Initially, “Saturday Night Live” planned on having pop superstar Ariana Grande perform for Saturday’s season premiere.
Kanye West will perform on Saturday’s season premiere of Saturday Night Live, but it was Ariana Grande who was originally scheduled to be the musical guest. SNL producer Lorne Michaels revealed the casting shuffle on the “Origins With James Andrew Miller” podcast in an episode about his show. “We had Ariana drop out for emotional reasons two days ago,” Michaels said in a prerecorded episode released Thursday.
