  • When she speaks its definetly English and a London accent at that.Singing though is mixed because she has a (superb) strong voice which i guess could have an element of American in there.
    If i could compare Adeles singing voice to another it would have to be Alison Moyet from 80's group Yazoo who again is English.

  • What a daft poll, both countries have a multitude of accents, so the question is more than a little vague.

  • Seriously, you're asking if what accent is more natural? Singing is very different from talking. Hence why most singers sound nothing like how they actually talk.

    IE, the Beatles.

    Oh and to answer your ridiculous question, I think the answer is C.

  • The British accent is awesome because you can be the biggest idiot on the planet and still sound brainy to any American who doesn't know better.

    There is a story, possibly apocryphal, of an experiment done with a London cab driver and a professor from New York University. People listened to a sample of them reading the same text and answered a questionnaire regarding what they could tell about the speaker. Although most people easily identified the cities the two men came from, they reversed th More..

    • @john1054 Only those 3 people in the UK that sound like Hugh Grant, most people under 24 sound like yardies from the deepest depths of kingston, everybody over the age of 24 slowly gets more regional as they get older..m'duck ;)

  • Nah, you can tell she's English

    However since Mick Jagger antics a bunch of British singers use what you could call an 'Atlantic' accent

  • Wasn't this question answered in the 60's during the British Invasion? It wasn't until later that you could tell the Beatles were English. They sang emulating their rock'n'roll heroes like Buddy Holly etc. who happened to be Americans.

    • @Roach1983 me too. most thought she was a Black southern woman when first hearing her on the radio. But we're not British so what do we know about US accents? Only the British people claim that she doesn't have US accent but a British accent in her singing, and I don't know if I buy their claims honestly.

  • when she sings, it's "pure" British, with no regional accent. When she speaks, there's a regional accent. But when she sings, that's not American

    • @the_MEK

      I beg to differ. That bit of her singing sounded just like a country singer from Nashville.

    • @the_MEK yeah, there is a lot of debate about her singing accent. If you're from the US, she sounds US (southern) and if you're from the UK I don't know how you guys perceive her, but I guess she sounds British to you, but we don't hear it. at times I'll hear one or 2 British inflections per song but that's about it.

  • The lazy way Americans talk I guess just allows more words to flow and rhyme together than usual. Wether it's more natural or not is debateable. It's certainly more confusing and difficult to decipher in everyday life though, especially those slack jawed, deep south redneck types.

    • @Zombiespit No offense but I've met a lot more people with a british accent that I couldn't understand than southern americans(U.S. south.. Honestly I don't get why everyone calls the U.S. america since this entire continent as well as the one to our south is all america)... Though I do see your point about some hillbilly southerners.

      Of course you really have to live around it for long enough to understand it. There are southern accents all over the U.S. because people move around a lot. I lea More..
