Adele fans hail her a 'comedy legend' for her SNL hosting stint


Adele sent her fans wild as she returned to Saturday Night Live to host this week’s show, 12 years after she made her debut as a musical guest.

Excited viewers flooded Twitter with praise for the powerhouse, 32, as they hailed her a ‘comedy legend’ and tipped her to win an Emmy award for poking fun at her seven-stone weight loss on the variety series, which saw her open the programme by joking that she brought ‘half of me’.

The micro-blogging site also exploded with cheeky posts demanding the singer to release her hotly-anticipated fourth studio album after she admitted she hadn’t finished her project and would rather ‘have a glass of wine or six and see what happens’.

Kicking off the show with a bang, the Hello hitmaker immediately referenced her slimmed-down appearance by stating: ‘I know I look different than when you last saw me, but because of the COVID restrictions I had to travel light and bring only half with me, so this is the half I chose.’  

Social media users commented on her new look – which has reportedly been a result of following a 1,000 calorie a day diet and upping her exercise – as they wrote: ‘Adele really said “New body, who dis?”

‘snl might be over but i will never stop talking about how much adele SERVED tonight. Tbh, i still cant accept this slim version of Adele.

‘I will take any opportunity to celebrate Adele; I just hope we reserve the same obsessive enthusiasm for her new music as we do her weight loss. #AdeleOnSNL.

‘The gworls were waiting for Adele’s voice to take a hit cause of the weight loss… Think again b***h. Adele lost weight and became a bad b, love to see it.’ (sic)

In one skit, the media personality played a contestant on The Bachelor, breaking into song and irritating the other contestants, while in another sketch, she transformed into a ghost and haunted a mansion while comedian Pete Davidson followed her around.

Fans expressed their delight at seeing the usually low-key musician take a career risk as they tipped her to scoop an Emmy award for her fun-filled hosting stint.

Adele – who has been nominated for both Daytime and Primtime Emmys for musical performances in 2016 – caused Twitter users to pen: ‘She is coming for the EMMY of Best Actress in Comedy Series. ADELE ON SNL.

'New body, who this?' Social media users commented on her new look - which has reportedly been a result of following a 1,000 calorie a day diet and upping her exercise

‘I miss you already @adele. you were genius. comedy legend. I love you. Adele potentially adding Emmy winner to her list of accolades. We love to see it.’ (sic)

Others called for the film industry to feature her in a film as they added: ‘Adele was bored and said I want an Emmy, so now we give her an Emmy. I don’t make the [email protected] #EGOT @SNL Emmy Grammy Oscar Tony easily in her future !’ 

‘Adele is actually giving me Oscar & Emmy winning vibes right now. Somebody put her in a movie.’ (sic) 

Elsewhere in the show, the critically-acclaimed songstress let down her fanbase by revealing she hasn’t completed her album yet, which had already been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The songwriter explained: ‘My album isn’t finished and I’m too scared to do both. I’d rather just put on some wigs and this is all mine by the way. Have a glass of wine or six and see what happens.’ 

Supporters didn’t hide their disappointment as one funny meme perfectly encapsulated their reaction to the news by displaying an angry Adele crushing a wine glass, alongside the caption: ‘My album is not finished’. 

‘I’ve never been so heartbroken, Adele’, another sad fan simply penned, while a third wrote: ‘This was honestly such a tease! Her and the producers/writers know how much we want new Adele music lol #AdeleOnSNL #SNL.’ (sic)

Meanwhile, a confused social media user questioned: ‘Guys, it’s starting to sink in that the moment is over and we’d have to wait again for miss maam Adele. The album is not finished. Maybe early next year? Is she lying or did we clown really hard we’re having a hard time differentiating reality from fantasy?’ (sic)

Others focused their attention on counting down the days until she releases new music, five years after she dropped her third album 25. 

They said: ‘Adele new album coming for blood and to end everyone’s career ! Adele just remind everyone why she has 15 Grammys and is a icon.’ (sic)

Adele was last on SNL in 2008, in an episode hosted by Josh Brolin. At the time she had just released her first album, 19.

‘It’s me, Adele, and my God, I’m absolutely thrilled to finally be hosting this show,’ she said. ‘A show that not only do I genuinely love, but the show that broke my career here in America 12 very long years ago. 

‘See, I was a musical guest back in 2008 when Sarah Palin came on with Ms Tina Fey. So obviously a few million people tuned in to watch it and the rest is history.

‘Now, I don’t know anything about American politics. I’m British, you know? And I don’t want to say anything too political, so I’ll just say this: Sarah Palin, babes, thanks for everything, yeah?’ She also joked about her British habit of swearing, gesturing to a swear jar. 

‘I’m nervous. You know what I’m like. I always get very nervous on live TV but tonight especially so because I swear a lot. Like a lot a lot,’ she said.

‘Honestly I don’t notice I’m doing it anymore. But tonight, we’ve got a swear jar. Let’s check in on that. Let’s make sure that all goes to charity.’
