How to Watch

Watch Saturday Night Live Saturdays at 11:30/10:30c on NBC and next day on Peacock.  

Bad Bunny was the second Host of Saturday Night Live's 49th season on October 21—and, joining the ranks of Ariana Grande and Chance the Rapper, he pulled double duty as musical guest. It was the singer, rapper, and emerging actor's second time performing on the show after making his Studio 8H debut as musical guest in February 2021.

The episode's performances got not one, but two major celebrity introductions. First up: Lady Gaga, making a wholly unexpected appearance in a black motorcycle jacket with silver fringe; a visual reference to the cover of Bad Bunny's latest album, Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana.  

"Nueva Yooork," Lady Gaga yelled, welcoming everyone in Spanish above the audience's screams. "Puerto Rico y todo el corillo...Bad Bunny!”

Surprise guest star Pedro Pascal took the stage to introduce Bad Bunny's second song of the night, performed in an opulent restaurant set.

Is Bad Bunny a Lady Gaga fan?


In a 2020 E! News interview with Bad Bunny about his influences and the songs he loves, he shared that he'd been listening to Lady Gaga's Chromatica album during his lowest moments. 

"That album makes me feel more happy," Bad Bunny revealed. "When she dropped that album, I was in a really good moment, enjoying my life. I love that album."
