When Adele wasn’t saving Thanksgiving dinner, she was performing on Saturday Night Live for the first time since 2008. The singer, whose album 25 finally dropped on Friday, sang her hit song “Hello” for the show’s audience, as well as another track from the record, “When We Were Young.”

The “Hello” performance is not yet online in an official capacity (interested parties can find the stirring rendition here), but did end with Adele making this face.


Adele’s performance of “When We Were Young” similarly brought the house down. The 27-year-old singer grew more and more animated while singing the track, using hand gestures to underscore the song’s lyrics.

Watch the “When We Were Young” performance below.
