Upcoming Saturday Night Live musical guest and host Miley Cyrus and Elon Musk joked about blasting off to the moon together in a series of tweets on Wednesday (Apr. 28). The unlikely duo, who will visit Studio 8H on May 8, engaged in a back-and-forth kicked off when a fan posted a meme of Musk in Miley gear riding a wrecking ball with caption, “Alright Elon just… hear me out,” seemingly suggesting a collab between the Tesla/Space X boss and the singer.
Musk appeared amused, responding, “Might be something there haha.” So, of course, Miley had to take it a step further, responding with a rocketship, moon and Saturn emoji and the message, “@elonmusk I’m down if you are! #MileyAndMusk to the moon!” Billionaire Musk is making his hosting debut, while SNL vet Cyrus is returning just over a year after her surprise April 2020 performance during the second at-home pandemic episode, where she performed a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here.”
While it’s unknown if we’ll get a MuskCyrus mash-up, Miley confirmed that she’s bringing her duet pal The Kid LAROI along for her SNL appearance. “Live from New York with little bro…. @thekidlaroi @nbcsnl,” she tweeted on Wednesday night alongside an image of the two chilling on one of Cyrus’ road cases.
Miley and The Kid will drop their cover of his song “Without You” on Friday (Apr. 30).
