The big reason to watch Saturday Night Live on Saturday the 18th was to see the real Sarah Palin interact with the cast who have been mocking her for weeks, but what I also enjoyed on the show was singer Adele, who was the musical guest.
Most times I tune out the musical guest but I remembered hearing her on the Letterman show earlier in the summer so I gave her another listen.
I was blown away. Again the proof of a good singer is if they can sing good live and Adele can sing! Wow!
Her website and other sources call it British soul and it had the feeling of the 1960’s singers like Dusty Springfield and Lulu – and the strings in her backing group really sold me.
On Saturday she sang “Chasing Pavements” and “Cold Shoulder” – personally I liked them both but I loved the music of “Cold Shoulder”.
Check out her videos – you won’t be disappointed.
