What do you get when you combine one of Saturday Night Live‘s best hosts with one of Saturday Night Live‘s most interesting musical guests? Why, probably the most anticipated episode of Saturday Night Live in quite some time! Not only is the NBC sketch comedy series blessing us with a Tina Fey hosting stint May 7, but they’re also closing the season with Justin Timberlake — with Lady Gaga as musical guest. That’s right: The singer is set to return to the SNL stage for the first time since performing 2009, but I’m left hoping she’ll also enjoy some comedic airtime during the show.
Because, really, SNL writers, it’s time: We need to see a Lady Gaga-Stefon skit. Come on, how can you resist? It. Would. Have. Everything: Fame monsters, motorcycle minotaurs, hollow eggs where you can spend your Saturday afternoons, angry Latino activist groups, Rebecca Black, and, of course, the cat from your bodega.
Who’s with me? And who else is wondering if she’ll wear something better suited to performing in Studio 8H this time?
