Hot off the release of “The Batman,” Zoë Kravitz hosted Saturday Night Live with musical guest Rosalia.

Kravitz is an SNL legacy—her dad Lenny Kravitz was a two-time musical guest, on-again-off-again stepdad Jason Momoa did in 2018 and has shown up in quite a few cameos since then, and Zoë’s boyfriend Channing Tatum made an appearance in his Magic Mike era in 2012.

Here is a glimpse into some of the hilarious and well-done bits from this episode of Saturday Night Live.

Zoë’s Monologue

Zoë Kravitz was on stage a few seconds when Kate McKinnon appeared dressed like Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman from Tim Burton’s Batman Returns. After some back and forth, Ego Nwodim turned up as Eartha Kitt’s Catwoman from the 1960s TV series and bantered a bit before Aidy Bryant showed up as a bit of a stranger kind of cat lady. We learned that Chris Redd does a stellar Katt Williams impression, but we did not learn much about Kravitz. Kravitz may have got in the fewest words in a monologue than any host in the history of the show.


In this hilarious ad for a new Amazon feature, where you scan into the store and then “grab and go” anything you want in the grocery store, the trepidation of Black shoppers to simply walk out without paying first was super well-done and amusing. Great work here by all the participating Black cast members, whose nervous incredulity really sold this.

Josh and Cassie

Kate McKinnon played a nerdy young person named Josh, who was overwhelmed by Kravitz’s character Cassie and her romantic intimations that Josh (McKinnon) called their friend Jason, played by Aidy Bryant, for real-time advice about how to make this work. With McKinnon playing a kind of Jeff Goldblum cadence and Bryant playing a know-it-all nerd, this was a hilarious bit of physical comedy.

Rosalía SNL AD

Rosalía lit up the SNL stage performing two songs fully in Spanish.

Spanish artist Rosalía owned the stage in her performance of “Chicken Teriyaki”, with two backup dancers accentuating her own charismatic presence

Returning for “La Fama” and outfitted in a high fashion comforter coat, she sang more of a flamenco ballad, backed by busy music. It was rather gorgeous because of her impassioned and emotive performance, which occasionally recalled the late great Lhasa.

Zoë Kravitz and Rosalía absolutely lit up the stage on their SNL debut!
