The superstar just revealed she’s hosting ‘SNL’ on October 24, with H.E.R. as the musical guest.
Adele is getting ready to take the Saturday Night Live stage.
Yesterday, a new teaser promo featuring Adele, tomorrow’s musical guest H.E.R., and SNL vet Kate McKinnon was released. And in the clip, Adele stunned in a sleek, long-sleeved velvet top and matching pants courtesy of Acne Studios; long, neutral-hued nails; and her signature cat-eye makeup while announcing her upcoming hosting stint and introducing H.E.R. as the show’s performer.
Toward the end of the clip, and after laughing over who exactly is H.E.R., McKinnon spoke in an impromptu British accent, to which Adele responded with an American accent.
“Oh, my God, no worries girlfriend,” quipped Adele in her best Valley Girl impression.
Adele is stepping back into the spotlight in a major way this month. The superstar announced on Instagram that she will be hosting Saturday Night Live on October 24. Accompanying Adele is musical guest H.E.R., and it’s clear that the “Hello” singer is very, very excited about her latest gig.
“Bloooooody hellllll I’m so excited about this!! And also absolutely terrified! My first ever hosting gig and for SNL of all things!!!!,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’ve always wanted to do it as a stand alone moment, so that I could roll up my sleeves and fully throw myself into it, but the time has never been right. But if there was ever a time for any of us to jump head first into the deep end with our eyes closed and hope for the best it’s 2020 right?”
The singer also reflected on the important history she has with Saturday Night Live. “It’ll be almost 12 years to the day that I first appeared on the show, during an election,” she explained, “which went on to break my career in America, so it feels full circle and I just couldn’t possibly say no! I am besides myself that H.E.R will be the musical guest!! I love her SO much I can’t wait to melt into a flaming hot mess when she performs, then confuse myself while I laugh my arse off in between it all.”
It seems likely that Adele fans all over the world will be elated that the performer will be back on our screens after what feels like the longest hiatus of all time.
