The Someone like you singer will be assuming hosting duties during the sketch comedy show's October 24 episode.

In the behind-the-scenes pic, Adele can also be seen seated at a table studying her script.

In clips published to social websites, Adele is viewed introducing herself along with musical guest H.E.R. and SNL cast member Kate McKinnon - most donning masks. The "25" singer looked smashing in a new promo as she showed off her 100 pound weight loss.

"Adele is hosting SNL next week and she's Not singing??"

"Hi, I'm Adele, and I'm hosting Saturday Night Live this week with musical guest H.E.R.", she says as she stands next to singer-songwriter H.E.R. and SNL regular Kate McKinnon. "My first ever hosting gig and for SNL of all things!" she gushed on October 18. I've always wanted to do it as a stand-alone moment so that I could roll up my sleeves and fully throw myself into it, but the time has never been right. "This is the most excited I've been for anything EVER", wrote a follower, while another one said has been "waiting for five years" this exciting moment. And also totally terrified!

Neither a host nor a musical guest was announced yet. The now iconic appearance - where she performed "Cold Shoulder" and "Chasing Pavements" - helped massively propel her career in North America.

"It will be almost 12 years since the day I debuted on the show, during the election ... that cut short my career in America, so I feel a full circle and I can't say no!"

It has been nearly 12 years since she was originally musical guest on the NBC sketch show, alongside host Josh Brolin.

Adele posted the same photo on Instagram.

The blue-eyed soul sensation last made headlines on August 30 for being accused of cultural appropriation after rocking Bantu knots and a Jamaican flag bikini top while celebrating Notting Hill Carnival at her $9.5M Beverly Hills mansion.
