Adele Delivers Another Shiver-Inducing Performance on SNL
The appearance marked her first American TV performance since 2013
Adele delivered another knockout live performance of her new song “When We Were Young” when she appeared on Saturday Night Live this weekend.
The British singer – who released her comeback album, 25, on Friday – took the stage in a brown fringe dress, with nails to match.
The SNL performance marked the 27-year-old’s first live American TV performance as part of her 25 album push. Her last US television performance was singing “Skyfall” during the 2013 Oscars (where she also took home the award for Best Original Song).
Adele has been in the middle of a whirlwind tour for her new album. Earlier this month, she performed “Hello” at France’s NRJ Awards and took part in Adele at the BBC, a special hour-long program dedicated to the singer and featured an interview with Graham Norton.
Adele’s slew of appearances and performance will likely help with her album’s success – Billboard previously reported that CD and digital sales of 25 are expected to reach more than 3 million in the album’s first week.
