Jay-Z Joins Betty White for Saturday Night Live

Jay-Z will be the musical guest for the special Mother’s Day episode of Saturday Night Live on May 8, according to multiple sources.

Former Golden Girls actress Betty White will be co-hosting the night with six former female SNL cast members: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Maya Rudolph, Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch.

Betty was recently asked if she knew if Jay-Z was going to be the musical guest. She told Zap2It, “I really didn’t, in all honesty. I was just so thrilled when I heard that Tina and the girls were going to do it, I have tried not to have anything to say [on the creative end]. It’s their show.”

Betty continued, “All I have is veto power. If anything comes up that I don’t feel comfortable doing, I can say, ‘Can we go in another direction?’ They know what they’re doing far better than I do, so I didn’t even get into the musical end of it.”
