Miley Cyrus Hosts SNL

11:30pm Saturday October 5, 2013, set to watch new SNL, hosted by Miley Cyrus. Delayed until 11:57pm? Not impressed. Delays mess up commercials and timing of the show.

How was Miley Cyrus? Great. She’s a talented young woman. Good voice. Stunning comedic timing.miley19

In classic SNL style they jumped on the twerking controversy, riding it with laughs and the derision it deserves.

The first skit, set in post-apocalyptic New York, 2045 where two homeless people are discussing the day America ended…some say it was the U.S. government shutdown, others say Obamacare, but the day it really ended was the MTV MVAs. A pretend flashback to older Miley Cyrus telling younger Miley Cyrus not to do it. The best line was Miley’s reply to a stage guy about practicing, saying she thinks this performance will be less about the music. Understatement alert.

 Highlight of the show? A video spoofing the Republican Party shutting down the US government. Changing Cyrus’ song, “We Can’t Stop” to “We Did Stop (The Government)”. Seriously funny and at the same time, sad and serious, pointing out the damage misuse of power by a few people can really do.

“This is our house/ This is our rules/ And we did stop (the government)/ Yeah, we did stop (shut it down), Can’t you see it’s we/ Who are right?/ Can’t you see it’s we/ Who ’bout that life?”
“La dee dee da dee, Republican Party, Repping GOP, doing whatever we want. This is our House. This is our rules and we did stop”.

Also the musical act, Miley Cyrus belted out “Wrecking Ball” and then slow, acoustic version of “We Can’t Stop”.miley23

All funny, entertaining, clever, thought-provoking, Cyrus showed this hoopla over her performance at the MVAs was just that, a performance, a job. She faced it head on and showed more maturity than her critics combined. Don’t we have more important things to worry about?

Thanks to SNL for putting it all in perspective.

    This Saturday Night Live show sounds so cool. Miley must have a great personality to a show like this one. A video spoofing the Republican Party shutting down sounds like such a cool thing to watch. Miley you just added lots of thinking to us at home.
