WATCH: Adele Performs ‘Hello’ and ‘When We Were Young’ on ‘SNL’
In fact, arguably the best sketch of the night was based on the ability of her haunting single, “Hello,” to stop a family argument dead in its tracks.
The British singer performed her runaway hit single “Hello” for the live studio audience and also treated them to “When We Were Young.”
This was her first television promotion of her new album, 25, which is anticipated to break album sales records.
It appears the combination of Matthew McConaughey as host and Adele as the musical guest was just what the show needed as SNL saw a considerable spike in ratings, its second highest overnight ratings in nearly ten months.
