Her local drag doppelganger, Feminem, joined the star onstage at Adele’s first Aussie concert in Perth.

The British singer-songwriter kicked off her Australian tour on Tuesday night in front of a crowd of 65,000 at Perth’s Domain Stadium, breaking crowd size records for the venue.

And in the early moments of the show, Adele pulled Perth DJ and drag artist Feminem from the crowd to take an onstage selfie with the singer, to which Adele joked: “Oh, you look better than me, that’s not allowed!”

Feminem told Adele she regularly impersonated her in local venues, and took the mic to belt out the opening lines of Adele’s song “Rumor Has It”.

The drag queen told local radio station 6PR on Wednesday morning that Adele “caught her eye” in the first 15 minutes of the show.

“She gave me a bit of a wink and a wave and I was just having fun,” she said.

“When she came further and was walking down the catwalk, she stopped and she said ‘I want to meet you!’ A security guard grabbed me by the hand and whisked me off and that was that.

“After the show, I got mobbed by people who wanted selfies, coming up and saying hello!”

Adele will play two shows in Brisbane this weekend, on March 4 and 5 at the Gabba Stadium, before tour dates in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and New Zealand.

It’s the 28-year-old pop queen’s first visit to Australia (“I finally made it, it’s taken me 10 years,” she said in Perth) and the Aussie shows are her first stadium gigs.

“We’ve been rehearsing here… Very secretive despite all the f–king helicopters flying around,” Adele said on Tuesday night, referring to the intense media attention her arrival in Australia has attracted.

“I know I’ve never been here but maybe there was no big news yesterday? They revealed my dress and everything… I wanted it to be a surprise for you!”
