This will be the first time Adele appears on the show since making her “Saturday Night Live” debut in 2008 with a performance of “Chasing Pavements”, reports ew.com.
Before that, the British singer hadn’t broken through in the US just yet – but her debut album, that year’s “19”, made it to the top spot on iTunes the day after “Saturday Night Live”.
Since then, Adele has won an Oscar for “Skyfall”, the theme song she wrote and performed for the 2012 James Bond film of the same name, and 10 Grammys.
After staying out of the spotlight for a bit, Adele made her official return last week when she released new single “Hello”.
