Is Adele Really Just Hosting ‘SNL’? We Have Some Theories About What Else Is Up Her Sequined Sleeve

On Sunday, Adele announced that she’s returning to the Saturday Night Live stage this weekend — but this time, it’s to host for the very first time. So what does it all mean? Will she perform as well, or is this truly just a hosting gig?

On this week’s Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith break down all the many possibilities surrounding Adele’s SNL announcement. Do we think new music is on the way? And if so, when? Or will this mark the British singer/songwriter’s first foray into the increasingly messy world of American politics? Perhaps she’ll endorse a presidential candidate or debut an impersonation of a political figure. Or maybe she’s just hosting — but Adele never just comes out of hiding without a good reason, right?

Above, listen to all our theories, and tune in to Saturday Night Live — where H.E.R. is the musical guest — this weekend (Oct. 24) for all the answers.

Also on the show, Katie & Keith talk about chart moves for 24KGoldn and Iann Dior — who earn their very first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 with “Mood” this week — and the return of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours album to the Billboard 200 top 10 after 42 years away.
