    First Time Host 

    The big news was shared on Instagram by the mother of one on Sunday, October 18, and completely caught fans by surprise.

    “Bloooooody hellllll I’m so excited about this!! And also absolutely terrified! My first ever hosting gig and for SNL of all things!!!!” the 32-year-old wrote.

    “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?”

    She continued, “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!”

    Adele also revealed that she’ll be on this week’s episode with musical guest H.E.R.

    “I am besides myself that H.E.R will be the musical guest!!” she shared.

    “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.”

    Music May be Coming

    Though she’s not scheduled to perform any music this week, Adele has reportedly been planning to release a new album this year. 

    The “Rolling in the Deep” songstress split from her husband, Simon Konecki, in April 2019 after two years of marriage, so fans have been anticipating a breakup record.

    However, with the coronavirus pandemic hitting back in March and so many projects being shifted around, it’s very possible she’s pushing back the release.

    But, some fans are speculating she’s going to surprise everyone and secretly drop her album later this month, following her time as SNL host. 

    As she mentioned in her Instagram post, the first time Adele appeared on SNL was back in 2008 right before the presidential election.

    She then returned in November 2015 following the release of her third album 25.
