‘Saturday Night Live’: Bad Bunny Turns Romantic While Regé-Jean Page Brings ‘Bridgerton’ Charm

Saturday Night Live Bad Bunny and Rosalía

Bad Bunny and Rosalía made their appearances on Saturday Night Live, lighting up the late-night live television sketch comedy and variety show with the romantic performance of “La Noche De Anoche.”

Joined by Rosalía, Bad Bunny hit the SNL stage over the weekend, bringing in the heat with a steamy performance of their hit collaboration “La Noche De Anoche.” The stage featured white steps with archways, resembling the surreal art design that was on display in their recent music video and served as a backdrop to their duet.

Sporting all-white attires, the pair made sure nothing would distract the audience at home and those watching in Studio 8H the strength of their vocal duel. Returning for a second set later in the night, the artist delivered a beautiful performance of “Te Deseo lo Mejor.”

Bad Bunny sang the song entirely alone while sitting alone on the surrealist geometric steps, captivating the audience without any theatrics. Aside from that, the popular singer made appearances in two separate sketches, including one where he featured on SNL‘s pre-taped music video sketch, “Loco,” ET reported.

Bad Bunny also had a small part in “Sea Shanty,” a sketch about old sailing ships, accompanied by first-time host Regé-Jean Page. The artist portrayed the role of the ship’s navigator, who has no idea what he is doing or talking about.

Despite having only a few lines, he managed to get the most laughs out of his screen time as compared to any other cast member. Bad Bunny is currently nominated for two GRAMMYs. His latest album, El Ultimo Tour del Mundo grabbed the number one spot on the Billboard 200.

Regé-Jean Page also made his Saturday Night Live debut for his first-ever monologue. “Most of you probably recognize me from Bridgerton on Netflix, the show that made everyone turn to their moms and say, ‘Oh you know what?” Page said introducing himself to the people who might not know him.

“Never mind, I don’t think we should watch this together,” he added. “It’s a bit of a racy show. Because of that, people may associate me with being this smoldering, sensual, smoke show of a man,” Page said.

“But I assure you, I’m just a regular guy. I’m here to show you a good time,” he assured. His monologue was interrupted by cast members Ego Nwodim and Aidy Bryant, who introduced themselves as the “SNL Host Liaison” – a position they told Page is real and not an excuse to get close to him.

“I don’t know. Episode 5, 52 minutes in,” Nwodim said when Page asked which parts of the show they liked the most. Nwodim was actually referring to one of the show’s explicit sex scenes. “Episode 6, 5 minutes in,” Bryant said.

“12 minutes in,” Nwodim noted.

“43 minutes in,” Bryant added.

“And in and in and in!” Nwodim said.

 Chloe Fineman then came out dressed as Page’s on-screen Bridgerton love interest, Daphne but denied this. Page went on to declare that he is more than just a handsome face with a deep voice, adding that he has real range.

“No, no. It’s cool. We definitely have other sketch ideas where you aren’t just being an extremely hot sex man,” Bryant assured, “We do?!” Nwodim and Fineman asked.

“No! We’re screwed,” Bryant said. “Get a pencil, bitch, because we’re rewriting everything!”

With Page playing himself, Chloe Fineman played his co-star, Phoebe Dynevor. As is common in many productions, the stars initially go over the scene with an “intimacy coordinator.” Since the woman they usually work with called out sick, their backup “intimacy coordinators” are two gruff, vulgar crew members played by Mikey Day and Pete Davidson, who barely do anything to ease any awkward tension.
