Last night’s Saturday Night Live episode was hosted by Spider-Man actor Willem Dafoe in his hosting debut, alongside singer and LGBTQ community advocate Katy Perry in her fifth appearance on the show.

Perry first performed her most recent single “When I’m Gone” with the song’s featured artist, Alesso, in addition to several background dancers — who were donning mushroom costumes that gave them a rather phallic appearance.

The news you care about, reported on by the people who care about you:

Whether intentional or not, Perry’s first half of her performance on SNL got viewers’ attention — for one reason or another.

Perry eventually sat on (the knee of) one of the performing mushrooms. The dancers also flashed hand fans that read “EAT ME” throughout their performance, which Rolling Stone deemed asAlice in Wonderland-esque.”

For her second performance, Perry sung her 2019 song “Never Really Over” on a mushroom-adorned set, but not with the mushroom dancers aside her.

Regardless, her performances excited fans and created plenty of buzz.

Another portion of the show that made buzz was former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning surprise-appearing on the show’s “Weekend Update” segment alongside Colin Jost.

Jost planned to ask Manning about the NFL playoffs last weekend and the rumored retirement of seven-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady, but Manning instead was determined to talk about — and break down — the Netflix series Emily In Paris.

Manning said, “I had an hour to kill before the first game, so just for fun, I put on the first episode of Emily in Paris Season 2, and I watched the entire season straight through… Oh my god, Colin. This show has everything: romance, adventure, sensuality, culture, a fresh take on feminism, finally, not to mention a culinary tapestry so rich, I could only describe it as ‘food porn.’”

Aidy Bryant and out cast member Bowen Yang also appeared on “Weekend Update” alongside Michael Che, portraying “trend forecasters.”

They deemed things such as “male cleavage” and “doing the damn dishes” as trends that are “in,” while “movie posters as décor” and “Michael Che” were out.
