Miley Cyrus to host 'Saturday Night Live'

miley-cyrusImage Credit: Amy Graves/WireImage.comMiley Cyrus will host Saturday Night Live on March 5. The 18-year-old won’t necessarily be singing, as the show will also feature a still unannounced musical guest. But Cyrus might have an opportunity to share the stage with Vanessa Bayer, the cast member who frequently lampoons her during “The Miley Cyrus Show” sketch.

    I guess that’s pretty cool.

    (Esp. the part where she won’t necessarily be singing.)

    • Wendy

      Usually, the hosts that ellicit the least amount of hope and the most pre-show derision tend to do great. Taylor Swift was amazing while uber-respected thespian DeNiro tanked and well-liked and solidly reviewed (in Mad Men) January Jones utterly bombed. Maybe Myley Cyrus eill be a hit.

      • Mr. Holloway

        January Jones is “well-liked”?

      • MattyB

        January Jones is well-liked by critics and fans of Mad Men. And fans of avant-garde fashion.

        And my pants.

      EW, enough! You guys follow this no-talent’s every move, but its been 3 days and you guys still haven’t recognized the release of The Strokes’ first single in 5 years, “Under Cover of Darkness”, which is absolutely awesome by the way…This is rather inexcusable EW, you guys better stop ignoring them and give us some serious Strokes coverage in March when their new album comes out!

      • A

        FYI – They ALWAYS have stories on who will be hosting SNL, so just calm down!!

      • Kim E

        How did I not know about the Strokes releasing a new single! Will listen to ASAP!

      • Strokes

        Maybe the strokes will be musical guests…

      • Color Me Impressed

        @KimE: You wouldn’t know about it because its been getting hardly any publicity, but yes it is absolutely worth listening to ASAP; @Strokes: Yes, in a perfect world that would be awesome, but for some odd reason the Strokes only ever seem to perform on Letterman…

    • Chris

      The Miley Cyrus sketch is the best recurring sketch on SNL right now. I can’t wait to see what they do with it.

  • No thank you


  • no singing

    Please don’t let her sing. Please.

    • Jean Guy Levesque

      Please make her wear a MASK for the whole show. Horseface Miley is a threat to all beautiful things. Vive la Quebec!!!!!!!!

      • Brock

        yeah i’ll watch if she wears a mask. I guess ugly people really can make it in hollywood.

      • ash

        You guys are mean. I’m not a fan but she is not ugly.
        Although I do hate her ratty hair extensions – they make her look trashy.

      • spence

        she’s fugly and a horseface. thanks jean guy levesque, i knew i wasn’t the only one who thought she looks like francis. how about a horse feeder instead of a mask.

  • Matt G

    Vanessa Bayer, watch your back!

    • Brenda Barrett

      I loathe this talentless twit but will tune in in hopes that Vanessa will do Miley in front of Miley.

    • Yolanda

      Who is Vanessa Bayer?

      • KC

        They guy who played Jethro’s wife?

    • LOL

      Vanessa Bayer > Miley Cyrus

  • Erica

    SNL is really sinking.

    • SXiPPY

      I really have to agree with that, as the writing isn’t funny and only provides a snicker here or there periodically. However, even there choice of hosts often suck or the musical guest is some top 40 artist that is already overexposed. Gone are the days when SNL was worth staying up for.

  • Ben

    Guess she asked her agent to book her a gig where she could score some more weed.

    • Mary

      Best comment of the day

  • UGH

    She looks like Lassie in that picture.

    • Tess Tickles

      I would do her doggy, ruff ruff

    • Dan

      how dare you insult Lassie like that!

    • Brock

      lol that’s the best comment ever!

  • SM

    Really? Really?

  • KC

    Maybe her dad will be the musical guest!

    • Ali


  • Jerry

    Can’t wait till Jets Qb Mark Sanchez finds out!

  • Mike

    Well, overall her hosting is going to suck………. BUT her and Vanessa Bayer together is going to be amazing!!

  • Melissa


  • ®ustymustdie

    why bother, just put out the sex tape already. everyone knows it’s only a matter of time before she films one. Train wreck in waiting….

  • It’s a fact

    Ugh – Make it stop. To SNL and NBC – I and all my friends and anyone in earshot of me will NOT be watching. Hope you have another way of getting ratings and money. Bong Queen does not have my vote.

    • UGH

      I would if I could!

      • Holly

        I see what you did there.

  • Bob

    I kind of think this is a good idea. If she’s willing to poke fun at herself, the possibilities are endless.

    • It’s a fact

      Bob – I think just her acting ability will be enough of a JOKE. Add in her – “I wanna be an adult” attitude, we will be seeing next D-list star in the making.
