And the fact that they celebrated that and 1.2 million of them went out and bought it the first week and it became my first UK No. 1 album, it is absolutely unbelievable.’’ The Grammy-winner rewarded her fans at the event by performing songs including her hit from the album, ‘‘We Are Never Getting Back Together.’’
