Opening with Hello, Adele performed a 16-song set for the crowd ahead of her upcoming performance at the Grammy Awards.

“I haven’t played in L.A. for years,” she told the crowd. “Sorry if it was a pain in the ass getting the tickets…I would have [charged] less, but my record label is paying for this.”

Meanwhile, actress Jennifer Lawrence, who was also at the star-studded gig, was spotted dancing to Adele's hit Rolling in the Deep, with Hunger Games co-star Woody Harrelson.

There were a number of famous faces in attendance at the gig, including Katy Perry, John Mayer, Josh Groban, Orlando Bloom, Rebel Wilson, Emma Stone, David Foster and the band HAIM.
