Elon Musk SNL live updates

TECHNOLOGY mogul and Tesla CEO Elon Musk will take center stage at Saturday Night Live on May 8, 2021.

Fans were stunned to learn that Musk would be hosting the long-running sketch comedy show.

Miley Cyrus is scheduled to be the musical guest.

The last new episode of SNL, which aired on April 10, featured Carey Mulligan as the host and Kid Cudi as the musical guest.

This will be Musk’s first time hosting or appearing on Saturday Night Live.

Miley hosted the show in 2011, with The Strokes as the musical guest, and returned to pull double duty in 2013 and 2015.

She then returned as the musical guest in 2017, 2018, and, most recently, 2020.

This will mark her seventh SNL gig, with her also having made a cameo appearance in a 2013 episode hosted by Edward Norton.

Apparently looking for help, Musk, took to Twitter on May 1 to ask for ideas and to try out jokes.

He cracked: “Baby Shark & Shark Tank merge to form Baby Shark Tank” and “Irony Man – defeats villains using the power of irony.”

The SNL cast has apparently been told they will not need to act alongside Musk, the self-proclaimed “Dogefather,” if they feel uncomfortable.

“Speaking historically, if a cast member has been that unhappy, they don’t have to do it,”a source told Page Six.

“[‘SNL’ boss Lorne Michaels] won’t ever make them do anything they don’t want to do.”

None of cast members were pulled out of SNL yet, according to Insider.

Musk has named himself the “Dogefather” ahead of his appearance on SNL, in a tweet that appears to have sent the cryptocurrency soaring.

  • WHAT DID SNL STAR CHRIS REDD SAY ABOUT MUSK?

    As Musk gears up to host Saturday Night Live there are a few things he needs to learn, however, fortunately for the Tesla boss cast member Chris Redd is around to lend a helping hand.

    On May 1, Musk asked his 53million followers on Twitter for help with a few “skit” ideas he had.

    “Throwing out some skit ideas for SNL. What should I do?” Musk asked Twitter.

    He then floated the joke: “Baby Shark & Shark Tank merge to form Baby Shark Tank” and “Irony Man – defeats villains using the power of irony”.

    However, before Musk gets too ahead of himself, Redd had a piece of advice: “First I’d call Em sketches,” the comedian replied to Musk.
