Adele delivered another glowing celebrity endorsement forSpanx when she admitted to Today's Matt Lauer that during the Grammy's, she layered up on the control-wear:

I had three or four pairs of Spanx on that night but I loved [the dress]. I actually had another dress made and I ended up passed out in it. It had a corset and I was like, 'I can't wear that,' so I ended up wearing this instead.
But she managed to shed a couple pairs of Spanx before she performed that night probably because, you know, air is important to singers. The whole interview aired last night, but catch the teaser trailer above.
