Listen, she may not have been the musical guest this week, but if you have Adele on your show, she's gonna have to be Adele about it.
Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants are known for dramatic reactions, but that usually means bursting into tears, not song. However, during this Saturday Night Live spoof, Adele did just that, playing her superstar self in a sketch satirizing the long-running reality show.
As part of her hosting duties on October 24, Adele pretended to vie for the attention of Bachelor Ben K (Beck Bennett), but kept interrupting her flirtations to belt out her own hits—first “Someone Like You,” then “When We Were Young,” and “Hello,” switching up the lyrics to sing, “Hello from inside this bu-u-ush!” Finally, she gives another woman (Lauren Holt) the brush-off with a few bars of “Rolling in the Deep” and then just goes into the audience to sing.
On Twitter, Bachelor host Chris Harrison gave the sketch his stamp of approval, writing, “This is why Adele sadly just doesn’t work on #TheBachelor Hilarious bit last night - SNL.” Other viewers seemed to concur, praising Adele's comedic chops, her flawless vocal technique, and the fact that, you know, it's just nice to hear some Adele these days. As @samcorb wrote, “Adele on The Bachelor just... derangedly singing her own songs is the exact correct use of Adele.” Akilah Hughes agreed, writing, “I’m living for Adele singing in this bachelor sketch. Honestly god I miss live musicccc ahhh.”
Other fans were basically like, “Adele is great and we should all worship her,” which quite frankly is a good and correct take.
Watch the whole thing below, and sing along if you dare:
The sketch gets mileage out of the idea that having a pop superstar on the Bachelor franchise would be distracting and disruptive, but hear us out: Make Adele the next Bachelorette. Not that she needs any help finding a guy, but wouldn't you watch that? A ballsy, brassy diva using innocuous hunks as fodder for future ballads? Just think about it, ABC. Please.
