Aretha Covers Adele On Letterman

Yesterday some of you had strong opinions about Aretha Franklin’s cover of Adele’s Rolling In The Deep. Last night Franklin performed the track live on Letterman, after which she talked about her early days and missing out on performing on the Ed Sullivan Show, which was filmed in the studio that is now home to Letterman.

UPDATE: The woeful backup singer who doesn’t know the words is Cissy Houston.
