Adele Is on the Saturday Night Live Set Ahead of Her Hosting Gig: '3 Days to Go'
The “Hello” singer is hosting the popular late-night NBC sketch show this Saturday, Oct. 24
Earlier this week, the "Hello" singer, 32, first revealed that she would be hosting the popular NBC show this upcoming Saturday, Oct. 24, for the first time ever.
"Bloooooody hell I’m so excited about this!! And also absolutely terrified! My first-ever hosting gig and for SNL of all things!!!!" she wrote in a post on Instagram. "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. But if there was ever a time for any of us to jump headfirst into the deep end with our eyes closed and hope for the best it’s 2020 right?"
"It'll 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!" she continued. "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. See you next week ♥️🤞🏻."
Then on Thursday, the Grammy Award-winner shared a photo of herself on set, reading over the script and preparing for her big hosting debut.
"3 days to go ♥️," she excitedly captioned the photo, which showed the star rocking a Canadian tuxedo, a black face mask, and a pair of boots.
