Watch Adele Host SNL
Adele was the host of Saturday Night Live last night, her first hosting gig after being on the show as a musical guest twice. During her opening monologue, she reflected on making her debut on the show back in 2008, when Tina Fey was still playing Sarah Palin, and joked about how much she swears, setting up a swear jar for herself. She also addressed her new album, which was rumored for a September release date at one point, that she says is not finished.
Despite not being the musical guest — that honor went to awards show staple H.E.R. — she did sing a medley of some of her songs during a The Bachelor sketch, including “Someone Like You,” “Hello,” “When We Were Young,” and “Rolling In The Deep.” She also appeared in sketches opposite Kate McKinnon (“Madame Vivelda”), Maya Rudolph (“Visiting Grandma”), and Pete Davidson (“Chad In A Haunted Mansion”) and was in commercials called “Ass Angel Jeans” and “Africa Tourism.”
Outside of Adele, H.E.R. debuted two new songs as the musical guest, “Damage” and “Hold On.” And Weekend Update was filled with music jokes, including mentions of Elton John, Phil Collins, and Nelly. Melissa Villaseñor did impressions of Stevie Nicks and Sia and the cast dressed up as the Village People to respond to Trump.
