That off-kilter tradition continues Saturday Elon Musk, Strange Technology Millionaire, will host the show. Miley Cyrus will join him as a music guest.
While “SNL” is not known for choosing hosts from the tech or business world, Musk is a surprising choice for a show that usually sticks with celebrities and comedians. Retention One of the richest men on the planet The show has seemed a bit unfocused in recent episodes, however;
But according to James Andrew Miller, author of “Live From New York, Absolute, Uncensored History Saturday Night Live”, this look makes sense because “SNL” is a cultural show and not an entertainment show.
Musk, for better or worse, is definitely a part of our culture.
“SNL has a tradition of going out for movie openings and TV events and other predictable hosting calls,” Miller said. “These are selected hosts from all walks of life, from all walks of life and from different backgrounds.”
Miller said this is one reason the show has been relevant for many years.
That’s why Musk’s choice makes sense from the audience’s point of view: his choice gets people talking, and it certainly has been since Musk was announced as host a few weeks ago. Musk can bring audiences who have not seen the show.
“It’s an opportunity to see someone who is more in the public eye, to see a big gap on cultural, financial and technological radars, and to see them in a different way,” Miller said.
Given how he has faced controversy in the past, Muskin’s choice has left “SNL” somewhat bumpy. For example, in an interview with the New York Times in September, Musk underestimated the risks of the Govt-19. He will not take the Govt vaccine.
Therefore, the unpredictable personality of the CEO, and the direct nature of the “SNL” can go many ways. He even pointed out his “wild card” personality During the promotion of the show, Promised “good-eh” because it was a Mother’s Day show.
After Musk was announced as the host, some of SNL’s own actors, such as Bowen Yang and Andrew Dismuk, took to Instagram. Express their dissatisfaction. In contrast, Pete Davidson expressed his interest in Musk.
“I’m so excited, man. I’m going to ask him a Tesla or something ***,” Davidson Said Seth Myers on “Late Night with Seth Myers” this week. “I don’t know why people leave, they say, ‘Oh, I can not believe Elon Musk is the host!’ I was like, ‘The guy who makes the earth better and creates cooler things and sends people to Mars?’
Miller pointed out that some would “be attracted to it” and some “would be disgusted by it.” It would be great with longtime executive producer Lorne Michaels.
“From the beginning, Lorne has made a point not to be altruistic. He’s not dipping his finger, just holding it in the air and trying to guess what people want,” Miller said. “The show is not afraid of controversy.”
So will Kasturi be a good presenter? Being in front of the camera is nothing new. He has had cameos on television shows such as Marvel’s “Iron Man 2”, “The Simpsons”, and has appeared in several episodes of “South Park”.
Tune in Saturday night to see if it translates to “SNL”.
