Adele Makes History

Adele's performance of "Someone Like You" at the 2011 VMAs was a breath of fresh air. Let's face it -- she always seems to put most current female singers to shame.

Luckily for the British singer, that performance resulted in "Someone Like You" jumping from No. 19 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. This is the biggest jump in the chart's history without releasing a single.

"Someone Like You" was released on Februray 22, 2011 and has sold 275,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Adele's first single from 21, "Rolling in the Deep," has sold 5 million copies and is currently the top-selling song this year.
