I'm aware of who Halsey is, but I'm pretty surprised she would be regarded as a big enough music star to also be hosting.

I don’t know her music but she’s a beautiful woman.

I only know that song she did with the Chainsmokers but, from the info on her wiki bio, she is a pretty interesting person.

She would be more beautiful if she ditched that short dude haircut.

I bet a million dollars she will perform this song

I'm sure she makes her haircut choices on what some washed old dude finds beautiful.

Pretty sure that's a typo, Don Cheadle will be next week. I had never heard of Halsey before now, but thought she was pretty cool.

I guess you are correct because I think she is a very beautiful young woman.

So back in November she gave Lorne a blow-job and said how much she has always loved SNL, and here we are.

I don't know who she is, I didn't like her music, she's clearly not an actress or comedian, so par for the course with SNL these days.

She acted somewhat on the Showtime show Roadies, playing herself.

That blackface sketch was kind of ironic considering SNL's own history with blackface.

Re: SNL (S44S12) -- 02/09/19 -- H & MG: Halsey

This might be the first time I never heard of a musical guest who's also hosting. They're usually popular enough to do double-duty - which means they're popular enough for me to know who they are.

Her music did nothing for me, but she seemed very natural and comfortable in the skits. She did better than most actual actors who've hosted.

This was the first episode I think I've seen where the cue cards were plainly visible in a sketch. I'm sure it must have happened before though.

Thats me where everybody says I look like I am in my 20's though I am 45.

I don't think her presence lifted any sketches and she was just there.

Was she celebrating black history month with the painting?

There seems to be a lot of convenient forgetfulness regarding Billy Crystal's Sammy Davis Jr. which was for the record spot on hilarious at the time.

Halsey was great but a lot of the skits were me, even the cold open was pretty bad. I think one of the biggest misses of the show was the Democrats in congress skit, the intro went on forever and the tiny bit after with McTrump taking credit for more women in congress was lame.

Yeah, but Eddie Murphy wore whiteface in an SNL sketch, so that evens it out, right?

I mean, it was a noticeable change when she wore a wig. In that Black Trumps prerecorded skit I thought it was a new cast member or something.

That was among my earliest memories watching the show, along with Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood & the 60 Minutes defective novelties bit.
