Do Lady Gaga and Mick Jagger surprise on ‘SNL’ to back Bad Bunny?

On a recent episode of “Saturday Night Live,” reggaeton superstar Bad Bunny was not only the host and musical guest but also received support from a star-studded lineup, including Lady Gaga, Mick Jagger, and Pedro Pascal. The unexpected presence of these A-listers added a special touch to Bad Bunny’s performances.

Lady Gaga, in her best Spanish accent, introduced Bad Bunny’s performance by calling upon “Puerto Rico y todo el corillo” to join in the excitement. The audience eagerly awaited the live performance of “Monaco” from Bad Bunny’s newly-released album, “Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana.” The electrifying atmosphere was further enhanced by the presence of Mick Jagger, who made a surprise appearance and delighted fans with his performance.

For his first performance of the night, Bad Bunny took the stage surrounded by moody red lighting. Accompanied by the mechanical toy horse from the music video of his single, “Un Preview,” he delivered a high-energy rendition of the song. Later, he recreated scenes from the Al Pacino-starring video for “Monaco,” captivating the audience with his dynamic presence and musical talent.

In addition to his remarkable performances, Bad Bunny was joined by Mick Jagger for a couple of skits. This marked Jagger’s first appearance on “SNL” since 1986. The surprise guest added a touch of nostalgia and excitement to the show. In one sketch, Jagger played the role of a mediating father between Bad Bunny and “SNL” cast member Marcello Hernández, who were engrossed in a heated argument on the set of a Spanish-language soap opera. The sketch ended dramatically with Jagger slapping both actors. Jagger also participated in a parody of “Sister Act 3,” portraying not-so-holy nuns alongside Bad Bunny.

Although this was Bad Bunny’s first time hosting “SNL,” he had previously made appearances on the show. In April 2020, he made a cameo during one of the pandemic’s “Saturday Night Live at Home” episodes. He later returned as a musical guest in 2021 when “Bridgerton’s” Regé-Jean Page hosted the show. His increasing presence on “SNL” reflects his rising popularity and influence in the music industry.

The 49th season of “Saturday Night Live” premiered recently, with Pete Davidson as the host and Ice Spice as the musical guest. The episode featured several internet-breaking moments, including a surprise cameo by Taylor Swift and her rumored beau, Travis Kelce. Bad Bunny’s appearance on the show added to the excitement, leaving fans eager for more.

Bad Bunny’s appearance on “SNL” coincided with the announcement of his “Most Wanted Tour,” which will begin on February 21 in Utah’s Delta Center. The tour will include stops in major cities across North America, such as Las Vegas, Phoenix, San Fransisco, and Los Angeles, before concluding on May 26 in Miami. Fans can expect an unforgettable live experience from the Puerto Rican superstar.

In addition to his appearance on “SNL,” Bad Bunny made a guest appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” During the interview, he shared his excitement and expressed gratitude for the opportunity to host “SNL.” He jokingly mentioned the exhaustion from the week-long process of preparing for the show, but emphasized his enjoyment of working with the cast and producers. Bad Bunny’s infectious energy and gratitude endeared him to fans and viewers alike.
