Charli XCX, Rosalía Will Tear Up The ‘SNL’ Stage Soon As Musical Guests
Charli XCX was originally supposed to perform in December.
Saturday Night Live its about to enter is hyperpop era. Queen of pots-and-pans music Charli XCX will finally take the stage on March 5 after having her December SNL performance canceled. Her forthcoming appearance on the show will be hosted by Moon Knight star Oscar Isaac.
They join a slew of recent hosts and musical guests recently announced to soon take the Saturday Night Live stage. This includes LCD Soundsystem, who will appear as the show’s musical guest next weekend on Feb. 26. Comedian John Mulaney is returning to host this episode and joining the five-timers club in the process. Then, on March 12, Rosalía will perform while The Batman’s Zoë Kravitz will host.
It’s nice to see SNL has done Charli XCX a solid and rescheduled her appearance. She was supposed to perform on SNL alongside host Paul Rudd on Dec. 18. A day before the show, she even revealed artists Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek would join her on stage to perform their new collaboration (and offer an Avengers-style moment for hyperpop heads), “New Shapes.”
However, on the day of the show, SNL announced the musical guests would no longer appear due to COVID-19 concerns. Shortly afterward, Charli XCX confirmed her performance was canceled on Instagram. “Due to the limited crew at tonight’s taping of SNL, my musical performances will no longer be able to go ahead,” she wrote. “I am devastated and heartbroken. Myself, Caroline, Christine, and all of our crews and teams have worked so hard all week alongside the SNL team to bring the most amazing music performance to life. It can’t happen this time, but I’ll be back!”
Charli XCX, who just released her latest single “Beg For You” with Rina Sawayama on Jan. 28, will drop her fifth studio album, Crash, on Friday, March 18. She previously performed on SNL in 2014.
March 12 will be Rosalía’s first time headlining as SNL’s musical guest, though she performed a duet of “La Noche de Anoche” with Bad Bunny during his appearance on the show last February. Rosalía’ will release her third studio album, Motomami, on the same day.
Fans can’t wait to see the stars take the SNL stage once again!
