Lin-Manuel Miranda Gives Aidy Bryant Freestyling Tips in New 'SNL' Promos
Bryant tries her hand at some rhymes and works her name into 'Hamilton's' opening song.
Alexander Hamilton is coming to Saturday Night Live.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, no stranger to live performance as the creator and star of the Tony-winning Broadway musical Hamilton, teased his first bow as SNL host with Cecily Strong, following that up in a series of promos alongside musical guests Twenty One Pilots and castmember Aidy Bryant.
Bryant burst into a spirited rhyme session in one promo, expressing her love for Miranda's musical. The freestyling was tough on her, and Miranda advised that she "take the rest of the promo off."
All was forgiven, however, in the next spot, in which Miranda and Bryant tag-teamed a quip on the musical guests' band name then high-fived their witticism, eliciting a groan from the musicians.
Lastly, Bryant couldn't resist another chance to showcase her vocal chops, working her own name into the eponymous opening song from Hamilton.
Saturday Night Live airs Saturday at 11:30 p.m. on NBC.
