Adele performed her smash-hit song “Hello” on Tuesday’s “Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots backing her up using a variety of classroom instruments.
Members of the band played things like the tambourine, maracas, xylophone, and the bongos. Fallon got in on the fun by playing a drum and a block of wood.
The singer’s new album “25” barely needed four days to break NSYNC’s all-time record for first-week album sales, a total that “No Strings Attached” claimed for more than 15 years. But Adele has toppled many other top artists and records in the process.
“Hello” was also first to 100 million views on Vevo. That massive total took Adele just five days, beating out the six days it took Miley Cyrus and “Wrecking Ball.”
The sepia-toned music video took the same amount of time to reach that nine-digit total on YouTube — but the Google platform’s speed record still belongs to”Gentleman,” by PSY. “Hello” is now No. 2 there.
On YouTube, “Hello” was viewed 50 million times in its first 48 hours, making it the biggest debut of any video on YouTube in 2015.
