Troye Sivan is Saturday Night Live’s musical guest this weekend (Jan. 20), and he took part in a series of funny promos with host Jessica Chastain and SNL favorite Kenan Thompson.
“Jessica, you play a lot of tough, no nonsense characters in your movies,” Thompson noted at one point, to which Chastain grabs him by the collar and says, “Don’t you dare tell me what characters I played or I swear on Troye’s life I will end you.” Sivan is seen backing up in defense, and applauding with a hint of leftover nervousness when the fake scene comes to a close.
The singer took to Twitter Thursday (Jan. 18) in anticipation of the big day, posting a photo of a prompter slide that reads, “Hi, I’m Troye Sivan and I’m the musical guest on SNL this weekend!”
