While Beck Bennett struggles to give Johnson a piggyback onto the Studio 8H stage, the Baywatch star happily switches spots, adding a lot more bodies to make the ultimate piggyback tower. Johnson also squeezes in some flirtation with Leslie Jones.
“Hey, baby…I want a cookie,” she says.
As Johnson points out in the promo, this weekend marks his induction to the Five-Timer’s Club, a week after Melissa McMcarthy earned her fifth hosting appearance. The episode will also be the final of a series of announced shows broadcast live across the nation in all four time zones.
Katy Perry will be on hand as musical guest to close out the 42nd season on a high note.
Johnson posted a behind-the-scenes photo from the SNL promo shoot on Instagram Wednesday. “I got you all. I am your safe place. Grab my body parts. I mean, hold on,” he joked.
The season finale of SNL airs this Saturday at 11:30 ET, 10:30 CT, 9:30 p.m. MT, and 8:30 PT.
