BBC AMERICA TO AIR "ADELE: LIVE IN LONDON" AND THE "EE BRITISH ACADEMY FILM AWARDS" ON VALENTINE'S DAY

Staying in on Valentine's Day? Don't worry, BBC AMERICA's got you covered with two scintillating specials, providing an excellent mix of celebrities, fashion, movies and music. Kicking the evening off is the EE British Academy Film Awards, where Hollywood and Britain's biggest movie stars come together to honor 2015's best in film. Then, the highly-anticipated special with one of the biggest stars in the world, Adele: Live in London premieres in the U.S. The singer-songwriter will perform songs from her platinum-selling album, 25, as well as chat with BBC AMERICA's iconic talk-show host Graham Norton about her career and life. On Sunday, February 14, The EE British Academy Film Awards premieres at 7:30/6:30c followed by Adele: Live in London at 10/9c on BBC AMERICA.

Hosted by Stephen Fry, the EE British Academy Film Awards is broadcast exclusively in the U.S. on BBC AMERICA. Taking place at the Royal Opera House in London, Bridge of Spies and Carol lead with nine nominations each. Other films with multiple nominations include The Revenant (8), Mad Max: Fury Road (7), The Martian (6), Brooklyn (6), The Big Short (5), The Danish Girl (5), Ex Machina (5), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens (4). The nominees for the EE Rising Star Award include Brie Larson, Dakota Johnson, Bel Powley, John Boyega and Taron Egerton. This award is voted for by the British public and presented to an actress or actor who has demonstrated exceptional talent and promise.

In the one-hour special, Adele: Live in London, the artist is joined by her band to perform classic tracks, as well as songs from her new album 25. The show includes the first TV performance of Skyfall since the 85th Academy Awards, where Adele won the Oscar for Best Original Song for the theme tune to the 23rd James Bond film. Hosted by Graham Norton, Adele opens up about the pressure she felt to follow her hugely successful album 21 and pleasing her devoted fans, while also sharing a humorous side; going undercover to impersonate herself during an audition.

BBCAmerica.com's blog, Anglophenia, will be on the red carpet chatting with the stars at the EE British Academy Film Awards.
