Adele Tells “SNL” Audience “My Album’s Not Finished” But Triumphs as Host and Even Sings Medley of Hits


Pop star Adele sang a medley of her hits as part of a sketch tonight on “Saturday Night Live.” She was totally charming as host even though she said in the closing bit that her appearance was “totally random.” She was charming and funny and looked great.

More importantly, she did admit that “my album’s not finihsed.” Next month will be five years since her last album release. Still, it was great to see her. My guess is the ratings will be very high when the numbers come in later today.

Maya Rudolph didn’t play Kamala Harris, but she was great in several sketches. She is a treasure. Ditto Kate McKinnon. Really missing Cecily Strong and Aidy Bryant.

Jim Carrey is still not making it as Biden. Alec Baldwin as Trump was, as usual, hilarious although he seemed a bit off.

HER Music sang two songs. The second one, “Hold On,” was excellent. The video is below Adele’s followed by a link.
