WATCH: Adele Performs ‘Hello’ with an Older Flip Phone and Classroom Instruments with Fallon

Get into it.

Random covers of “Hello” will grow old. Adele’s covers of “Hello” will not. The record-breaking artist brought her vocal talents, flip phone, et. al to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform “Hello” with Fallon and The Roots.

It’s delightful with a splash of irresistible. There’s a banana phone, plus Adele tries out some new moves that rival those of a tech-savvier “Hotline” whose own meme-ability has nearly exhausted itself.


Adele’s 25 has officially already sold more than 2,433,000 copies in just over three days of release, beating out *NSYNC’s previously-held record of 2,416,000 sales of No Strings Attached in its first week back in 2000. Watch her perform “Hello” with classroom instruments in the video at the top of the page.
