Speculation is swirling online on who will be this weekend’s musical guest on Saturday Night Live after Morgan Wallen, was asked not to perform following a viral party video of him making out with women at a crowded party surfaced last weekend (stories HERE and HERE).
Wallen himself made the announcement in a heartfelt apology on his Instagram account Wednesday, but the show hasn’t announced a replacement yet. Wallen added that Lorne Michaels was supportive and could possibly invite him back at a later date. He did not test positive for COVID 19.
Saturday Night Live has taken extensive measures to protect their production from the pandemic which could shut down everything down if not carefully monitored. Last weekend Chris Rock hosted with Megan thee Stallion providing the music in the season premiere.
Comedian and Actor Bill Burr is hosting this weekend and promoted the show with Keenan Thompson without the usual third musician participating. He cracked a joke about possibly doing the music too which was quickly shut down in humorous fashion by Thompson.
The absence of a musical guest could provide an opportunity for the show to draw up some interest with a mystery reveal. I think it should be another country star. Billboard is running a poll (link HERE). I voted for Maren Morris but Dua Lipa is currently leading.
