Adele may have admitted to "panicking" about her comeback, but it appears she had no cause for concern. The Someone Like You singer, who released new single Hello on Friday, attracted praise from both fans and her peers – with many celebrities tweeting their reactions to the song.
While Kylie Minogue simply proclaimed, "Hallelujah…", Katy Perry suggested that the new single had made her emotional, sharing a picture of a pillow with wet patches where tears had fallen.
"Listens to 'hello' from @OfficialAdele once," Katy tweeted, adding a crying face emoji.
Meanwhile Fearne Cotton declared that the 27-year-old has "the voice of the century" in her tweet on Friday morning. "Adele is back," she wrote. "Looking insanely beautiful in her video and proving again she has the voice of the century."
Adele is believed to have worked with One Republic singer Ryan Tedder on her upcoming album 25, and the singer also heaped praise on the Grammy-award winner on Twitter.
"Pretty sure u just crashed YouTube @adele. Welcome back - & happy for you," Ryan's band One Republic tweeted.
The Voice judge Paloma Faith told her fans that Hello was definitely "worth the wait", however actress Chloe Grace Moretz appeared impatient about waiting any longer for new music.
"My god, I need @Adele's new album to be out already, so in love," Chloe tweeted.
The new release also attracted admiration from the likes of Robbie Williams, Olly Murs and Frankie Bridge.
"Oh…my…Adele! Just amazing!" the new mum tweeted, while Mark Wright declared: "And she does it again!! @Adele. Incredible!!"
Adele released her new single and music video on Friday morning, less than 24 hours after she announced the release date of her forthcoming album on her newly created Instagram account. The mother-of-one has slowly been teasing her return throughout the week, starting with a 30-second television advertisement on Sunday and continuing with an emotional statement about her "make-up" album.
