Adele wasn’t expected to sing during her first time hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend. The show had R-and-B artist H.E.R. (pr: Her) as musical guest, but you figured they might work a vocal in somewhere — and they did.
Despite explaining at the top of her opening monologue that she wouldn’t be singing because her new album’s not finished and she was too scared to both host and sing, Adele did what amounted to a hits medley during a sketch that had her playing herself as a contestant on The Bachelor. With interruptions in between, she sang snippets of “Someone Like You,” “When We Were Young,” “Hello” and “Rolling in the Deep,” before finishing with a longer excerpt from “Someone Like You.”
The way to Lewis Capaldi’s heart is through his stomach — as he proved by taking part in a quirky experiment that tried to match up singles through their favorite foods.
The trial was set up after a recent survey of British singles showed that one in four said they’d only get serious about someone who liked the same grub they do. In the test, Lewis tasted three dishes created by mystery gals and struggled to make his decision, but landed on a plate of chicken nachos made by a woman named Megan.
Capaldi was asked if the experience would end up on his upcoming album, and he seemed to like the idea. He says, “Yes. I’ve always wanted to do culinary-themed music, and I’ve always said there is a market for it. ‘Megan’s Nachos’ coming 2021.” (Edinburgh News
Ed Sheeran fanatics will have a chance to buy his actual “Lego House,” among other relics, at a charity auction his parents are staging in his hometown.
Most of the items up for bids were part of the Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk exhibition, which rolled out at a nearby museum last year. The goodies include handwritten lyrics to “Perfect,” a ticket to Ed’s first ever gig in Framlingham and, yes, the Lego set he played with as a child.
Proceeds from the auction which ends November 8th, will go towards supporting young people in Ed’s home county of Suffolk, including renovation of a playground in Ipswich. (BBC
