Here is what happened:
In a new promo shared on Dec. 13, Kate McKinnon dressed as Macaulay Culkin’s Kevin McCallister from Home Alone 2, expressing her desire to host Saturday Night Live. Dressed in Kevin’s iconic green pea coat, blue sweater, and pom-pom hat, complete with red gloves hanging from her wrists, Kate made her holiday request while addressing the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. She humorously requested to host SNL with musical guest Billie Eilish, acknowledging that it was a big ask but was at the top of her Christmas wish list.
Kate also expressed her eagerness to host the show, stating, “I miss the stage, and I miss [Rudy] Giuliani teeth.” Her former castmate Kenan Thompson then informed her that she was indeed hosting the show. Kate was initially surprised by the news, joking that she dropped her phone in the toilet in September. Despite her initial disbelief, Kate’s return to SNL promises to be nothing short of hilarious.
As an SNL host, Kate McKinnon joins a long line of celebrities who have filled the coveted role, such as Tom Hanks, Jon Hamm, Melissa McCarthy, Justin Timberlake, Steve Martin, Scarlett Johansson, Betty White, Dwayne Johnson, and Alec Baldwin.
