Simu Liu and Saweetie recently made their debut on Saturday Night Live (SNL) with Simu hosting and Saweetie as the musical guest lighting up the stage. Simu's opening monologue went smooth and set it up for a great night of sketches. His natural demeanor and delivery were favored by entertainment critics.
Saweetie took the stage twice, performing with a live band and full choreography. We have to give it up to Saweetie as we continue to see her elevate her artistry in every live performance she's recently had. The slowed down, almost uptempo jazzy opening version of her Tap In performance made for a great change of pace and delivery. Check out her performances below.

Up next for SNL in December is Billie Eilish, Paul Rudd, and Charlie XCX!
Saturday Night Live is returning for three consecutive shows this month, and Saweetie is set to be a musical guest alongside Shang-Chi star Simu Liu, making his SNL hosting debut. Along with Saweetie and Simu, Jonathan Majors of Love Craft Country will also be making his hosting debut with Taylor Swift as the musical guest.
If you think Saweetie slowed down and was about to take a break before the release of her album next year, you definitely thought wrong. The Icy Queen is not only set to hit the SNL stage but is also featured on Brazilian Super Star Annita's latest track, "Faking Love." Check out Anitta's catchy hook and Saweetie's fire and empowering verses in the official music video below.

Mark your calendars! Driver's License and Deja Vu singer, Olivia Rodrigo announced she'll be on the long-time running NBC comedy sketch show, Saturday Night Live (SNL). She made the announcement that she's the musical guest on an upcoming episode on May 15th with guest host, Keegan Michael Key. This will be Olivia's first time on the SNL and we can't wait to see if she'll make a cameo on a sketch.
This comes after SNL did a sketch about the song, Driver's License with Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page. Basically a group of guys are at a bar shooting some pool. Regé turns plays the song and at first the guys aren't into it. As it plays on, the guys sing along and poke fun of references to the song and their own exes. Now we get to see her perform the song live on the SNL stage!
Seems like nothing's stopping Olivia's rise to stardom. She recently sat down with MTV to talk about both her chart topping hits. You have to see her perform the songs stripped down and with a new flare. Olivia gets personal and even answers questions about how the songs came to be.
