Queen Adele is ready for her close up!
Adele made her SNL debut last night and simply wowed with her comedic skills and throwback performances of some of her biggest hits.
In her opening monologue, the songstress jokes about her highly anticipated music comeback, stating: “Now I know there’s been a lot of chatter about me just being the host, like ‘why isn’t she the musical guest?'”
She continued: ” There’s a couple of reasons, my album is not finished and I’m scared to do both. I’d rather just put on some wigs, have a glass of wine or six, and just see what happens.”
When Adele first announced she would be hosting SNL, late last week, the new’s sparked speculation that she would also be dropping new music.
Adele then went on to poke fun at her recent weight loss, saying: ” And I know I look really, really different since you last saw but actually because of all the COVID restrictions and the travel bans, I had to travel light and could only bring half of me and this is the half that I chose.”
The Rolling In The Deep singer also dedicated the show to frontline workers.
“I want to say a genuine sincere thank to the frontline workers who are here down in the audience […] I give it up to you and give it up to yourselves as well,” she says.
After killing it with her opening monologue, the singer-songwriter took part in an array of hilarious skits and even sang some of her music hits like Someone Like You and Hello.
Adele was also joined by R&B goddess H.E.R., who was the musical guest of the evening. The songstress gave sensational performances of her new singles Damage and Hold On.
