Molly Shannon hosted “Saturday Night Live” on April 8 and repeated her famous character, 50-year-old woman Sally O’Malley.
In a sketch with the Jonas Brothers, the episode’s musical guest, Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas all appeared on stage to introduce Sally O’Malley as the band’s new choreographer. The character made a comeback.
Kenan Thompson played the Jonas Siblings’ manager and told Bowen Yang and Chloe Fineman, who played choreographers Gretel and Turbo, that the band is searching for a new, more “mature” idea.
“My name is Sally O’Malley. I’m proud to say I’m 50 years old. I’m not one of those girls who’s afraid to tell her real age,” Shannon said, before going into her iconic “and I like to kick, stretch and kick” routine.
Shannon continued the routine by reciting the character’s catchphrase while donning her classic red-and-white two-piece costume. “I’m 50! 50 years old.”
After that, Thompson, Yang, and Fineman were clearly seen out of character laughing as Shannon raised the waistline of her red pants, just like Sally O’Malley did when she appeared on “Saturday Night Live” previously.
Shannon replied, “Honey, I’ve been 50 since before you was born,” when Yang’s Turbo inquired about her age.
The beloved character made its debut in a 1999 sketch in which then-host Danny DeVito and Sally O’Malley attend an open Rockettes audition.
Sally O’Malley was 50 years of age then, as well.
Nick Jonas said that he, Joe Jonas, and Kevin Jonas had a feeling Turbo and Gretel might not understand their new idea when they walked on stage.
Joe Jonas said, “So we wanted to show them,” as the three brothers ripped off their clothes to show Sally O’Malley’s matching outfits.
Nick Jonas is kicked out of the band and replaced by Sally O’Malley when the four of them perform a kick-and-stretch dance routine.
The headline text reads, “new Jonas Brother is 50-year-old woman!” on a picture of the front page of a newspaper.
Shannon was an “SNL” cast member from 1995 to 2001 and is known for her common characters like Sally O’Malley and Mary Katherine Gallagher.
The “White Lotus” star was back as host of the well-known sketch show on Saturday, and the Jonas Brothers were back as musical guests for the third time.
