Adele will return to Saturday Night Live this weekend, marking her first U.S. television appearance in support of 25. Needles to say, the show --  hosted by Matthew McConaughey -- is highly anticipated.

Adele Had Us At Hello in New 'Saturday Night Live' Promos

Below, five moments to expect:

1. While any song from 25 is possible, it seems Adele will sing current smash "Hello" and new song "When We Were Young," the latter of which she released as a live video earlier this week.

2. Anyone who watches Adele on the press tour knows she's got a fun and dirty personality that only makes her more delightful. Hopefully she'll join McConaughey and Co. in a sketch Saturday evening that is able to show off her goofier side.  

3. In the promos, a particularly stunning Adele goofs around with a phone. Will SNL join the rest of the Internet parodying the out-of-date technology from the video?

4. Adele has a highly recognizable way of speaking/singing, so in this week of horrible news around the world, it can't be too much to ask to see all the various cast members' takes on both Adele and the easily imitable host McConaughey.

5. We're hoping for some kind of repeat of this sketch, this time with an appearance by real live Adele.

Saturday Night Live airs Saturday at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
