What’s better than Adele? Two Adeles, of course. That’s exactly what Seattle fans got -- for a few moments, at least -- when the British artist’s tour paused at the KeyArena. 

Adele noticed a lookalike in the crowd, the local drag artist Kristie Champagne (real name Kristopher Zello), and motioned for her to step up to the stage. “You look so amazing, oh my gosh,” Adele said to Champagne, who was wearing a hand-made, floor-length, dark sequined gown, similar to the singer’s garb on the night. “I really love that dress,” Adele noted as the pair had a cuddle.

Champagne told her hero that “you seriously changed my life for the better,” and explained that she impersonates the singer twice each week at Julia’s in Seattle. Champagne later tweeted of the experience, “Dreams do come true.”

Check out Champagne’s snaps from the night, and footage of the pair on stage.
