Adele shows off weight loss ahead of new TV role
- March 08, 2021
It will be the first time the singer has shown off her body transformation on television after losing an astonishing seven stone.
Despite previously stating that she would only be hosting the show, Adele has given a cheeky hint that she might sing after all, as she turned up the fun in a new video posted by the SNL Instagram account.
Adele appeared with official musical guest H.E.R. and comedian Kate McKinnon for a skit to promote the show from Studio 8h, the Mirror Online reports.
The Grammy award-winning singer wore a shimmering satin top and black trousers that showed her slender figure to the full as she wore a mask for the promo, which revolves around the confusion about H.E.R. singing and not Adele.
It starts with the London-born singer saying: “Hi! I’m Adele, and I’m hosting Saturday Night Live this week with musical guest H.E.R.”
McKinnon then asks: “Wait, her or her?” pointing first at H.E.R. and then Adele
Adele adds: “No, H.E.R.” gesturing toward the show’s singing guest, who replies: “Oh, wait, her?” and points to McKinnon.
The comedian then says: “Yes, me, it is I who will be musical guest this week.”

Adele has been looking forward to being the host and has said that this would mean she has come “full circle” with the show.
When announcing her appearance on Instagram, the chart topping songstress wrote: “Bloooooody hellllll I’m so excited about this!! And also absolutely terrified!
“My first ever hosting gig and for SNL of all things!!!!”
At the time, she said that there would be no singing performance from her as she wanted to concentrate on hosting.
Adele continued: “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 head first into the deep end with our eyes closed and hope for the best it’s 2020 right?”
