Elton John will appear on Saturday Night Live this weekend as both the host and musical guest. To promote Elton‘s appearance on the show, SNL released 2 promo videos for his appearance … both of which are, IMHO, kinda funny. Episodes of SNL are very hit and miss for me … let’s hope this weekend’s ep is more of a hit than a miss.
He is known for having a good sense of fun and a quirky style. So it is no surprise that Elton John is the latest celebrity up for hosting duties on U.S sketch comedy show, Saturday Night Live. The 64-year-old singer will not only host the popular programme this coming April 2, but will also be a musical guest. For his first time hosting the show, Elton does a throw back to English comedian Benny Hill. Stills for the promo show the singer running around in the style of the legendary comedic actor. He is seen chasing SNL cast-mate Jason Sudeikis around the studio after Jason claims to have stolen his sunglasses.
These clips are cute, I am really looking forward to the ep. I had no idea that Elton had never hosted the show before. Considering how long he’s been in the biz, you’d expect that he might’ve hosted the show a time or two. I’m pretty sure he’s been a musical guest before, tho. I know Elton John can be funny … let’s hope the folks at SNL give him the right material to be funny with :)
