Staff Q&A: Which singer would you like to see host 'Saturday Night Live'?

Katy Perry hosts “SNL” this week, so we asked our staff which singer, besides Justin Timberlake, they would like to see host next.

•••• Does Lindsay Lohan count as a singer? Editor's note: Nope. Luke Broadwater, reporter, The Baltimore Sun

•••• If Nicki Minaj appeared in three sketches, that would be a guaranteed three memorable bits. Which is three more than in many “SNL” broadcasts. Plus, I’d like a reprise of “The Creep.”

•••• Although I’m not a huge fan, Childish Gambino, aka Donald Glover, would make perfect sense. P.S.: If NBC is reading, please save “Community.”


Wesley Case, reporter, b

•••• I’m torn between Drake and Adele on this one. Could they do it as a duo? And then fall in love? I would like that.

Jordan Bartel, assistant editor, b

•••• LMFAO. Their name says it all. 
Jan Diehm, designer, b

•••• Rihanna. You never really get to see much of her personality when she performs. It would be nice to see her out of her comfort zone.

•••• I’d love to see Z104.3 artist Rihanna host! She was so funny in the “Shy Ronnie” SNL Digital Shorts that I think she could own a whole show!

Mick Lee, Z104.3

•••• I’m just another Little Monster who’d love to see Lady Gaga given the chance. There is way too much material there!
