Adele is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. The singer will take on hosting duties for the first time on 24 October, and though fans think it means she's releasing new music, she'll be joined by musical guest H.E.R.

In a new promo for Saturday's show, Adele, H.E.R. and comedian and SNL alum Kate McKinnon are all wearing black masks.

"Hi, I'm Adele, and I'll be hosting Saturday Night Live this week with musical guest, H.E.R.," she says.

"With her, or her?" Kate asks, pointing to H.E.R. and Adele, causing some confusion.

"No, with H.E.R.," Adele responds.

In a second take, Kate attempts a British accent, but it's Adele's American one that has as in stitches.

Adele is gorgeous in a fitted, velvet dress with a deep V, with her blonde locks swept to the side.
