Saturday Night Live: Adele 'excited' and 'terrified' to host

Well, as of this weekend, they will all have recently guest presented the coveted US comedy sketch series Saturday Night Live.

Adele announced the news on Instagram on Sunday, saying she is "so excited" and "absolutely terrified".

The Grammy-winning UK pop star will have one of her favourite US singer-songwriters, H.E.R, as a musical guest.

Her big presenting debut on the long-running NBC series is described as "a standalone moment", and as such is not necessarily tied to her releasing any new music.

Adele takes Grenfell families on a trip to the flicks

Same as the rest of us - go an watch Despicable Me 3 of course.

Turns out that's what Adele did last week and she treated some of the families who live near Grenfell Tower in the process. Only difference was it was a private screening...but then we'd all do that too if we could.

The singer, who recently cancelled two big dates at Wembley Stadium at the end of her world tour due to vocal issues, was seen down on the ground in North Kensington in June helping with the relief effort in the wake of the fire which killed scores of people.

Adele fans #SingForAdele

The #SingForAdele campaign began after the singer broke the news she would be unable to perform the final two concerts of her world tour.

"On medical advice, I simply am unable to perform over the weekend," the singer posted on social media Friday. "To say I'm heartbroken would be a complete understatement."

But while damaged vocal cords kept the Grammy winner from "Rolling in the Deep" at her scheduled Wembley Stadium gigs in the U.K., fans gathered there anyway as part of the #SingForAdele campaign, which went viral.

They are followed by West End mogul Lord Lloyd Webber, U2, Sir Elton John, Sir Mick Jagger and his Rolling Stones bandmate Keith Richards.

Is racism why Adele beat Beyoncé at the Grammys?

When the British pop star tearfully accepted the ceremony's top award Sunday night, she shined a spotlight on the woman she said she has loved since she was 11 years old.

"The artist of my life is Beyoncé, and this album to me, the 'Lemonade' album, was just so monumental," Adele said.

Certainly for her diehard fan base known as the Beyhive -- and for many music critics -- Beyoncé's "Lemonade" was a creative masterpiece.

But with its racial themes and imagery, some are questioning if the project was "just too black" for Grammy voters.
