"I've always wanted to do it as a stand-alone moment so that I could roll up my sleeves and fully throw myself into it, but the time has never been right," Adele wrote.
"But if there was ever a time for any of us to jump headfirst into the deep end with our eyes closed and hope for the best, it's 2020, right?" she added.
The British singer also recalled being on the show 12 years ago, during an election period. Adele declared that the said appearance launched her career in America, so she can't turn down the offer to go back as guest host.
