Adele unveiled a new album on Friday, then dropped a powerhouse performance on Saturday Night Live, and just for kicks can apparently stop your resident crazy relatives in their Thanksgiving-ruining tracks, reports the Washington Post. The British singer was the musical guest on Saturday's show, but she made a tangential appearance in a sketch called "A Thanksgiving Miracle"—in which a little girl deploys Adele's "Hello" to abruptly silence her family members from opining on the likes of ISIS, Syria, Ben Carson, etc. It was a bright spot in a Matthew McConaughey-hosted show that, as Paste puts it, was "good for McConaughey, while not entirely good for itself. This is a woefully average episode. Nowhere near good, and miles away from a homerun." (More Adele stories.)
