The Hot Ones series on YouTube brings in plenty of celebrity guests, but there’s always been one A-lister who seems out of reach: Beyoncé. We’re one step closer to knowing what an interview (powered by hot chicken wings) would be like with Queen Bey thanks to a recent Saturday Night Live skit.
Decked out in a near-perfect replica of Beyoncé’s leather Grammys outfit, SNL host Maya Rudolph brought back her iconic impression for March 27’s show. She approaches the Hot Ones challenge with gusto — a little too much, it turns out. No amount of water, or even the dreaded room temperature milk, could put the heat at bay. This skit is a great reminder of why we’ll probably never see the real life Beyoncé face “hot questions and even hotter wings,” but at least we’ll always have Rudolph. Watch the full sketch above.
