Live from New York, it's Adele!
The superstar singer, who is set to host Saturday Night Live on Oct. 24, shared a behind-the-scenes photo from rehearsals. In the picture, posted to Instagram on Wednesday, Oct. 21, Adele can be seen wearing a mask, following protocols amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. "3 days to go," Adele, who donned a jean ensemble during the SNL read-through, captioned her post.
The SNL Instagram account also shared the same photo, writing, "Adele is here!"
It was just a few days ago that the Grammy winner announced her upcoming appearance on the NBC sketch comedy show, noting she'll be hosting while H.E.R. takes the stage as the musical guest. "Bloooooody hellllll I'm so excited about this!! And also absolutely terrified!" Adele wrote in an Oct. 18 Instagram post. "My first ever hosting gig and for SNL of all things!!!!"
"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," the 32-year-old continued. "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?"
Adele, who has been taking time out of the spotlight in recent years, first appeared on SNL in 2008, where she performed her hit songs "Chasing Pavements" and "Cold Shoulder" off of her album 19.
"Itll be almost 12 years to the day that I first appeared on the show, during an election...which went on to break my career in America, so it feels full circle and I just couldn't possibly say no!" Adele told her fans. "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."
This will be Adele's first major TV appearance in quite some time. As fans may recall, the artist announced her split from husband Simon Konecki in April 2019 after about eight years together. The duo, who share son Angelo, said in a statement at the time that they "are committed to raising their son together lovingly." Adele officially filed for divorce in Sept. 2019.
