Saturday Night Live Season 45 Premiere Clips and Billie Eilish Performances

-

NBC has released clips from the Saturday Night Live Season 45 premiere, which featured Zombieland: Double Tap star Woody Harrelson returning as host for the fourth time. Billie Eilish made her first appearance as SNL musical guest and recently announced her Where Do We Go? World Tour for 2020.

The show opened with the “Impeachment” Cold Open, in which Donald Trump (Alec Baldwin) calls those closest to him including Rudy Giuliani (Kate McKinnon), Kanye West (Chris Redd), William Barr (Aidy Bryant), Mike Pence (Beck Bennett), Kim Jong-un (Bowen Yang), Jeanine Pirro (Cecily Strong) Eric and Don Jr. (Alex Moffat, Mikey Day), and Liev Schreiber. It was followed by Woody Harrelson’s monologue, in which he talks about becoming a fashionista.

In addition to the Cold Open and monologue, the Saturday Night Live Season 45 premiere also included the Weekend Update, the two performances by Billie Eilish, and commercials such as a Downton Abbey one that is actually for… Joker?

Saturday Night Live is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.




Next up, Phoebe Waller-Bridge will make her SNL hosting debut on Oct. 5. She created and stars in the award-winning comedy series Fleabag, nominated for 11 Emmy Awards, and also garnered praise as the writer and showrunner of the first season of the celebrated series Killing Eve, which she continues to executive produce.

Global superstar and 10-time Grammy Award winner Taylor Swift makes her third appearance as SNL’s musical guest and will perform songs off her record-breaking and critically-acclaimed new album, Lover. She also stars in the upcoming film Cats, due Dec. 20.

Award-winning actor David Harbour will host SNL for the first time on Oct. 12. Harbour stars in Netflix’s global hit series Stranger Things, dark comedy Frankenstein’s Monster’s Monster, Frankenstein and the upcoming Marvel Studios film Black Widow.

Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum selling Camila Cabello will make her SNL music guest debut. Cabello recently released Senorita with Shawn Mendes, which debuted #1 on iTunes worldwide and broke Spotify’s record for the biggest debut from a male/female duet in its history.

Saturday Night Live Season 45 will also feature Kristen Stewart, hosting for the second time, and former SNL cast member Eddie Murphy closing out 2019 with his first appearance as host since 1984.
