Lizzo carries out the double task of conductor of “SNL” and musical guest
Lizzo joined an elite club of selected record artists to both host and perform on “Saturday Night Live” in an episode that began with outrageous Easter messages from politicians and celebrities.
“A Message From the Easter Bunny” (Bowen Yang) featured impersonations of Britney Spears, Jared Leto disguised as Jesus Christ, Elon Musk and Donald Trump.
Cecily Strong rep Marjorie Taylor Greene greeted onlookers with a chocolate shotgun loaded with live bullets.
“I aggressively said to all my Jewish and Muslim colleagues, Happy Easter!” He said before declaring that the holiday had become “a little too LGBTQRT”.
“And there is nothing gay about Easter. A day when a group of male priests worship a shirtless boy with great abs and talk about wanting to eat his body. It’s simple stuff, “Strong-as-Green joked.
Chris Redd reprized his impersonation of Mayor Eric Adams as an arrogant Casanova who was excited for spring and happy that the Brooklyn subway shooter wasn’t his problem anymore.
“Don’t fix the TV, I’m so handsome, you know?” she bragged.
“We’ve got him. We’ve got the shooter. Sure, it took 30 hours and the suspect turned in, but we got him. Case closed,” the mayor continued to brag.
Bottom Line: Shooter captured, sexy back, violent crime on the rise. Bitch, I’m from New York. I’m Eric Adams. I manage this city! “
Dr. Anthony Fauci, deflated by Kate McKinnon, was tired of yet another wave of COVID-19 as he warned people about holiday rallies.
“I’m not here to give you further guidance on COVID; I am not stupid enough to think that you will follow him, ”said the false Maw.
Singer and rapper Lizzo, 33, received great applause in her monologue reflecting on the span of her career from rich to rich.
“At every show I say the same thing to my audience and I say it to you too: I love you, you are beautiful and you can do anything. I am proof of that. I used to live in my car and now I will be hosting Saturday Night Live, ”she said to overwhelming applause.
Kenan Thompson hosted a TV quiz called “Guess That” in which Lizzo played an uncooperative contestant who stood up to Thompson until rival contestants Redd and Ego Nwodim also turned to him.
“So you’re forcing me to play even though I can’t win. This man is a classic gaslight narcissist, all of you, ”he said, cheering them on until the host walked off the set.
A skit set on Interscope Records circa 2008 gave viewers a glimpse into the creative process of the Black Eyed Peas as they wrote nonsense lyrics of “Boom Boom Pow”, “Let’s Get It Started” and “I Gotta Feeling” under the guidance. by A&R reps Lizzo and Aidy Bryant.
Fergie, played by Strong; will.i.am, forged by Thompson; apl.de.ap, by Redd; and Taboo, by Yang, rejected Lizzo’s clever puns, instead using a stream of consciousness technique to write the songs.
“We want the song to talk about tonight, so let’s start collecting answers to the question ‘what’s it going to be like tonight?'” Bryant asked the group, who responded with “woo hoo”, “mazel tov” and “let’s do it.”
In the next skit Lizzo took home a first date (Mikey Day) in the house she shared with her grandfather, Six Flags mascot Mr. Six (Chloe Fineman).
Eventually it was revealed that the house was full of seniors in suits who enjoyed dancing to Vengaboys’ “We Like to Party”.
In the next skit Lizzo was in the writer’s room confiding to the Please Don’t Destroy comedy troupe that she wasn’t worried about hosting the show, but had other concerns.
“It’s the whole musical guest thing. I mean two new songs? I don’t have them, “she confessed before begging Ben Marshall, John Higgins and Martin Herlihy to write her a” Black Woman Anthem “10 minutes before dress rehearsal.
“We’re almost ready for you and if those new songs don’t go well, I’ll kill you,” Andrew Dismukes chimed in to say.
Just when it looked like the writers had hit a wall, Lizzo pulled a hit song out of their sketch idea for a “horny zoo keeper”.
“Weekend Update” resumed President Joe Biden’s handshake with an invisible person following his speech in North Carolina last week.
“Her name is Kamala,” wrote fake news host Colin Jost, referring to Vice President Kamala Harris.
“Elon Musk has offered to buy Twitter for $ 43 million so he can relax his free speech rules,” said co-host Michael Che.
“This is how white kids want to use the n word,” he joked.
“Twitter isn’t even profitable anymore. It just seems like a bad business decision, ”Jost said as the riff continued.
“And I say it as someone who bought a Staten Island Ferry with Pete [Davidson, absent again from the show.]”
The segment joked about the non-fatal subway attack, talking about how Frank James delivered himself at an East Village McDonalds.
“Where, judging by this photo, he was auditioning for the role of Grimace,” Che said of the burly suspect, who was pictured wearing a dark blue T-shirt in two takes next to the round purple fast food mascot.
McKinnon stole the next sketch – about a planning meeting for an ancient Egyptian orgy that included most of the cast – making out with a live goat.
A prestigious orchestra without a flutist took the opportunity with Lizzo, but the conductor was taken aback by the lack of decorum of the woodwind player, which upset the stuffy environment by “twerking on the bassoonist”.
“We make music together and if that means I have to make this booty for Beethoven, then so be it,” said the Bryant violinist, as the ensemble members launched into a shocking version of “Ode to Joy”.
Lizzo and Dismukes played an elite couple who told the other dinner guests how they planned to travel the world about the value of their Beanie Baby collection.
“Needless to say, we won’t worry about money for a while,” Lizzo mocked, before panicking when she realized the investment wasn’t as profitable as the couple thought.
Lizzo introduced herself by saying “Ladies and gentleman … me” before embarking on “Good As Hell”, with a flute solo inspired by “Rapper’s Delight”.
The artist’s mother presented her second issue, “Special”.
