ALL HAIL THE QUEEN, Y’ALL! Adele dropped by ‘Saturday Night Live’ to casually sing her freaking face off, kicking things off with her mega huge hit, ‘Hello.’ Watch the incredible performance now!
Is she even, like, human? Adele, 27, served as musical guest on the Nov. 21 episode of Saturday Night Live, and she literally is causing us to question whether she is of this realm. For her first of two performances, the golden-throated beltress rocked her anthemic single, “Hello,” off her new album, 25, and it is, frankly, in-freaking-credible. Check it out!
Rocking an all black ensemble, Adele took to the SNL stage in her typically understated manner, which made her ridiculous belting all the more outrageous. She topped off her look with her auburn tresses sleek and straight and, truly, she has never looked (or sounded) more gorgeous.
To say what is perhaps the biggest understatement of the year, Adele is having a serious moment right now. She dropped 25 on Nov. 20, and it is already basically the biggest album of the year (in a time when Justin Bieber and One Direction just dropped new albums, that’s saying something). While we can’t know just how well the album will do until her first-week sales are announced, it’s safe to assume it’s going to basically destroy the charts.
If the album wasn’t enough, though, Adele also just performed at a sold out (obviously) show at Radio City Music Hall on Nov. 17, and basically shattered worldly expectations about what it means to be talented. Like, seriously, she has to be kidding, right?
Anyhow, Miss Adele is basically slaying our existence right now, and we cannot say we are even slightly mad about it.
What did you think of Adele’s first SNL performance of the night, HollywoodLifers? Is this your favorite rendition of “Hello,” so far?
