It’s about damn time! It’s official: Lizzo will be taking part in SNL’s final episode of 2022! The singer is stepping in for the previous musical guests – Yeah Yeah Yeahs- after the group had to cancel their appearance due to a medical issue.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs posted this message to their Instagram detailing the cancellation:
According to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the band is stepping down to support member, Nick, as he battles pneumonia. Yeah Yeah Yeahs is “heartbroken” that they can’t “rise to these occasions” but are looking forward to “a strong return in 2023.”
