The Reactions to Elon Musk Hosting 'SNL' Are Not Positive at All

It was just announced that Elon Musk is going to be hosting the next episode of Saturday Night Live and let’s just say, the internet is not that keen on the idea.

Nearly all of the reactions we’ve seen so far on Twitter are in agreement that this is a pretty crazy idea, but we’ll just have to wait and see if Elon can pull it off.

Elon Musk hosting SNL is the most reckless casting decision they’ve made since Donald Trump,” one person said.

Another said, “Elon Musk hosting SNL is huge for guys still making ‘that’s what she said’ jokes who think they’d be great at hosting SNL.”

Miley Cyrus is the musical guest on the episode and fans are already apologizing to her for having to be on the same episode as Elon.

Melissa Villasenor Impersonated Ellen During Her Failed 'SNL' Audition - Watch Here!

Melissa Villasenor’s impression of Ellen DeGeneres is amazing!

The 33-year-old Saturday Night Live cast member sat down for an interview with Ellen on Tuesday (April 13) and recalled her first time auditioning for the show.

“You auditioned over ten years ago and I heard that in your audition, I was one of your impressions,” Ellen said. “What happened in the audition?”

“Well, you know that audition, the first one was great and you were in there Ellen,” Melissa replied. “I don’t remember the bit I did, but I think it had to do with ‘ABC,’ the Jackson Five song.”

Melissa then sang a couple bars of the song in her Ellen impersonation and it sounded just like her!

“That’s all I remember and I’m sorry it’s so bad,” Melissa said as Ellen laughed.

Melissa‘s impressions earned her a callback with Lorne Michaels, but unfortunately she didn’t get past the second round of auditions.

“But then you didn’t get it,” Ellen said.

“I wasn’t ready, I was 21,” Melissa replied. “I wasn’t funny.”

“And now you appreciate it more probably,” Ellen added as Melissa nodded.

Kid Cudi Seemingly Pays Tribute to Kurt Cobain While Wearing Floral-Print Dress on 'SNL' - Watch

Kid Cudi is taking over Saturday Night Live!

The 37-year-old rapper appeared on the NBC sketch comedy series as the musical guest on Saturday (April 10) in New York City.

For his first performance, Kid performed his hit song “Tequila Shots,” while wearing a green cardigan and a T-shirt that had a photo of the late SNL cast member Chris Farley on it.

Later in the evening, Kid put on a floral-print dress for a performance of his song “Sad People.” He ended the performance with a smile and a curtsy.

Fans were quick to point out on Twitter Kid was seemingly paying homage to the late Kurt Cobain with his outfit choices. Kurt famously wore the green cardigan and a floral-print dress during some of his performances back in the ’90s.

Kid‘s appearance on SNL comes several days after the anniversary of Kurt‘s death. He died by suicide back on April 5, 1994 at 27-years-old.

Earlier in the night, Kid appeared in an SNL sketch alongside one of his very famous friends!

FYI: Kid Cudi is wearing an Off-White dress.

In the episode, which was hosted by Carey Mulligan, SNL cast members Pete Davidson and Chris Redd were joined by the episode’s musical guest Kid Cudi for a sketch, where they rap about “Weird Little Flutes.”

At one point, the three guys rap, “Timmy Chalamet loves a weird little flute” and Timothee popped up on screen in an orange-and-black sweater and started playing the flute.

If you didn’t know, Timothee, Pete, and Kid are actually really good friends! Back in January 2019, the three all celebrated Kid‘s birthday with a dinner at Nobu with Kanye West.

Carey Mulligan's 'Saturday Night Live' Monologue is Crashed by Husband Marcus Mumford - Watch!

Carey Mulligan is making her Saturday Night Live hosting debut!

The 35-year-old Promising Young Woman actress hosted the NBC sketch comedy series for the first time on Saturday (April 10) from New York City.

In her opening monologue, Carey talked about quarantining with husband Marcus Mumford and their two kids – Evelyn, 5, and Wilfred, 3 – in the English countryside.

Carey then shared how excited she is to be in NYC, while sharing that the 34-year-old Mumford & Sons musician is back home with the kids.

At that time, Marcus pops up from the audience, confusing Carey.

“What a surprise, lovely to see you — where are the kids?” Carey asks.

““I left them with the Sons! I couldn’t miss this! You’re going to smash it! SNL!” Marcus exclaimed. “Do you know if they booked a musical guest for tonight?”

“Yes. Quite sure,” Carey said, but Marcus had already pulled out his guitar.

“I think we’ve got it covered…thank you, darling,” Carey said, but Marcus had already started playing.

Marcus then said that he thought Carey was giving him a “signal” — “our secret couple signal for please play the guitar?”

“We are not that couple!” Carey said. “Do you remember the bit at the end of the monologue where we say we the show is going to be great — do you want to play the guitar for that bit?”

Marcus then ran up and joined Carey on stage, where he played the guitar while Carey said her bit before the show cut to commercial.

If you missed it, Carey recently revealed the strange thing she plans on bringing to the 2021 Oscars with her!
