Adele and Jimmy Fallon Perform ‘Hello’ With Classroom Instruments.

But Adele took it back to basics when she stopped by The Tonight Show on Monday, joining host Jimmy Fallon and The Roots in a rendition of her new single Hello played entirely on kindergarten instruments.

After hosting Adele for an interview, performance, and “Box of Lies” session on Monday night, Jimmy Fallon saved the best for last on Tuesday when he joined the record-breaking singer for one of his unplugged, classroom instrument versions of her hit “Hello” with a little help from The Roots. Adele’s earth-shaking rendition of “Hello” on Saturday Night Live this past weekend still hasn’t made its way online, but a short GIF from the end of her appearance has made the rounds. And the singer didn’t disappoint, belting out her new hit single with panache as the guys chimed in with a banana rattle, tambourine, kazoos and a colorful xylophone. Adele, very gravely, attempted to convince Fallon that she was in possession of a toy tyrannosaurus rex dressed up as a fairy, but the host called her bluff.

The 27-year-old Adele started out softly, but quickly got into her new track, even whipping out a bright green toy flip phone in a nod to her dramatic Hello video. Joe doll dressed as Santa Claus staring down a candy cane throwing star was a far easier task than describing what he did have: A game of Simon stamped with disconcertingly fleshy prosthetic noses. All the hard work is paying off, as it was revealed that the Brit has broken ‘N Sync‘s 15-year album record of the most single-week US album sales of all time in just four days. And Adele could be gearing up for arguably the biggest gig of her life as she’s said to be in the final stages of talks regarding a headline spot at Glastonbury Festival 2016 next June, despite having previously ruled it out over her fear of crowds. She then took the stage for a performance of “Water Under the Bridge,” a rousing, soulful cut from her own (once excruciatingly anticipated) new album, 25, which arrived last week.

For their new video for “Down Here,” cool country-rockers Turnpike Troubadours look to that old adage about getting back on the horse after being bucked off. The song’s encouraging message suggests that while the high life is all well and good, your real friends will be there when you’ve lost your way or find yourself getting knocked down to earth. The rodeo-themed clip accompanies the first single from the Red Dirt band’s self-titled fourth album, which frontman Evan Felker insists carries the “country” label proudly. “Any time some rock & roller gets washed up in whatever band they’re in, they switch to country music and try to play our game,” he tells Rolling Stone Country. “But it’s not country music. I’m happy to be a country band.” On December 4th, the band will play in Miami, Oklahoma, with upcoming shows (including some solo acoustic dates for Felker) in Springfield, Illinois, Tulsa and Okemah, Oklahoma. The Turnpike Troubadours were one of Rolling Stone Country’s Artists You Need to Know for November. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings.

Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again.
