Carly Rae Jepsen to Perform on ‘SNL’
Looks like the powers that be at Saturday Night Live decided to call her maybe: Carly Rae Jepsen will play the show's first episode of the month on April 4.
It is a pretty fitting role for the singer to appear on a show that affectionately pokes fun at major moments in pop culture — after all, the song she essentially built her career on, "Call Me Maybe," spawned a million puns, jokes and parodies.
Fans of the bubbly pop star will love watching Carly work the stage to some of her catchiest bubblegum tunes on the show, which will be hosted by Michael Keaton, according to Entertainment Weekly. Truth be told, we were sort of hoping Tom Hanks would host the episode just so we could see the actor and the popstar back in action together. Remember how well it went the last time they collaborated?
If Birdman's star and the "I Really Like You" singer aren't really your speed, maybe this will be: The show's next episode, set to air on April 11, will feature Mumford and Sons as the musical guest and will be hosted by Empire's resident scene stealer, Taraji P. Henson. (All hail Cookie Lyon.)
We think Carly will do an awesome job on the show — especially if she performs her hits like "Tonight I'm Getting Over You," "This Kiss" and "I Really Like You."
And needless to say, if she doesn't break out a performance of "Call Me Maybe," we'll obviously demand a recount.
