Adele performs 'Hello' with Jimmy Fallon and school instruments — and it's magic

Back Adele up with just a xylophone, kazoo, and some other instruments found in a kindergarten classroom, and she'll still deliver a knockout performance of her hit song "Hello."

Jimmy Fallon and The Roots proved that fact on "The Tonight Show" Tuesday when they broke out the school instruments, which also included a banana shaker, hand clappers and a Casio keyboard, to help the British singer-songwriter with the instrumentals for her hit song.

Adele even brought her own prop, busting out a flip phone, which makes an appearance in the video for "Hello."

When she visited the show Monday, Adele delivered her first live performance of the song "Water Under the Bridge" from her new album "25,'' bringing the audience to their feet.

She also cracked them up when she faced off with Fallon for a round of his deceptive guessing game, Box of Lies.

Adele also showed off her sense of humor just hours after her appearance as the musical guest on the latest "Saturday Night Live," showing off her uproarious reaction on Instagram to an "SNL" sketch, in which a feuding family forgets their differences on Thanksgiving when "Hello" is playing.

For those who can't get enough of Adele, which is pretty much everyone judging by her record-setting album sales of "25," she will sing live on Wednesday as part of TODAY's Citi Concert Series. She is back to where it all began, as she made her U.S. television debut on TODAY in the summer of 2008.
