Adele sings on ‘Saturday Night Live’ after all


Despite multiple assurances that she would focus on acting when appearing as a host on “Saturday Night Live,” Adele broke out in the song several times during a parody on “The Bachelor” or so. half an hour in the show.The skit found Adele, who was billed as her superstar, interrupting every single dating scenario by breaking into solo pianist versions of one of her hits – “Hello,” “Set Fire to the Rain,” and others – to the annoyance of other women.

The skit ends with a break from a final script by erupting into a brief but voice-filled finale of “Someone Like You,” stepping out into the small audience’s studio as they screamed and clapped. “Catch me next week on ‘Love Island’! she cried with a smile at the end.

Adele even said during her opening monologue that she would not be singing on the show, explaining that her long-awaited follow-up to her 2015 hit album “25” is not over, “and I’d rather put on wigs. , have a glass of wine or six and see what happens! The booming R&B singer HER was the musical guest of the evening – “I love her so much,” gushed Adele in an Instagram post – and indeed was excellent on both her performances.
