WATCH: Adele jokes about weight loss, sings hits on ‘Saturday Night Live’

/ 04:26 PM October 25, 2020

Adele’s comeback was met with laughter and cheers as she hosted “Saturday Night Live,” where she treated the audience to comedy skits and song performances.

Her appearance on the Oct. 24 (Oct. 25 in Manila time) episode of the comedy shoe comes five years after her last album, “25.” She teased her appearance in a tweet on Oct. 19, which some fans thought of at first as a hint on the release of a new album.

At the show, the singer immediately answered fans’ burning question in the monologue section of the show: that her latest album is “not yet finished.”

Adele also poked fun at her weight loss, which first made the rounds in the news last May, as she celebrated her 32nd birthday.

”I know I look really, really different since you last saw me,” she said. “But actually, because of all the COVID restrictions…I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me. And this is the half I chose.”

She’s got no new music yet, but Adele did spoil viewers with performances of her hits “Hello,” “Rolling in the Deep,” “Someone Like You” and “When We Were Young” during a parody of “The Bachelor,” where she played a contestant who kept breaking into song.

In another sketch, she could not help but break character while playing a middle-aged divorcee rattling off stereotypes about Africa.

During her monologue, Adele credited “SNL” for giving her a career break in the United States when she was the musical guest in 2008. The episode was highly rated as it starred Sarah Palin and Tina Fey.

At the time, she performed “Chasing Pavements,” and it would become her first hit in the U.S. Her debut album “19” also climbed the iTunes chart to the top spot.

Adele said earlier this year that she would have an album out by September, but it seems fans will have to content themselves with her hilarious “SNL” performance for now. JB
