The world’s most powerful wizard made his debut on “Saturday Night Live” last night. Daniel Radcliffe used an impressive American accent, made fun of internet sensations, and of course, mocked his Harry Potter fame.
In his opening monologue, Radcliffe said that he was weary of spoofing Harry Potter because it has been done so many times already by SNL.
“I, myself have already been played by Bill Hader, Hugh Jackman, and of course, Rachel Dratch. So I asked Lorne if it we could avoid sketches like “Harry Pot Head,” or see Dumbledore working at “Harry Potterybarn. But I don’t think he listened to a word I said.”
Here’s a look at Harry Potter will look like in 2020.
Radcliffe’s hosting gig on SNL was widely praised. The musical guest, however, drew her fair share of criticism from the Twitterverse. Lana Del Rey’s lackluster performance drew more than a few comments on Twitter last night.
Juliette Lewis wrote:
“Wow watching this ‘singer’ on SNL is like watching a 12 year old in their bedroom when they’re pretending to sing and perform. #signofourtimes.”
Perez Hilton added:
“Just watched SNL. Not only was @LanaDelRey vocally WAY off, but watching her utter lack of stage presence was cringe-worthy.”
Here’s the video of Lana Del Rey’s performance.
Did you watch Daniel Radcliffe on SNL last night? Did the Harry Potter star do a good job hosting?
