Adele has always wanted to meet "Someone Like You," Dwayne Johnson.

And now, thanks to Trevor Noah and the 2023 Grammys, she has.

At the top of the show Sunday night, host Noah approached Adele's table and said that while he didn't have somebody called "Dwayne Johnson" there, he did have somebody called "The Rock."

To Adele's surprise and delight, Johnson himself had walked up behind her seat, and greeted her with a huge smile and a hug.

As the camera panned away, Johnson, 50, could be seen taking a seat next to the 15-time Grammy winner, 34.

Adele is up for seven awards at the 64th annual ceremony— namely album of the year, for which Beyoncé is also nominated.

The two last appeared in the category together in 2017, when Adele took home the prize for 25, but famously dedicated her win to Beyoncé.
