Episode 2 — Kim Kardashian and Halsey

Sometimes Lorne Michaels and Saturday Night Live pick a celebrity so famous that they don't need to have a project to promote to justify hosting—and that seemed to be the case with Kim Kardashian, who presented on October 9, 2021. The reality star, entrepreneur, and activist lent her voice to the 2021 film PAW Patrol: The Movie but it's unlikely she was there to push that project.

Former host Halsey supported Kardashian as the musical guest. It was Halsey's fourth time appearing on the show, and she's turned out to be a musical guest who has no problem contributing to a sketch too.

Episode 1 — Owen Wilson and Kacey Musgraves

It's hard to believe Owen Wilson hasn't previously hosted Saturday Night Live, considering he's been a major comedy star for more than 20 years now. He hosted the Season 47 premiere coming off the back of a successful start to 2021, with his performance as Mobius M. Mobius on the Marvel Disney+ series Loki. He also starred in Wes Anderson's movie, The French Dispatch, which came out in theaters on October 22, 2021.

Grammy-winning country star Kacey Musgraves appeared as the first musical guest of the season on SNL. Making her second appearance on the show, she recently released her fifth studio album, Star-Crossed, which is out now.
