This NYC subway singer's percussion-aided rendition of Adele's "Someone Like You" is nothing short of brilliant. He doesn't sing it like the Queen of Heartbreak herself, but it's so undeniably good that his audience has no choice but to reward him with a round of applause.

This song could probably make the hardest dude cry buckets of tattooed tears and this guy nailed it.
