Adele continued her NBC promo tour in support of her new album 25 with an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. To make the most of his time with Adele, who is on pace to set the record for the most albums sold in one week in the history of tracking sales, Fallon chatted with the "Hello" singer about everything from Rihanna to Saturday Night Live, played a game of lies and we were all treated to a performance of "Water Under the Bridge."

To kick off Adele night on The Tonight Show, Fallon and Adele sat down for a little chat, wherein the talk show host kept slipping in to a British accent. In typical Adele fashion, she was beyond charming and discussed artists who had been M.I.A. for a while that she wanted to come back with new music. Attention, Rihanna and Frank Ocean, Adele is asking for more new music, please. She also discussed working with Rick Rubin and her scrapped version of 25.

Fallon and Adele also played a little game of "Box of Lies," wherein they grabbed a variety of silly objects from a shelf and had to bluff whether or not they were real. If you've ever wanted to see Adele's signature cackle and watch her talk about a dinosaur with fairy wings, this is your chance.

Adele wasn't just on hand to play games with Fallon and give the audience a taste of her signature laugh, she also serenaded the crowd. After performing "Hello" and "When We Were Young" on Saturday Night Live, Adele reached further into 25's tracklist to debut "Water Under the Bridge" on live TV.

As should have been expected, the music was stunning. Earlier, Adele described her desire to sing new songs on every TV show because she makes "albums, not singles," and, in all her generosity, she doesn't want to make people watch "Hello" 100 times.
