'Saturday Night Live' Season 44: Watch Awkwafina Host 'SNL' for the First Time

Saturday Night Live's second episode of Season 44 will be one for the history books. Nora Lum, known as YouTube viral sensation turned Hollywood darling Awkwafina, is set to host SNL for the first time on Saturday.

Not only does Awkwafina's appearance on SNL mark the first time an Asian woman is taking the hosting reigns on the sketch comedy show in nearly 20 years—actor Lucy Liu was the last Asian woman to host SNL in 2000—but she's also only the fourth person of Asian descent to host the show since it first debuted in 1975. In addition to Liu, Jackie Chan hosted the show (also in 2000), along with Aziz Ansari and Kumail Nanjani.

Awkwafina first gained attention with her popular YouTube channel, which features hilarious and creative music video and parodies, many of which have amassed millions of views, like "My Vag" and "Green Tea," featuring comedian Margaret Cho.

The rapper and actor was thrust onto the big screen when she appeared in the latest installment of the Oceans movie franchise, Oceans 8, alongside the likes of Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Cate Blanchett, Rihanna, Mindy Kaling and Anne Hathaway. However, it was the New York native's starring role in the blockbuster summer hit Crazy Rich Asians that skyrocketed Awkwafina to superstardom.
