The big narrative going into this Sunday’s Grammy Awards is the return of Adele. Her slated performance marks a comeback from throat surgery and a disappearance from the public eye while her album and singles have continued to dominate charts around the world.
This Sunday, CBS’ 60 Minutes will lead into the Grammys telecast with an interview of Adele conducted by Anderson Cooper (last year in this same slot, he took on Lady Gaga).
In the first preview clip posted on the CBS News website, Adele walks Cooper through the surgery (which involved lasers) and her recovery period, which required her to be on vocal rest for the better part of two months. She communicated via pad and paper, as well as a series of phone apps that spoke for her.
The multiple apps were necessary, she said, because certain words simply had to get through. “The great thing is I love to swear,” she explained to Cooper. “Most of [the apps] you can’t swear on, but I found this one app where you can swear, so I’m still really getting my point across.”
