Look out Miley Cyrus — the ‘SNL’ season premiere is going to have a new star, if Hillary Clinton has anything to do with it! Hills is going to make a cameo on the episode, and make it the most talked-about sketch of the night!
Hillary Clinton, 67, wants to be president, but she apparently has another career goal in mind if that doesn’t pan out: Saturday Night Live star! She will be appearing on the SNL season premiere on October 3 — you know, the one that Miley Cyrus is hosting! Can the show handle two mega-stars taking the stage at the same time?
Hillary is going to join SNL‘s resident Hillary, Kate McKinnon, in a skit poking fun at herself, according to the New York Times! If it’s anything like the last time Kate put on her pantsuit, it’s going to be absolutely hilarious! Kate was lauded for her killer Hillary impression in a Season 40 skit, where the presidential hopeful was shown as an egotistic, little bit out of touch candidate who had trouble making herself seem relatable.
Hillary’s reps have not confirmed her top-secret appearance, and the plans for her appearance might change before showtime. SNL has a history of making last-minute changes in their dress rehearsals, and Lorne Michaels is notorious for keeping celebrity cameos hush hush. The cat’s out of the bag on this one!
This, of course, isn’t Hillary’s first time gracing the SNL stage. She appeared alongside Amy Poehler (the then-Hillary) in 2008 during her presidential campaign for a fantastic sketch that mocked (then candidate) President Obama‘s press praise, and the heat she was getting for her loud laugh.
We’re so excited to see Miley completely crush her double duties hosting and performing as the musical guest on the show, but a cameo from the person who could become the first female president is pretty cool (sorry) too! Maybe they’ll be in a sketch together! Better yet, what if they duet??
