  • Hey, have y'all heard Adele's latest song, "Hello"?

  • Have you heard that?

  • [cheers and applause]

  • Adele and I are good friends, and a lot of people don't realize her new song is based on a conversation that we had.

  • Um... [audience laughter]

  • Take a look.

  • [piano music]

  • [phone ringing]

  • Hello?

  • [singing] Hello?

  • It's me.

  • Oh, hey, Adele. What's going on with you?

  • [singing] I was wondering if after all these years you'd like to meet.

  • I'm... the connection's bad.

  • Did you say you're eating beets?

  • [audience laughter]

  • [singing] To go over everything.

  • [crunching noise]

  • I'm sorry.

  • I was eating chips. What did you say?

  • [singing] Hello?

  • [crunching] Still can't--hold on.

  • [singing] Can you hear me?

  • Well, yes. Can you hear me?

  • [singing] Hello? - Hello?

  • I'm still here.

  • Let's wrap... I'm in a hurry.

  • You're talking so slowly.

  • [singing] I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be.

  • Okay, so you're in California, and what?

  • [singing] When we were younger and free.

  • [audience laughter]

  • It might be easier to hear you if you stopped playing that piano.

  • [singing] I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet.

  • Seriously, speed it up.

  • I'm kind of in a hurry. Just get to the point.

  • [singing] And a million miles ...

  • [phone rings] Hold on.

  • Hold on, I have another call.

  • - Hello? - [singing] You used to call me on my cell phone.

  • Oh, Drake, hi, hi.

  • I have been so busy. I've been meaning to call.

  • I have. Can you hold on?

  • I gotta get rid of this other call.

  • It's Adele. So slowly.

  • I'll tell you about it in a minute.

  • Hello... Adele? Adele.

  • Drake?

  • [phone rings]

  • - Hello? - [singing] Hello?

  • [audience laughter] Hi, Lionel.

  • Is it me you're looking for?

  • No. I was not looking for you.

  • [singing continues]

  • Seriously, I... I can't talk.

  • [cheers and applause]

  • Call waiting gets me. I don't know how to do it.
