Am hosting SNL on May 8- Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 25, 2021
Musk will be hosting the program on Saturday, May 8th. Its guest will be American singer, songwriter and actress Miley Cyrus. Cyrus has featured on SNL multiple times over the years, starting in 2011 as a musical guest.
The new release was announced after SpaceX's crewed Crew Dragon Endeavor successfully docked with the International Space Station.
Business executives don't usually broadcast live shows on Saturday nights, but Musk is "far from the stuffy corporate type," according to an Associated Press article.
Apart from news interviews and press conferences, Musk has frequently appeared on CBS shows "Young Sheldon" and "The Big Bang Theory." His voice has also been heard on the animation shows South Park, The Simpsons, and Rick and Morty. Plus he had a cameo in Iron Man 2.
Saturday Night Live is an evening musical and humorous show. It has been on the air since 1975. In each episode of the program, comedy reprises are played out, in which the regular actors of the program and invited guests take part. In addition, the program is known for its satirical parodies of American and world politicians.
