You've heard Adele's new single "Hello" a million times by name, be it on Saturday Night Live, on record, via YouTube or via your dreams. But, you haven't quite yet heard the stunning 25 track like this. On Monday night (Nov. 23), Adele stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and during her time at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, she remade "Hello" the only way Tonight Show guests know how... with little kid instruments.

Always a team player, Adele surrounded herself with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots to give the heartbreaking song a lighthearted makeover. She was accompanied, of course, by a mouth piano (as always), a woodblock, a triangle, maracas, and a tiny xylophone.

Despite the inherent goofiness of the scenario, the people in the room couldn't help but be blown away by Adele's voice. As soon as she opened her mouth, Fallon can be seen cracking a huge, approving smile.

And though she didn't play a tiny classroom instrument herself, Adele did have her own toy: a neon green child's flip phone, parodying her own outdated technology from the "Hello" music video.

Adele's latest viral video on The Tonight Show is just one stop on her massive NBC promo tour. She's also recently appeared on Saturday Night Live and The Today Show and she will have her own hour-long special Adele Live in New York City next month.

As for her new album 25 is out now. After only a few days on sale, the massive and highly anticipated record has already exceeded sales expectations, surpassing NSYNC's No Strings Attached as the fastest-selling album in U.S. tracking history.
