Rihanna + Eli Manning to Appear on ‘SNL’
Rihanna will serve as the musical guest on the May 5 episode of 'Saturday Night Live.' RiRi will be joined by host Eli Manning, the SuperBowl-winning quarterback of the New York Giants. The news was announced during this past Saturday's (April 14) episode.
We'd like to point out that May 5 is actually Chris Brown's birthday, so we're sure that media sources will begin speculating about whether or not Breezy will find a way to show up and hang with RiRi after her spot on 'SNL.'
While we know that the 'We Found Love' singer will turn in a killer performance, we sure hope that she will get to show off some of her comedy chops by engaging in a skit with Manning or some of the other series regulars. His Oreo commercials with his hilarious brother Peyton, also a Super Bowl winning QB, always make us laugh, so this should indeed be a hysterical, gut-busting ep of 'SNL.' We want to see RiRi get in on the fun.
Call this ep the "Reli" episode of the sketch show when the pop singer and the quarterback get together.
