This marks Cyrus’ first turn ruling the roost at Studio 8H, though current cast member Vanessa Bayer has done her darnedest this season to bring Miley’s Southern-fried “essence” to many a broadcast, as host of the recurring aforementioned sketch.
Of course, one burning question comes to mind: Will Cyrus follow in the footsteps of Sarah Palin, Lindsay Lohan and New York Gov. David Paterson by confronting SNL‘s send-up of herself? And will Miley guest on “her own” show? And, like, who will be musical guest? And will Miley herself sing? And will her dad Billy Ray tag along? And, like, will she make fun of her bong scandal?
How do you think Miley will fare as SNL host? Russell Brand hosts the long-running sketch series this weekend, with musical guest Chris Brown.
