Somewhere off in a parallel universe, Jimmy Fallon must be the coolest fourth-grade teacher ever.
The Tonight Show host unveiled the lastest addition to his Classroom Instruments series last night—previous installments have included Mariah Carey, Idina Menzel, and Carley Rae Jepsen—this time featuring Adele.
The 10-time Grammy winner and mom-of-one busted out her signature soulful voice to sing her smash hit "Hello," backed up only by Fallon, The Roots, and various classroom instruments including bongos, a kazoo, a plastic rainbow-colored xylophone and—our favorite—a bright yellow banana-shaped maraca.
The performance defintely earns Fallon and Co. a score of A-plus, but Adele gets extra credit points for boldly jumping into the kids' prop action mix by whipping out a plastic lime green cell phone and putting it to her ear just in time for the line "Hello from the outsiiiiiiide."
Watch it all go down and then let us know whether you think Adele is a straight-A student or the proverbial class clown:
This, of course, wasn't the first "Hello" parody to hit primetime. Saturday Night Live aired its version a few days ago, in which a feuding family at Thanksgiving finds the only thing that can bring them back together: Adele.
After the parody aired, the beautful Brit posted her incredible reaction shot to Instagram, proving once again that "Hello" is the gift that just keeps on giving.
