Who’s playing on SNL tonight?
Olivia Rodrigo will star in the May 15 episode.
Rodrigo, 18, is an American actress and singer.
She began acting in theatrical productions during her elementary and middle school years, then moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.
Rodrigo appeared in two separate Disney series during his young career.
Rodrigo’s Driver’s License single was part of a Saturday Night Live sketch on the episode that aired on February 20.
Regé-Jean from Bridgerton plays the single – which he calls “my song” – on the jukebox to his pals at the pool hall.
His gang of “manly men”, including Pete Davidson, Mikey Day, Alex Moffat and Bowen Yang, don’t know what it is.
Alex Mofatt says, “I think I heard on the news or something that actually talks about the kids in high school Musica. I don’t know.”
Pete Davidson replies, “Oh, who? Vanessa Hudgens, Zac Efron, Sharpay – all that crew?”
Régé-Jean then insisted: “No, man. Olivia wrote it about Joshua Bassett who would now be with Sabrina Carpenter.
Who hosted last week’s show?
Tesla CEO Elon Musk hosted Saturday Night Live on May 8, and the episode was the third highest rated only behind Chris Rock and Dave Chapelle.
He made headlines after revealing he has Asperger’s syndrome.
The billionaire said he was the “first person” with Asperger’s syndrome to host the live-action sketch series “or at least the first person to admit it.”
The 49-year-old CEO said in his SNL monologue: “So I’m not going to have much eye contact with the cast tonight.
“But don’t worry, I’m pretty good at making ‘human’ run in emulation mode,” he told the audience.
SNL fans were initially disappointed when it was announced that Musk would host the episode.
One of the skits Musk performed in Gen Z Hospital was accused of cultural appropriation.

The skit, written by Che, starred Kate McKinnon, Mikey Day, Heidi Gardner, Ego Nwodim, Bowen Yang and SNL host Elon Musk.
In the skit, the cast used words and phrases like bestie, no cap, go off, king, sis, gang gang, and that’s the … for me.
While the skit was intended to joke about the slang used in Gen Z, many of these phrases are used in African American Vernacular English (AAVE). Many viewers believe that the use of these expressions is considered cultural appropriation.
