“Saturday Night Live” began its cold opening that touched on everything, from Alon Musk trying to buy Twitter and Britney Spears announcing her pregnancy to Coachella and bad reviews of the movie “Morvius.”
Bowen Young’s Easter bunny presented itself against a pastel background and filled with a garden to mimic the Christian holiday.
“It really is me, the Easter Bunny,” Young said. “Either that, or you’re in Coachella and the ‘Shrum’s begin.”
Young introduced Kate Pauchi to Kate McKinnon made a comeback, and now two years into an ongoing epidemic, Dr. Pauchi is tired of conveying the same message.
“Believe me, I’m not here to give you more guidance on the corona virus, I’m not stupid enough to think you’re really going to follow it,” says Dr. Pauchi (McKinnon). again.”
Young then introduced Elon Musk, played by Mikey Day, who offered to buy Twitter this week for $ 43 billion.
“All right, I’m Elon Musk,” he began today. “And I’m here to officially buy Easter. I’m offering 43 billion peeks. It was a joke. Do you understand that? Is that why I said ‘it was a joke’ later, so you know it was a joke.”
Day’s version of the tech billionaire, who hosted ‘SNL’ last season, asked if people feared he would “make Twitter worse”.
He added, “What are you afraid I’ll buy next time? The Oscars?”
What followed were performances by the character of Chris Red’s mayor, Eric Adams, who bragged about how the man responsible for the Brooklyn subway shooting was within 30 hours and turned himself in; Britney Spears (Chloe Payne) who detailed her pregnancy; And Jared Leto of Kyle Mooney who introduced himself as Jesus.
While Xiang was about to cut to the opening monologue, James Austin’s Donald Trump appeared.
“I was told we were making Easter wishes and I did not get my turn,” Joznon said. “It’s very, very unfair. Another example of how whites behave horribly in this country.”
Johnson then proceeded with a preposterous chic that not even the Easter Bunny understood. Eventually, he gave up and said, “What the hell are you talking about?”
“I’m shocked that I’m wearing clothes too,” Lizzo said, as she took the stage the first time she hosted “SNL.” The singer has played a dual role as a guest star and musical talent. Although this was her first time as a guest, this is her second time as a musical guest.
She mentioned how important it is for fans to know that she has different parts of her personality that led her to give a Ted talk on a culturally relevant topic. “The lyso you see on stage is different from the real self, I also have a serious side,” she said. “Like last year I had the honor of giving a Ted talk. It was about networking.”
She continues, “It was about the history of networking and how it comes from West African dances like Epocha. Yes. Deeper than you thought. Right?”
Also, during her monologue, Lizo nodded to TikTok she created about her celebrity lover in August 2021, where she joked about being pregnant with Evans’ baby.
The singer turned to a “gossip” fan who is “going out with every little white kid in Hollywood,” including every member of One Direction and of course, Captain America. “I even heard I was pregnant with Chris Evans ‘baby. I have no idea where it started. It could be the TikTok I did where I said,’ I’m pregnant with Chris Evans ‘baby,'” she said, bursting out laughing. “It’s called demonstrating.”
The hosts of the “Weekend Update” news section Colin Jost and Michael Che have covered a number of news articles, the New York subway fire in Brooklyn, President Joe Biden’s approval rating and Musk’s offer to take over Twitter.
“Alon Musk has offered to buy Twitter for more than $ 40 billion so he can break its freedom of expression rules,” Che said, before adding, “That’s how white guys want to use ‘n-word’.”
“Honestly, I do not understand why Elon even wants to own Twitter,” Jost said. “It used to be something that seemed important and even fun and now you look at it and it’s confusing and depressing. It’s the Julian of apps.”
“Come on, Elon has built electric cars, he’s going to Mars, why is he even interfering with Twitter?” Jost continued. “It would be like the Prince of England giving up everything just to marry a player from ‘Suits.’ With Pete [Davidson]. “
At the end of the “Weekend Update,” the show mourned the death of Gilbert Gottfried, who died earlier this week after a long illness. He was a crew member on “SNL” in 1980.
Lizo and lots of other crew members star in another sketch related to tic-tac-toe. This is from the point of view of someone who unknowingly scrolls through the social media app, distracting himself from learning.
In this nostalgic and precise moment of pop culture, two 2008 music producers played by Lizo and Edie Bryant try to help the Black Eyed Peas (Kenan Thompson, Cecily Strong, Chris Redd, Bowen Yang) invent lyrics to their hit songs.
“SNL” will return on May 7, with host Benedict Cumberbatch and musical guest Arcade Fire.
