On SNL, Beyoncé tries another round of wings

1 Min Read

Maya Rudolph brought Beyoncé back to “Saturday Night Live” and repeated her impression of giving Queen B another chance on the spicy chicken wing talk show “Hot Ones.”

Opposite Mikey Day’s version of host Sean Evans, Beyoncé returns for the challenging YouTube interview segment, cocky about the wings until they become uncomfortably warm. As things become more unbearable, she has increasingly difficult instructions for her assistant, played by Kenan Thompson.

Rudolph last played Beyoncé in “Hot Ones” on an episode of “SNL” in March 2021. Prior to this year’s “Hot Ones” skit, Rudolph’s monologue consisted of a Beyoncé-inspired song called “Mother.”

Rudolph has talked in the past about how much Beyoncé’s artistry has empowered her, including a 2019 interview with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” about how much she loved the singer’s Coachella sets.

“I saw Beychella…I saw it both weekends,” she said. “It was the craziest thing… it changed my life. We all witnessed something that had never been done before, that was made with love, that was made with beauty, that was made with pride. It was a nod to historically black colleges and universities.”

Check out the sketch below.
