Did anyone else watch Saturday Night Live with Elton Johh?
I love Elton John but was very disappointed. He needs to hire a writer that promote his brand.
Tabloids are great for the personal life but as a tv viewer, lover of rock n roll, I don't really care about your personal life, I wanted his opening to be about his career and the many songs I love, his heritage of being British, connection to Diana, the upcoming wedding he is invited to - not his personal life.
Talented writers - what quick wit would you have suggested to Elton John for opening remarks?
I was actually pleasantly surprised by Elton's opening monologue (not to mention the opening skit parody of Lawrence Welk!).
Compared to 90% of the SNL hosts, Elton John was at least engaging.
For a New York audience, I don't think mention of the royal couple's nuptials or Princess Diana would have had the same impact as it would in Britain. Some Americans care about William and Kate, but I think that particular audience preferred the gay fathers jokes.
He did manage to get in mentions of a couple of his songs.
The disappointment for me, honestly, was his supposed "duets" with Leon Russell. I adore Leon Russell's voice but he was not even audible. And yesterday was his birthday, too (69 -- you go, Leon!).
i jst watched it, elton was funnier then I thought he'd be. It was a little to "look at me i'm gay" for me, hes openly gay we dont need all gay driven sketches to prove it. The cowboy one was the best on the night!
I'd like to tell my favourite elton john joke now, but I think my profile would be taken down in about ten minutes flat!

What Is Your Favorite Saturday Night Live Skit?One of mine is where Will Ferrell is on a show called Wake Up and Smile - and the teleprompter breaks and it turns into sort of a Lord of the Flies thing, because they don't know how to behave or act without the teleprompter. I also used to love...
