Of course, it doesn't come as a complete surprise that Adele will be honored in such a fashion.

After all, it's been revealed that her 21 album has just been named Amazon's best-selling album...of all time!

The 2011 release, featuring such hits as "Rolling in the Deep" and "Someone Like You," has sold more than 28 million copies around the globe.

Susan Boyle's I Dreamed a Dream came in second while the original Broadway soundtrack for the musical Wicked placed third.

Oh, and as if being No. 1 wasn't enough, Adele's debut album, 19, is ranked No. 8 on the list.
