Halsey Monologue | Season 44 Episode 12



[Starts with SNL monologue intro]

Narrator: Ladies and gentlemen, Halsey.

[The band is playing music] [Halsey gets in the door and walks to the stage] [The music stops] [Cheers and applause]

Halsey: Thank you very much, guys. Thank you. It is so wild to be hosting SNL for the first time. Love you, too. [Laughter] My name is Halsey which fun fact is actually short for Halsey and Oatesy. So if you’re like, “Oh, Halsey, where do I know her from?” Basically, whenever you scream at your angsty daughter to turn down that music. I am that music. I grew up not too far from New York in New Jersey. [Cheers and applause] I was looking for a bigger response for New Jersey there. [Cheers and applause] If I don’t seem like I’m from New Jersey, I want you to know my real name is Ashley Nicolette. I bet everybody watching back home is on the couch like, “Ashley is on the TV. You remember Ashley.” “The singer? Nice girl, not for my son, but good for her.” [Laughter] And I primarily am a singer. But tonight I’m also the host. [Cheers and applause] Which is absolutely mind blowing because when I was a kid I was obsessed with SNL. I watched it every week and I always specially admired the women on this show. They never cared what they looked like, what they sounded like or what anybody thought of them. They were just funny. [Cheers and applause] And now, here I am, Ashley Nicolette, the singer hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’! [Cheers and applause]  We have a great show tonight. I can’t stop smiling. I’m here. Stick around. We’ll be right back.
