CBS Scoops Itself, As Adele Sings for Anderson Cooper

Tonight CBS will televise the Grammy Awards, which will feature a tribute to Whitney Houston, a new song from Bruce Springsteen and  the long-awaited return of Adele, who hasn’t sung since the Fall due to vocal chord surgery. Right before the Grammys CBS will air a new episode of “60 Minutes,” in which Anderson Cooper profiles the singer.

Friday morning “CBS This Morning” previewed the piece, and ended up scooping itself, as Adele sang “Rolling in the Deep” a capella for Cooper. In other words, Adele’s first public song was not on the Grammys, or even “60 Minutes,” but “CBS This Morning.”
