World News – USA – Saturday Night Live: Jason Bateman gets confused about who Morgan Wallen is


. .

As it turns out, Jason Bateman may not quite know who is helping him live on Saturday night this weekend. In a promo video shared by the show’s official social media account on Saturday, Bateman playfully teases the aspiring country music star, jokingly mistaking him for SNL mainstay Heidi Gardner. Bateman is hosting the episode tonight, his second such appearance in the show’s history. The star of Arrested Development had already hosted an episode in early 2005, now over 15 years ago.

Wallen has seen its popularity last year, largely thanks to its release of « 7 Summers, » its very first Billboard Hot 100 top 10 chart. The track peaked as number six. The timing is working well for the artist as he will be releasing a second album in a few weeks – Dangerous: The Double Album will be released on Aug.. January.

The artist was originally supposed to appear on an episode earlier this season, except the show’s producers decided to remove him from his seat as a musical guest after videos surfaced showing him at crowded college parties, which was a represents a clear violation of Saturday Night’s current COVID guidelines from Live.

« I’m in New York City, in a hotel room, I was preparing for SNL this Saturday, and I got a call from the show letting me know I can’t play anymore, and that’s because of COVID logs I understand, « Wallen said in a long Instagram post in October.

He continued, « I’m not positive for COVID, but my actions over the past weekend have been quite short-sighted and have obviously influenced my long-term goals and dreams. I respect the show’s decision because I know I put it in danger and I take responsibility for it. I want to apologize to the SNL, my fans and my team for giving me these opportunities, and I am failing them. And what’s even more personal, I think I have to grow up a bit. I think I got lost a bit. I’ve been trying to find joy in the wrong places and I don’t know, I got less enjoyment, so I’ll try to work on it. « 

« I’m going to step back from the spotlight for a while and work on myself. I wish I could have done country music and my fans proud this Saturday, but once again I respect the decision. « 

New episodes of Saturday Night Live Air Saturday night on NBC starting at 11:30 p.m.. m. east.
