Elon Musk will probably be joined by musical visitor Miley Cyrus on May 8, 2021
Saturday Night Live has been getting main props for his or her record of visitor hosts this 12 months like Dan Levy, John Krasinski, Regina King, and Regé-Jean Page, however the current announcement that Tesla CEO and throughout query mark Elon Musk will probably be internet hosting the present has many scratching their heads.
Musk, the CEO of electrical carmaker Tesla and chief engineer of SpaceX, an aerospace producer (oh and one of many richest individuals on the planet) has been introduced because the visitor host for SNL’s May 8, 2021 present with the cheeky tagline, “Musk See TV.” Typically, the present is hosted by comedians, actors, and athletes, so that is an odd selection for the present. Miley Cyrus will probably be becoming a member of Musk as musical visitor.

When Musk isn’t operating corporations or downplaying a world pandemic or giving his child weird names, he’s a sometimes-TV actor. He made a cameo in Marvel’s Iron Man 2 and made visitor appearances on the CBS exhibits Young Sheldon and The Big Bang Theory. He additionally lent his voice to an episode of The Simpsons and in a number of episodes of South Park up to now.
Still, the selection to e book Elon Musk on SNL has left many with a foul style of their mouthes:
Elon Musk internet hosting SNL is large for guys nonetheless making “that’s what she said” jokes who suppose they’d be nice at internet hosting SNL.

It’s not the primary time the present’s included individuals exterior the leisure realm. In the previous, they’ve included New York mayors Ed Koch and Rudolph Giuliani and presidential hopefuls like Steve Forbes and John McCain. In 2015, additionally they allowed Trump to return on a number of instances, a transfer they now possible deeply remorse. It’s additionally not simply that Musk isn’t “in” leisure, there’s simply one thing about him that makes you say, ehhhhhhh.
In addition to the SNL announcement, Musk has lately made headlines for his plan to permit bitcoin as a cost technique for Tesla and since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stated it’s trying into practically two dozen crashes involving autos that have been utilizingTesla’s Autopilot expertise, a few of which have been deadly.

It stays to be seen if Musk can maintain his personal subsequent to the comedic genius that’s Bowen Yang or Kate McKinnon. For his half, it seems like Yang isn’t thrilled with the choice both. After the announcement, Musk wrote on social, “Let’s find out just how live Saturday Night Live really is,” and Yang weighed in on Instagram, writing, “What the fuck does this even mean?”
I suppose the excellent news in regards to the present saying its visitor hosts prematurely is that individuals can determine now in the event that they want to tune in or give the present a tough go for the week (or tune in to see if he bombs).
Who needs to see Elon Musk host SNL, present of palms?
