Hello singer Adele wowed audiences with her performance when the show aired in October last year.

Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman will front the BBC One and BBC Music show.

The music special will see Michael performing with his band, as well as a thirty-piece orchestra.

He will sing some of his hits but will also perform some songs from his new album, Nobody But Me, for the first time on UK television.

Michael said: "I loved Adele at the BBC and I'm so excited and honoured to have been invited by the BBC to do my own show for them. I'm sure it will be a blast."

Claudia said: "When you are asked 'would you like to interview Michael Bublé and watch him sing?' you don't say no. You change your whole life to accommodate this request. I can't wait."

The show featuring Adele was nominated for a Bafta award and also saw the singer going undercover as "Jenny", amid a bunch of Adele impersonators.

The YouTube clip of Adele's efforts as a look-alike has already had more than 51 million views.

The show will be recorded in October and broadcast in November. Fans can find details to register for tickets on bbc.co.uk/music.
