Hot Update: Elon Musk Will Be Hosting May 8th Episode of SNL
Looks like Elon Musk wants to explore a new industry! After dominating the automobile and technology sectors with Tesla and SpaceX for more than a decade, Musk is all set to enter the entertainment industry with his Saturday Night Live (SNL) debut.
On April 25, 2021, SNL announced through its official Twitter handle that Musk will be hosting the May 8, 2021 episode, with Miley Cirus as his musical guest. The episode, which will mark Musk’s first and Miley’s sixth appearance on the show, will air after two memorable events for the business magnate.
Let’s find out what these events are.
Enthralling moments before Musk’s SNL debut
The first captivating moment before the Tesla CEOs SNL debut was the launch of SpaceX Crew Dragon’s second flight. On April 23, 2021, Musk’s SpaceX crew launched its second Dragon flight to the International Space Station.
The launch was one-of-its-kind as it was the first time an all-American astronaut group traveled on American-made rockets from U.S. soil since the Space Shuttle mission in July 2011. It was also a historic moment for the Crew Dragons for two reasons: firstly, because it was their maiden flight with astronauts on board, and secondly, because it made them the first private company to launch a crewed spaceflight. Another unique thing about the successful flight was that it opened the doors for other commercial space travel missions in the future.
The second stirring moment for Musk will be on May 4, 2021, when he will celebrate his son’s first birthday, X Æ A-12, with singer Grimes. Previously on March 8, 2021, Musk had shared a sweet picture of his small family on Twitter. In the photograph, Musk, X Æ A-12, and Grimes were posing at a small town in South Texas where the self-made billionaire wants to build a city named Starbase.
Earlier on March 2, 2021, Houston Chronicle had reported that Musk wishes to rename and incorporate Boca Chica Village, the place where SpaceX is currently making prototypes for the Starship aircraft. A day after the report was published, Musk confirmed through his tweet that the city’s name would be “Starbase.”
The 46th Season of SNL
Throughout SNL’s history, the hosts have either belonged to Hollywood, sports, or political backgrounds. Although Musk is not the first business Moghul on the show, he’s definitely a surprising choice.
Before him, the 46th season featured hosts like Carey Mulligan, Daniel Kaluuya, Maya Rudolph, Nick Jonas, Regé-Jean Page, Regina King, Dan Levy, and many other stars. Speaking of the guest list, it had Kid Cudi, St. Vincent, Jack Harlow, Bad Bunny, Nathaniel Rateliff, Phoebe Bridgers, and other A-listers of the music industry gracing the show.
