Adele Performs on ‘SNL’

With her third album 25 flying off shelves, Adele arrived stateside to launch her U.S. promo tour. Last night, she served as musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” alongside host Matthew McConaughey. Dressed in black, the 27-year-old songstress performed her No. 1 single “Hello,” while accompanied by her band and a cellist. She returned later in the show to belt out the ballad “When We Were Young.”

Adele also inspired a hilarious skit starring McConaughey, Jay Pharoah, Aidy Bryant, and other cast members. A family sits down to Thanksgiving dinner, but the only thing that can stop them from fighting is Adele’s music.

You can get more of your Adele fill when she stops by “The Tonight Show” and “Today” this week.

25 is on track to sell at least 2.5 million copies in its first week, breaking the 2.42 million one-week record set by *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached in 2000.
