If you watched Only murders in the building so you knew when you walked in you expected to have a good time Saturday Night Live with hosting by Selena Gomez. And if you doesn’t watch Hulu’s hilarious whodunit, first, find a way to fix this, and second, this opening monologue gets things off to a good start.
Gomez comes out swinging with a few wisecracks pointed directly at her Only murders co-stars, Steve Martin and Martin Short – an immediate demonstration of how she more than fits in alongside the two comedy legends. She then delivers a quick impression of Miley Cyrus before admitting she’s single and appearing on SNL because she’s all about “showing love,” prompting several cast members — some of whom are married, she reminds them — to pull their shots.
But the best moment of the monologue comes at the end. Gomez, for those who may not know, started acting on the children’s TV show Barney and his friends. She mentions it at the start of the monologue, but she comes back to it as the monologue ends, inviting the audience to join her in an iconic Barney song “I love you” that certainly won’t get stuck in your head again at the end of the day. when you hear it.
