Dua Lipa ‘Saturday Night Live’ Promos Promise ‘Double the Dua! Double the Lipa!’

When Dua Lipa pulls double-duty as host and musical guest on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, Mikey Day warns it’s going to be “double trouble.”

In new promos for Saturday’s episode, Day can’t contain his enthusiasm for the pop star’s twofer. “Double the Dua! Double the Lipa! Woo!”

“Are you OK?” Lipa asks the SNL castmember. “No,” Day admits. “I had two double shots of espresso before this to stay on theme. Double the Dua! Double the Lipa! Woo! It’s going to be a great week!”

In another promo released Thursday (May 2), Day volunteers to help Lipa out with the music portion of her gig thanks to his “freestyle rap” prowess from his days on the Nick Cannon-hosted MTV comedy show Wild ‘n Out. “I think I’m going to be just fine,” Lipa says.

“Oh, you’re not going to ask me to spit something?” Day asks. “OK, wow. Dua Lipa is really not going to ask me to spit something.”

Saturday will mark Dua Lipa’s third time on the show as the musical guest and her first time hosting. On Friday, she’ll release her third studio album, Radical Optimism, which has been preceded by the singles “Houdini,” “Training Season” and “Illusion.”
