Keegan-Michael Key made his internet hosting debut on Saturday Evening Reside on Could 15, and whereas we already knew that Olivia Rodrigo could be the musical visitor, we had no thought the Muppets could be crashing the present. In a skit spoofing The Muppet Present, Kermit the Frog welcomes Melissa Villaseñor’s Lily Tomlin to the stage solely to be heckled by Statler and Waldorf, as per standard. Fortunately, Key and Kenan Thompson had been there to again him up as safety guards.
“All people paid good cash to listen to this little dragon and his mates do their factor. So please allow them to do their factor with out speaking,” Key tells them. However in fact, Statler and Waldorf did not go down with no combat (and we imply actually). At one level, Thompson even broke character and burst into laughter, which made the entire thing ten occasions funnier. Simply look ahead to your self within the video above.
