Brit Awards 2012: Adele celebrates 3 nominations with boyfriend Simon Konecki


Rolling in the BRITs: Adele celebrates getting three award nominations on night out with boyfriend Simon Konecki

She might have been out of the spotlight for a few months after having surgery on her throat but her absence isn't having any effect on her popularity.

And last night Adele celebrated getting three nominations at this year's BRIT Awards by heading out for a romantic evening with her boyfriend Simon Konecki.

The 23-year-old singer gave the official nominations ceremony a miss, instead choosing to spend the evening with Simon at Sid Owen's birthday party held at the Gilgamesh restaurant in London.
