Adele shows off American accent in first promo for her hosting debut on NBC's Saturday Night Live


Adele showed off her astonishing seven stone weight loss in the first promo for her hosting debut on this week’s Saturday Night Live.

The Hello singer, 32, also flaunted her impressive American accent in the teaser, which was released on Thursday, as she excused show alum Kate McKinnon’s attempt at an English accent by saying: ‘Oh my god! No worries, girlfriend!” 

Elsewhere in the clip, while introducing her musical guest H.E.R, Adele seemed to hint that she will be performing herself, as she said: ‘Or maybe [the musical guest] is me?’ – in what would be her first live performance in three years.

Adele, a 15-time Grammy winner, seemed to have impressed funnywoman Kate, 36, with her American drawl, as Kate responded: ‘Okay, now that is good!’

In another of the teasing promos – Adele, Kate, and first-time guest H.E.R. debated over which ‘her’ Adele was actually referring to during the introduction, leading to her illusive hint over her being a musical guest as well.

There has been much speculation over whether Adele will perform on the NBC sketch show while H.E.R, born Gabriella Wilson, will sing her new single Damage.

Adele’s last live show was at the end of her 2017 tour, shortly before she pulled out of her last two shows at Wembley Stadium after damaging her vocal cords.

At the time, she said in an emotional post hat she was forced to cancel the gigs to a reported 100,000 audience at the London venue. Adele said she was ‘desperate’ to play the concerts – which she dubbed a ‘milestone’ in her career. 

H.E.R. – who scored two Grammy Awards for her R&B stylings – later gushed via Instagram: ‘Can’t believe I’m gonna be on Saturday Night Live!’      

‘I am besides myself that H.E.R will be the musical guest!’ Adele previously wrote on Instagram last Sunday.

‘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.’
