Celebrity row for Game 5 of the NBA Finals included music superstar Adele sitting courtside. Her location gave her the best look at the biggest play of the game Saturday night.
And because of her reaction to that play, she’s now part of a very fun internet meme.
She was watching from the baseline as Giannis Antetokounmpo dunked an alley-oop pass from Jrue Holiday to give the Bucks a three-point lead over the host Suns with 13.5 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter. Phoenix’s Chris Paul fouled Giannis while he was in the air to make it an and-one. Milwaukee went on to win 123-119 and take a 3-2 series lead.
The images of her facial (and vocal) expression during the dunk set the internet (including some SN sleuths) off on a journey through her discography for just the right QT.
Here’s what we mean:
The internet was unsure whether she was rooting for Milwaukee (Look at that reaction to Giannis!) or Phoenix (She was holding a Suns towel!). It’s better to think she was pulling for the Suns, because then we could go with “WE COULD HAVE HAD IT ALLLLL (wrapped up by now)” now that Phoenix has blown a 2-0 series lead and is on the verge of elimination.
