‘SNL’ Preview: Anna Kendrick and Taran Killam Sing Showtunes, Are Predictably Adorable

Subscribe to KATS: THE Rock Station on

After this past weekend’s latest ‘SNL‘ installment with return host Louis C.K. gave a noticeable bump in quality (which you can see with our new ‘SNL’ Scorecard!), ‘Pitch Perfect’ star Anna Kendrick will kick off the first installments of April 2014 with musical guest Pharrell. Does Anna prove as adorable and internet-favorite as ever in the first promos? Find out for yourself!

First-time host Anna Kendrick performs admirably in her first ‘SNL’ promos for the April 5 installment, which Seth Rogen will follow with musical guest Ed Sheeran the following week. Kendrick becomes adorably flustered trying to figure out the meaning behind the ‘Saturday Night Live’ title, later putting her musical theatre skills to good work alongside a similarly-showboating Taran Killam. There’s even a (belated) April Fools gag, with past hosts in tow!

Hard to say exactly if the writing will find the right material for Kendrick, but we’ll certainly keep an open mind. The early March ‘SNL’ installments also understandably suffered a bit with the loss of new ‘Late Night‘ host Seth Meyers, even with head writer Colin Jost taking the Weekend Update alongside Cecily Strong.

Well, what are you waiting for? See for yourself with Anna Kendrick’s first ‘SNL’ promos above, and tell us in the comments what you want to see from the ‘Pitch Perfect’ star’s first outing!
