed to perform the night, but has now withdrawn – this is a huge blow to the organisers.
“They are talking to her team to see if she can appear by videolink.
“It was a huge headache but they wanted her involved in any way she would agree to.

“Now they also have to find someone to claim her prize – if she wins.
“And some of the big names have said no.
Names mentioned include Sam Smith, and even Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa – both against Adele for the award – but it all looks unlikely. They also approached Stormzy in the hope of being able to convince him.”
The Sun on Sunday revealed that Adele will be singing at her first British concert in five years. The source continued: “It appears there are concerns about another backlash if she performs on Brits so soon after stopping her Vegas shows at the last minute.
“Conceivably that decision caused a lot of frustration and subsequently, Adele and her team decided to scrap her performance in England.”
