Miley Cyrus Sings To The Newsmakers Of 2015 In Saturday Night Live Opening Skit [VIDEO]

People Magazine recaps last night’s opening skit:

Miley Cyrus kicked off the season premiere of Saturday Night Live by looking back at the biggest names of summer of 2015 – including everyone from Arianna Grande to Kim Davis. Wearing a floral plastic minidress and matching bathing cap, the “Wrecking Ball” singer took aim at herself before beginning her act. “I love hosting this show because it’s live, so my parents know where I’m at for at least 90 minutes,” Cyrus joked. She added, “Tonight I am on a seven second delay – not a television delay, it’s just when you smoke as much as I do you’re always on a 7 second delay.” But Cyrus spent the majority of her opening monologue with a musical number, which she dedicated to the most memorable moments of 2015.

    That outfit looked like she was going swimming in a movie in the 1930’s

    • Joe in PA

      or a flower child from the 60s.

  • TKW

    That outfit…didn’t Phyllis Diller wear that on the Hollywood Palace one night? Very retro shower curtain.

    • DaddyRay

      I think you are right

    • Duh-David

      Is Millie currently in the touring company of Priscilla Queen of the Desert?

      • Ginger Snap

        I thought of Priscilla too.

    • Dewey, Cheatham & Howe

      Phyllis Diller. My God. Your hair must be as gray as mine.

      • Anastasia Beaverhousen

        Saw her onstage in the 70’s as a teenager. (Really I was only 4). She was amazing.

      • Dale Snyder

        That AND Hollywood Palace!

      • TKW

        My hair turned grey at 30. I just like to think I was a very precocious little boy. I mean, I did read Mein Kampf when I was nine. Phyllis Diller..Hitler…was all the same to me. 🙂

        • Reality.Bites

          30? You were ten years behind my father.

        • Ginger Snap

          My hair is still red no gray yet . mis Clairol #42 helps.

    • crewman

      I actually like Miley Cyrus a lot, but …

  • Michael Rush

    She should have dressed like the donut that Ariana Grande licked .

  • DaddyRay

    I didn’t see it as the most memorable moments as the most memorable 15 minutes of fame has-beens.

  • Bj Lincoln

    I could have done without her singing. Otherwise I thought it was funny. She sure has a lot of teeth and a big mouth.

    • Steven Leahy

      I like her voice. She did a terrific version of “Jolene”.

        Scrape away all the hype and over the top costumes, she is very talented.

      • StraightGrandmother

        I hadn’t realized she was so talented. Thanks for posting this.

  • geoffalnutt

    It’s the modern, Esther Williams-look that has become SO popular these days. Why, even as we speak, I’m wearing a dazzling metallic silver one-piece…and a spray of gladiolas on my very tasteful rubberine cloche. Last one in is a weenie!!!

    • Robincho

      Sophie Tucker on Esther Williams: “Wet, she’s a star. Dry, she ain’t.”

    • unsavedheathen

      Pics, please!

      Please.

    • rusty57

      Polaroids or it never happened.

  • Gay Fordham Prep Grad

    I thought the late in the show, “The Millennials” was an out of the park home run. They nailed it.

    • Secure

      Loved it too.

  • Larry in Oklahoma

    I liked what they did and I think she handled the song really well.

  • Steven Leahy

    Note Kim Davis needed no caption, like most of the others LOL

    • fuow

      I think it was because they don’t film in Cineramascope™. It was hard enough to get her fat ass and saggy boobs in there.

      • StraightGrandmother

        And jiggly stomach, did you catch her stomach jiggling?
        I hopeKim remembers this that she is a laughingstock, that she was mocked on SNL.
        After all she has got those 20,000 letters praising her, now she sees that not everybody agrees.

        Monday it will be two weeks since the ACLU filed their petition asking Judge Buuing to punish her and maybe the Judge should order the Rowan County Clerks office put into Federal Receivership.
        This coming week there should be more Kim Davis Court action.

        • David L. Caster

          This is a sure sign that Davis is in about her 13th minute of fame.

  • MikeBx2

    I’ve never had much of an opinion of Miley Cyrus. I was impressed with her voice in the opening and thought her first musical number was good, but not so much with her second.

    Jarod Fogle/Josh Duggar was hilarious.

    • fuow

      She’s the real deal, just a bit too much like her dad.

  • bkmn

    I should bookmark this and come back in a year and see how many of the “characters” I remember.

    • fuow

      Remember? I’m still trying to forget them all.

  • unsavedheathen

    Whoever is in charge of wardrobe on SNL deserves a big shout-out! Pulling that Kim Davis outfit together must have taken several trips to several BigLots! Plus whatever had to be scrounged from the charity bins at the local apostolic church.

    Nailed it!

    • Anastasia Beaverhousen

      Several trips to Big, Big, Really Yuuuge Lots. Fixed it.

    • StraightGrandmother

      Where do you go to get an ugly wig thaaaaat long and ratty?

      • Reality.Bites

        New York is the theatre capital of the US and a major film and TV production centre – there’s nothing in the way of wardrobe, props or makeup you can’t get there – and of course the SNL crew is more experienced than most.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    The Jared Fogel to Josh Dugger was brilliant. Now I have the giggles big time.

    • StraightGrandmother

      I had to go look up again who Jared Fogel is, I am so bad with names.
      Yeah that part was funny, laughing out loud funny.
      I love this mocking, it makes me feel so good.

  • DaddyRay

    A lot of halloween costume ideas in that clip

  • TexPlant

    Loved It!!

  • bob

    Something tells me we’re gonna see more of the girl who played davis. She nailed it! lol

  • SoCalVet

    I love how they lumped together those birds of a feather.

  • Secure

    Aidy Bryant nailed the Kim Davis look. The whole opening was great I thought.

  • Hillary must be paying them off – they tore Bernie a new one one the show.

  • StraightGrandmother

    That was funny. I loved Kim Davis the most.
    They totally nailed her.
    All the stories we followed her on JMG, every one made the hit list.
    So happy they got Josh Duggar in there also, really drive a nail in the hearts of that awful Duggar Family, that they are being mocked.

    Wasn’t it so funny that the Kim Davis character held her arms up like that?

    • Schlukitz

      It was a wonderful spoof of all the crazies that graced the pages of our 2015 calendar.

      The Kim Davis take-off was, by far, the best.
