ADELE joked about her recent divorce to husband Simon Konecki acting as a Bachelor contestant during her first time hosting Saturday Night Live.
Showing off her stunning weight loss in a form-fitting gown, the 32-year-old music icon looked gorgeous as she opened up about her “famous” heartbreak on the Studio 8H stage in NYC.
The pop star rocked her signature color, black, in a skintight black velvet dress with her blonde hair in old Hollywood style curls.
Though she was playing a woman vying for the heart of “Bachelor,” Ben K. – played by SNL cast member Beck Bennett – Adele also kept her real identity in the skit.
“Hi, I’m Adele Adkins. You may know me as singer Adele. I’m here because I had a lot of heartbreak in my life,” the crooner confessed.
She continued: “First at 19, then sort of famously at 21 and then even more famously at 25.
“But I have a really good feeling about Ben K.,” she said mocking the reality show intros.
The age numbers were a reference to her record-breaking albums of the same names that she released in 2008, 2011 and 2015, respectively, about the heartbreak she endured during those ages.
“It’s only night one, but I can already tell he’s going to be the next love of my life,” she said confidently to the camera during a fake confessional.
The scene then cuts to Ben K. With a room full of women as he gives his highly-coveted first impression rose to Hannah C. – portrayed by Heidi Garner.
Ben K.’s move infuriates Adele, who breaks out into one of her biggest hits, 2011’s Someone Like You.
She dramatically stares at the lens as she wows with her incredible vocal talent, singing:
“I heard that you’re settled down/ That you found a girl and you’re married now. I heard that your dreams came true,” as she was cut off by Ben K. – who reminded her that the first rose did not actually mean he was marrying Hannah C.
As she joined the fake reality show leading man for their first sit-down, the London native appeared to be at a loss for words and instead chose to communicate through music.
To tell him about herself, Adele sang lyrics from her nostalgic ballad When We Were Young.
“You still look like a movie/ You still sound like a song/ My God, this reminds me/ Of when we were young,” she powerfully expressed to a confused Ben K.
“We just met today,” the Bachelor character said to his passionate admirer.
As she continued to turn the Bachelor mansion into her own personal musical, the other ladies appeared to get annoyed by the singer’s constant interruption.
“I absolutely love being on The Bachelor but it has been sort of hard to get alone time with Ben with so many other girls in the house, including Adele.
“Especially Adele. The problem is Adele,” Chloe Fineman said as Hannah B. – a nod to the popular contestant name from the ABC reality show.
Despite the other girls’ anger, Adele continued to belt out tunes and next sang the 2016 monster of a hit, Hello.
“Night one has been a smash but I get the feeling I might be coming on a bit strong.
“I think Ben K. likes that laid-back American vibe so the rest of the night I’ve decided to play it chill and cool,” Adele assured in a confessional.
However, she did not play it cool and instead quickly began to scream out lyrics to her songs Rolling In The Deep and Someone Like you.
As she flawlessly sang the 2011 breakup track, she waltzed into the audience and concluded the sketch with one last joke.
“Thank you everyone, catch me next week on Love Island,” she said of the popular UK reality dating show.
The Grammy winner looked stunning during the sketch as she showed off her slim figure following her recent weight loss in a tight black dress.
Adele has overhauled her look since splitting from husband and partner of eight years, Simon, in April 2019.
The pair first began dating in 2011 and announced they were having a child – Angelo who is now seven – one year later.
It was reported they wed in a secret wedding sometime in 2016 and Adele officially filed for divorce in September 2019.
