The billionaire entrepreneur is accompanied by Miley Cyrus as a musical guest.


Saturday night live announced on Twitter today that they will make it to the moon next week as a billionaire and entrepreneur Elon Musk Hosted the show on May 8th. He is accompanied by a musical guest Miley Cyrus. This will be his first appearance on the show.

Those unfamiliar with Musk or his non-tech endeavors will be surprised that this isn’t his first time dipping his toe in the entertainment pool. He has had a number of other guest appearances (like himself) on both television and films. Musk also played a parody of himself in the animated series Rick and Mortyand even had a role in Ironman 2. Obviously, though, Musk is best known for being the founder of SpaceX, CEO of Tesla Inc., and one of the richest men in the world.

His musical guest, on the other hand, is no stranger to SNL. Cyrus has been on the show nearly half a dozen times as a musical guest, presenter, or guest star. Outside of her SNL appearances, she is best known for starring in the popular TV series Hannah Montana and she also has a very successful musical career under her own name. She is the daughter of a well-known country singer Billy Ray Cyrus.

What can the audience expect next week when Musk and Cyrus take the stage? It’s hard to predict. It is likely that, according to tradition, in at least one (if not many) of the skit, again playing Musk playing himself, or a caricature of himself. But do they get brave in the writer’s room and in the script sketches so that he dares to venture outside his comfort zone and really test his acting skills? Anyone curious to find out will have to tune in to NBC on Saturday, May 8th at 11:30 p.m. ET.
