Watch Adele, the Roots, and Jimmy Fallon Tear Through ‘Hello’ on Classroom Instruments

Update: Adele — a singer who clearly knows the value of staying omnipresent — just performed a 25 deep cut, “Million Years Ago,” on The Today Show. Watch that below.

While visiting Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show earlier this week — with a stirring performance of “Water Under the Bridge” and a ridiculously charming game of “Box of Lies” — the new reigning queen of single-week album sales, Adele, also made time for a backstage performance of “Hello.” It wasn’t just any old run-through of the chart-topper, though, as the 25 singer was joined by the Roots and Fallon himself on a series of classroom instruments as she wailed away at the impassioned single.
