Mick Jagger Teaches Kristen Wiig How to Rock in ‘Saturday Night Live’ Promos
Mick Jagger will be hosting the season finale of ‘Saturday Night Live‘ this weekend. And if that wasn’t enough for rock-and-roll fans, the musical guests will be Foo Fighters, Arcade Fire and Jeff Beck.
This will be Mick’s third time on the show, and first as host. The music legend (who will be 69 this summer) shot the traditional midweek promos with Kristen Wiig. Check out how he did.
It’s fitting that Wiig would be the one to do the promo, as it is expected she will not return to ‘SNL’ next season after seven years on the show.
Speaking of milestones, 2012 marks the 50th(!) anniversary of the Rolling Stones as a band.
As for the promo, Jagger does a pretty solid job. But that shouldn’t be so surprising — Jagger’s impression of longtime bandmate and songwriting partner Keith Richard’s during a ‘SNL’ episode in 1993 is one of the more famous impersonations in the show’s long history. Watch Jagger render his old pal of over 50 years Richards even more incromphensible than usual in the clip below.
