Adele’s comeback was met with laughter and cheers as she hosted Saturday Night Live, where she treated the audience to comedy skits and song performances.

Her appearance on the Oct 24 episode of the comedy show comes five years after her last album, 25. She teased her appearance in a tweet on Oct 19, which some fans thought of at first as a hint on the release of a new album.

At the show, the singer immediately answered fans’ burning question in the monologue section of the show: that her latest album is “not yet finished”.

Adele also poked fun at her weight loss, which first made the rounds in the news last May, as she celebrated her 32nd birthday.

”I know I look really, really different since you last saw me, ” she said. “But actually, because of all the Covid restrictions... I had to travel light and I could only bring half of me. And this is the half I chose.”

She’s got no new music yet, but Adele did spoil viewers with performances of her hits Hello, Rolling In The Deep, Someone Like You and When We Were Young during a parody of The Bachelor, where she played a contestant who kept breaking into song.

In another sketch, she could not help but break character while playing a middle-aged divorcee rattling off stereotypes about Africa.

During her monologue, Adele credited SNL for giving her a career break in the United States when she was the musical guest in 2008. The episode was highly rated as it starred Sarah Palin and Tina Fey.

At the time, she performed Chasing Pavements, and it would become her first hit in the US. Her debut album 19 also climbed the iTunes chart to the top spot.
