Saturday Night Live is usually hosted by beloved actors and comedians, but our favorite singers manage to sneak in every once in a while. Adele is the latest recording artist to score a hosting gig on this long-lived sketch show, scheduled to take place this week.

Adele appeared on Saturday Night Live on two separate occasions, in 2008 and 2015. She was a musical guest both times, but her upcoming appearance will be extra-special since she’s taking on hosting duties for the first time.

“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 headfirst into the deep end with our eyes closed and hope for the best it’s 2020 right?” the British singer shared on Instagram.

Surprisingly enough, Adele won’t be the musical guest on this upcoming episode of SNL. H.E.R. will be in charge of performing, and Adele said she’s beside herself to see her performing live. It’s unclear if Adele will use her performance to tease new music or any other projects, but we’ll have to wait until Saturday to see for ourselves.
