SNL - 10/20/12 - H: Bruno Mars - MG: Bruno Mars

Well, the trend is to have someone do double-duty at least once a season (Jagger in Season 37, Elton John in Season 36, and Taylor Swift or Jennifer Lopez in Season 35)... so we get a relative unknown. Let's see how he does...

So is this one the 'official' Halloween episode? It would be perfect next week but i think it's a rerun. I love 'holiday' themed shows!

I'm not a fan of his, but I'd hardly call him a relative unknown. The kid has talent, but I hate his music. If that makes any sense. That said it's an odd choice right now, he isn't nearly as popular as he was about a year ago.

On the other hand, he can sing.

I have zero expectations for this episode. Half the fun of SNL is seeing actors or athletes step out of roles we are used to seeing them in. Who the hell is Bruno Mars?

Exactly. I've heard the name before, but I couldn't tell you what he looks or sounds like.

I'm shocked that so many of you have no clue who Bruno is or consider him an unknown. I've barely followed the music industry the past couple of years and even I know who he is, and actually like his music and his throwbacks to MJ. He is a very talented performer.

I was really impressed with Bruno's Grammy 2011 performance, the homage to 60s Doo Wop. Besides his huge hits from his first album (Grenade, Just the Way You Are, Lazy Song), he has several writing and singing credits for other big hits like F* You, Nothing on You, Billionaire, Right Round, Bow Chicka Wow Wow, Young Wild and Free. Decent body of work for two years. I guess it helps that I have two teenage daughters too, so pop music plays in the house.

I can always count on DVDTalk to not know who popular musicians are.

So you're either 60 and/or you've been completely oblivious to musical trends for at least the last 5 years.

Neither is really something to brag about.

Have you heard of this up-and-comer named Adele?

I'm 41 and have been completely oblivious to music since the mid-late 90s. To me Green Day is contemporary. Unless it's some smokin' hot chick singing, chances are I have no idea who a new artist is. I'm not braging.

I know who Bruno Mars is (and have some of his albums/singles) so I agree that the dude can sing, but as was said before, musicians and athletes have a way of throwing themselves into the show and seeing what happens.

Calling him an "unknown" was a bad choice of words. My bad.

I was hoping either the host or the musical guest would change by now, but no such luck. Stocking the fridge with beer now...

It's rumored Jeremy Renner is hosting Nov. 17th. So I guess we have that to look forward to.

As far as I can tell from reading these threads, every musical guest SNL ever has is either 1) somebody who nobody has ever heard of, but also they totally suck, or 2) the Foo Fighters.

My mom told me once that she had to change her panties every time she listened to a Bruno Mars song. It was the most disturbing thing I ever heard, so I won't be watching this.

Bruno singing as Green Day was pretty good.
