Adele has announced her long-awaited comeback as she prepares to host Saturday Night Live.
The Someone Like You singer, 32, took to her Instagram account on Sunday night to share the exciting news, revealing H.E.R. will be the musical guest that night.
It’s Adele’s first major appearance in four years after her last tour in 2016.
Adele hasn’t put out any new music since the release of her 25 album in 2015, and her fans are desperate for a new record, which could possibly be announced on the show next week.
On Sunday she posted a picture of three Post-it Notes saying “Oct 2” “Adele and “H.E.R.”.
It is the first time she has hosted SNL but 12 years ago she appeared on the late night comedy show as a performer.
“Bloooooody hellllll I’m so excited about this!!” Adele captioned the post. “And also absolutely terrified! My first ever hosting gig and for SNL of all things!!!!
“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?”
Adele said the timing feels right after what was going on in the world the last time she hosted SNL.
She added: “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 a**e off in between it all.
“See you next week.”
Adele’s career has been relatively quiet since her last tour in 2016.
That year she played Glastonbury Festival and toured the world, but she had to cancel her last two gigs due to vocal injuries.
Over the last year she has made headlines thanks to her weight loss.
She’s lost a rumoured seven stone after making huge lifestyle changes.
It’s claimed she wanted to lose weight to get healthy for her son Angelo, eight.
Her transformation followed her split from her husband Simon Konecki.
