NBC's sketch-comedy series Saturday Night Live continues its run of new episodes tonight, Saturday, Feb. 3, at 11:30 p.m. ET. Season 49 episode 11 features Ayo Edebiri as the host with musical guest Jennifer Lopez.
Which host so far this season has been your favorite? There have been so many great ones! From Pete Davidson, Nate Bargatze, and Emma Stone. Euphoria and Saltburn star Jacob Elordi also made his hosting debut on SNL this season. It was a lot of fun watching the actor take on a fun role when we are used to seeing him tackle dark and serious characters. Now, you may not recognize Ayo Edebiri's name as well as other hosts before her, but you have been missing out, my friend! No worries, we're here to help and inform!
Who is SNL host Ayo Edebiri?
Ayo Edebiri is known for her role as chef Sydney Adamu in the FX comedy-drama The Bear, a character the star has played since the series premiere in 2022. Edebiri has won a Golden Globe Award and a Primetime Emmy Award for her work in The Bear. Additionally, the actress has worked as a writer for the animated sitcom Big Mouth, in which Edebiri also serves as a voice actor. Who does Edebiri give her voice to? Mosaic Missy, Maya, and in 2020, Edebiri replaced Jenny Slate as Missy.
The talented star also worked as a writer for What We Do in the Shadows. Needless to say, the SNL host is no stranger to comedy. Edebiri fits right in!
Which songs will Jennifer Lopez perform on SNL?
Jennifer Lopez's ninth studio album, This Is Me...Now, is the follow-up to her third album, This Is Me...Then. The singer-songwriter-actress stars in This Is Me...Now: A Love Story, a musical film that is a companion to the release of the new album. The movie will premier on Prime Video on the same day, Feb. 16. While the songs J. LO will perform on Saturday Night Live have not been announced, it's a safe bet the star will perform "Can't Get Enough," the first released single to her upcoming album. As for the second song, it's anyone's guess! We're hoping we hear another song featured in This Is Me...Now.
