Details surrounding Adele's third studio album are a closely guarded secret, but allegedly, she is planning to drop it in the first quarter of 2015. I can't see this performance happening to be honest.
It just reads like something they WANT to happen as opposed to it being set in stone 100%. I want Adele to come back as much as the next person but when she does, I feel she will let it be known herself. The same journo also announced Rihanna as a performer on this years X Factor. We are nearly midway through November and Rihanna has yet to announce new music officially.
