If she was terrified about her upcoming SNL stint, Adele sure isn’t showing it.
The “Hello” singer is slated to host the NBC show this Saturday (Oct. 24). And judging by a snap doing the rounds on social media, she’s leaving no margin for error.
Rocking the double-denim look with a black mask, the Londoner is captured swotting up for the big occasion. She’s a study of concentration, pouring through her SNL notes, pen at the ready.
This Saturday night marks Adele’s return to the stage after a years-long hiatus. “Bloooooody hellllll I’m so excited about this!! And also absolutely terrified!” she wrote on Instagram after the news was revealed.
H.E.R. will be the official SNL musical guest, and many are wondering out loud if Adele has something more up her sleeve. New music, perhaps? Or a pollical statement. For now, it’s all a wait-and-see prospect.
Five long years have passed since her last album, 25, was released. The multiple Grammy winner last commented in August on the timeline until when her next album will arrive. “I honestly have no idea,” was her blunt assessment.
