The singer is set to host the show's season debut this Saturday
Dear Miley Cyrus,
Can we talk?
Fresh from hosting the MTV VMAs in August (and inspiring interesting complaints viewers shared with the FCC), you’re slated to host the debut episode of Saturday Night Live‘s 41st season this weekend. Based on your last hosting stint alone, we already know this is a must-watch event. And even though we’re sure you have a few treats planed for fans, we have a few requests that must be discussed.
1. Bring Back "The Miley Cyrus Show"
Remember that time you hosted SNL in 2011? You sat across from Vanessa Bayer as she imitated you during the hilarious sketch known as “The Miley Cyrus Show.” Meanwhile, you played Justin Bieber. As Bayer’s version of you might say, it was all pretty cool.
2. Deliver Your Monologue in a Turtleneck
Your cover of Lana Del Rey‘s “Summertime Sadness” is so good. We love how the turtleneck let this performance be all about the music. Perhaps you can rock the look again and deliver an epic monologue to remind everyone your comedy and acting skills are top notch.
3. Do a Hannah Montana Skit
Come on, Miley! Please feed our hunger for nostalgia. (Unless, of course, you and the Disney Channel have a confidential agreement to leave Hannah in the past.)
We’ve already made an important casting decision for you. If Sudeikis isn’t up for playing your dad, we know Taran Killam can pull off the Billy Ray charm.
4. Invite Nicki Minaj
If there’s one thing we learned from the VMAs, it’s that everybody loves a musical reconciliation! Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj moved past their short-lived Twitter feud with a headline-grabbing performance, and there’s no better way for you and Minaj to put aside your awkward stage moment than to perform on the SNL stage together.
One last note: no matter what happens, break a leg!
