Megan Fox Hosts SNL Premiere
The Season Premier of Saturday Night Live will kick off its 35th season this Saturday, September 26th in style. The beautiful Megan Fox will host the premiere with musical guest U2. Ever since Megan’s performance in Transformers she has fascinated the entertainment industry as one of the most attractive celebrities on earth.
This premier is definitely geared to be one of the sexiest episodes in SNL history. The promotional videos are obviously pushing that subject, but the truth is we all know she has the moves to pull it off.
The bombshell attempted to convince the producers to air the episode last week so she could promote her new movie Jennifer’s Body, but was unable to. The Horror/Comedy unfortunately did not do so well and fell short of $7 million for the weekend. This does not in any way diminish the anticipation of her hosting this weekend. As an actress, this is her opportunity to showcase a comedic side we have not seen much of.
Megan Fox is one of Hollywood’s most popular young actresses. She is well known for her break out role in the box-office hit and Steven Spielberg-produced action film, “Transformers” and the second-installment, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.”
Although this will be Megan’s first appearance on SNL, it will be U2’s third time. The bands will have to take a break from their tour for their SNL performance. Their appearance on SNL falls in between their East Coast dates and immediately before their show in DC.
Earlier this year, U2 released their critically acclaimed twelfth studio album, “No Line On The Horizon,” and are about to launch the U.S. portion of their 360˚Tour, performing two sold out nights at New York’s Giant Stadium just before they perform on SNL. U2 has sold more than 145 million albums worldwide and have won 22 Grammy Awards, more than any other band.
In the coming weeks, viewers have a lot to look forward to. SNL is kicking off their season with four consecutive live shows. Following Megan Fox and U2 will be Ryan Reynolds and musical guest Lady Gaga.
Ryan Reynolds, who handles host duties October 3, recently starred in two of the most popular and highest grossing films of the year, “The Proposal,” and the X-Men spin-off, “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”.
Lady Gaga will be making her SNL debut that night. She is a multi-talented singer-songwriter with a flair for theatrics. Her debut album, “The Fame” has remained atop the Billboard U.S. Electronic Albums Chart. She is only the third artist in history to have three #1 hits from a debut album – “Just Dance,” “Poker Face” and “LoveGame.” No doubt many people will be tuned in — not only to see her perform, but to check out what she’s wearing. She definitely has a flair for the dramatic and bizarre.
Drew Barrymore will host on October 10 with musical guest Regina Spektor. They will be followed by actor Gerard Butler with Shakira performing on October 17.
