Default Predict the SNL Hosts & Musical Guests Game - Season 45

Predict the SNL Hosts & Musical Guests Game - Season 45

SNL is expected to be on for it’s 45th year ()!



Use your prognostication / actuarial predictive skills in the Predict the SNL Hosts & Musical Guests Game - Season 45!

Here are the past winners


Season 36 - Co-Champions: Linus & OddSox; Runner up: The Arbitrary
Season 37 - Co-Champions: LoneGirl, JoJo, & tometom; Runners up: frummie, Linus and Patience
Season 38 - Champion: JoJo; Runner up: tometom
Season 39 - Champion: Lone Girl; Runner up: Patience
Season 40 - Champion: internetguy87; Runner up: The Arbitrary
Season 41 – Champion: JoJo; Runner up: LoneGirl
Season 42 – Champion: LoneGirl; Runner up: Linus
Season 43 – Champions: Linus and tometom; Runner up: frummie
Season 44 – Champion: JoJo; Runners up: Kalani Sitake and Oliver Kolozov

Let's see who can do the best job of predicting who will be host and/or musical guest on SNL this upcoming season. Potential hosts could be movie/television actors, comedians, musicians, policitians, etc. I'll let you do your own research on who has hosted or performed in recent seasons to help you formulate your guesses.

I haven't seen an official announcement for the season premiere but let's assume it's sometime in September. The rumor mill starts early, and usually the first few hosts are confirmed in August, so for sake of fairness, we'll close the entries on July 31, 2019 at 11:59PM Eastern Time. You should send your entries to me via PM any time between now and then, and you're free to send additional PM's if you want to edit your list as you see fit... (I will be participating, so please label your entries and use spoilers if possible, but I promise not to look until July 31 or when I submit my final list to one of the participants, whichever comes first.)

RULES
Entry: Send me a list of up to 25 names
Scoring:
20 points for each correct host – if there are multiple hosts in one week, 20 points for each host.
10 points for a musical guest (if a host also is the musical guest you will not receive this 10 points)
5 points if it's the persons first time hosting SNL

NEW RULES FOR 2019
If the musical guest is a group and you have an individual on this list that is in the group, the individual gets the points. For instance, if the Isley Brothers (I know they no longer exist but it's an example) are on the show and you had Ronald Isley on your list, you get the points. If you have both the Isley brothers and Ronald Isley, it counts once since one is a subset of the other. If you have "Isley Brothers" on your list and one or two Isleys is/are hosts or musical guests, it counts once as well.

If there are two cohosts, you get the points twice.

Send all entries to me by 11:59PM Eastern Daylight Time Tuesday July 31, 2019. After the deadline, I'll list the entries in this thread. If you have any questions about the game, feel free to ask them here.

Mine are submitted. I actually gave it some thought this time instead of recycling a previous list, because that majorly backfired on me this year!
