Lady Gaga is pulling double duty as host and musical guest on this week’s Saturday Night Live — but while we know the “Bad Romance” singer can be outrageous, the question remains — “Can she be funny?”
The following set of promo videos is, alas, inconclusive — mostly because the concepts (all co-starring Kenan Thompson) are as lukewarm as hour-old tea.
There’s Thompson rocking a meat watch, there’s the duo talking in heightened “thee-ay-ter” voices, there’s the pop star explaining “Lady Gaga” isn’t her real name — and Thompson responding with mock outrage. I won’t spoil the punch line in the promo centered around Tinkerbell living for the applause, as long as you don’t get your hopes too high.
Press play below to watch all the spots, then tell us whether these promos make you hopeful or worried for Gaga’s hosting gig.
