    When I reach legendary concert promoter Danny Zelisko by cellphone, he’s just finished dinner and saying goodbye to “a bevy of beautiful women” who look after the hostess desk at one of his favorite restaurants.

    John Legend

    Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" came out of Legend's soulful pipes, and the crowd began cheering. With two hours till midnight, Legend sang his hits "Coming Home" and "Good Morning," but it was his intimate performance of new single "Dreams" that had the audience listening silently.

Legend pulled a smitten audience member onstage to slow dance, giving her a red rose to end the song as she returned to her seat.
