In the second clip, Redd is again hyped about the season finale, boasting that the show “saved the best for last,” which inspires the proper English actress to correct him, politely. “Well, we want to be humble, the other shows were great too,” she says. “No, this is the best one,” Lil Nas responds, as the host quickly agrees. Neither is up for a celebratory hug from Redd, though.
To be fair, it has been a pretty epic 46th season, with musical guests Megan Thee Stallion, Jack White, Justin Bieber, H.E.R., The Strokes, Foo Fighters, Morgan Wallen, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Dua Lipa, Machine Gun Kelly, Phoebe Bridgers, Nathaniel Rateliff, Bad Bunny, Nick Jonas, Jack Harlow, St. Vincent, Kid Cudi, Miley Cyrus and Olivia Rodrigo.
In celebration of his SNL appearance, Lil Nas dropped the new, chilled-out acoustic single “Sun Goes Down.”
