How to Watch

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

Travis Kelce!

The NFL athlete will be making his Saturday Night Live hosting debut. He has clearly been celebrating many major milestones lately, as he's also the tight end for the Kanas City Chiefs, who recently won the 2023 Super Bowl.

“I was a huge [Chris] Farley, [Will] Ferrell, [Jimmy] Fallon kind of guy growing up. I used to watch Saturday Night Live with my mother. And it's an absolute honor and privilege to be hosting SNL,” he said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

“It's gonna be great!” Fallon exclaimed.

“I am so nervous for that, oh my gosh,” Kelce responded.

Kelsea Ballerini!

The country star will also be making her debut on the Saturday Night Live stage. Her newest EP is titled Rolling Up the Welcome Mat and was released on February 14. Ballerini has clearly been keeping busy lately; her U.S tour Heartfirst also kicks off in March.

Her hits include “Miss Me More,” “Love Me Like You Mean It,” and “Dibs." You can also see Kelly Clarkson singing an emotional cover of Ballerini’s song “Peter Pan” here.

In November 2022, she performed a catchy song at the Country Music Awards with both Kelly Clarkson and Carly Pearce. The tune was titled “You’re Drunk: Go Home." 

“I bet you still live with your mama, down in her basement, tryin' to be Nirvana, playing with your guitar all afternoon,” Ballerini sang the clever opening lyrics with sass during the performance.

We have no doubt that the songstress will absolutely blow us away during her debut SNL performances!
