Elton John is hosting Saturday Night Live this week; he’s also the musical guest.
The promos the show has released suggest an Elton fully confident he’s up for the task. Or at least the task of grappling with Kristen Wiig:
You may notice a theme in these two clips; in the first, Elton is called a “diva”; in the second, he refers to himself as a “bitch.” I’d be mildly surprised if we don’t get one about the impending royal wedding with Elton playing the Queen.
It’s been a couple of weeks since there was a new SNL; a lot has happened in the world. Those twin babies became an internet sensation; two girls got booted off American Idol during (what else?) Elton John-theme-week; and I’ll bet SNL has heard that there’s a lot going on with America’s foreign policy.
What are your guesses for the sketch themes SNL will address?
Please suggest and opine away, below: now, during, and immediately after the show airs. Then come back early tomorrow morning for a piping-hot, fresh review of the show; thanks.
