Adele appeared on SNL as musical guest in 2008 ahead of the presidential election to perform 'Chasing Pavements' and 'Cold Shoulder' and in 2015 to sing her hits 'Hello' and 'When You Were Young'.
Adele announced Sunday that she will host next week’s episode, with H.E.R. making her SNL debut as musical guest rather than the British singer performing new music.
"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 artist wrote on her Instagram page.
"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?
"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!
"I am besides myself that H.E.R will be the musical guest!! 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."
Adele last performed live publicly in June 2017 following a host of vocal cord issues and throat surgery. However, in recent months, the singer has teased her return on social media.
