Does Sia hide her face because she has stage fright or because she doesn't want anyone to know she's pushing fifty?

Re: SNL (S41E04) -- 11/07/15 -- H: Donald Trump -- MG: SIA

That got really bad really fast. They couldn't even have done a Donald Trump's House of Wings? It could have been a going out of business sale because he thinks he's going to be President, and they could have included other songs that rhyme with Trump like "Trump" by Kriss Kross, or "Trump Around" by House of Pain. I'm sure they could have gotten Seth, Amy and Maya to come back, or at least do it with new actors (and Kenan).

I mean, that took me 30 seconds to come up with, and it's already better than half of what was on last night.

Larry David and the porn girls

Everything else

Cecily Strong was in a ton of sketches last night. Either someone in production really hates her, or she drew a short straw. I think she was on more last night than every other episode this season combined.

That is not something anyone but you remembers. It is not a famous sketch in SNL history.

If Sia insists on covering her face, or refuses to face the audience, when she performs that is her prerogative. The shows book her knowing what they are going to get.

However, the schtick of having some dancer jumping and writhing around her is played out.

There was very few laughs but I imagine SNL won't care because the ratings will be yuuuge.

I find it funny that Larry David has done more for SNL this season than when he was an actual writer on the show.

Re: SNL (S41E04) -- 11/07/15 -- H: Donald Trump -- MG: SIA

Every sketch Trump was in was brutal, not even really because of his acting but because of writing. It's as if they went through a list with him, "Are you willing to do this? How about this?" and then wrote sketches around the ideas he okayed. Laser harp felt like something that's been collecting dust in the writers' room for years, like they didn't want to use up a good sketch on Trump.

The Twitter one might have had potential, but the studio audience turned on it quickly... it's as if they actually thought Trump was actually coming up with those 'tweets' himself. I'm curious if it came off differently live since they didn't have the Tweet onscreen overlays?

Worst "SNL" episode I've ever sat through. And that's saying something.

Maybe she wants privacy and a tool to avoid the paparazzi stalking her?

They did the house of wings with Jeter and Brady I think too and it is a famous sketch.

Maybe the writers expected Trump to carry the show with his mouth and personality and got lazy?

Usually the best SNL shows come after a long break but this was not one of them.

She's only 39 but yeah I thought she was some 20 year old pop singer until I saw what she looks like.

I read an interview with Cecily Strong where she said she told Lorne that if he was going to remove her from Weekend Update, all she requested was that she get a lot more sketches and he told her he would do that--and last year and this one, that's exactly what's happened. But yes, some episodes it seems like there isn't a sketch without her. (And I'm ok with that!)

Loved the House of Wings sketch and remembered it ever since, even those I've forgotten pretty much everything else. When Buzzfeed or whoever "dug it up" a little while ago, I was shocked that people didn't know about it.

Thank you! Yes, I always thought it was well known since it was a recurring sketch (with Jeter and Brady). I always loved it.

Seth and Kenan even talked about it on his show a while back:

Holy Shit!!! Considering how record companies always sign artists based on looks first, you almost wonder if her label didn't nudge her toward this covering up your looks thing as a form of mystery or something.

Certainly can't put that face front and center on album covers. Wow.

Even though she's only 39, it looks like she's already had some work done of her face too.

The studio audience's reaction to the mention of the sketch was overwhelming.

It's like SNL wanted to sabotage Trump's campaign by making this the least funny episode in years. I would guess Trump had final say over content.
