Lohan Hosts Saturday Night Live Season Finale May 21st
"SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" CLOSES OUT ITS 30TH SEASON WITH HOST
LINDSAY LOHAN AND MUSICAL GUEST COLDPLAY ON MAY 21
NEW YORK - May 11, 2005 - NBC's "Saturday Night Live"
finishes up its 30th season with Lindsay Lohan hosting and a special
performance from musical guest Coldplay on Saturday, May 21 (LIVE 11:30 pm
- 1:00 am).
One of the hottest young actresses today, Lohan makes her second SNL
hosting appearance. She recently co-starred with Tina Fey in the comedy
smash "Mean Girls," (written by Fey and produced by Lorne
Michaels) which was just nominated for four MTV Movie Awards. Lohan hosted
those awards last year where she was named "Female Breakout
Star." Lohan will next be seen in Disney's "Herbie: Fully
Loaded." And has two other films to follow: "Just My Luck"
and "The Prairie Home Companion" opposite Meryl Streep.
Recently, Lohan pursued her musical ambitions, releasing her first record,
"Speak," in 2004. Her other film credits include the hit comedy
"Freaky Friday" with Jamie Lee Curtis, "Confessions of a
Teenage Drama Queen" and Disney's well-regarded remake of "The
Parent Trap" with Dennis Quaid and Natasha Richardson.
Joining Lohan and making their second appearance on the show is musical
guest Coldplay. One of the biggest bands in the world, the British group
will perform songs from their eagerly anticipated third album "X
& Y." The record, due in June, is the follow up to their Grammy
Award winning multi-platinum "A Rush of Blood To The Head" and
their equally huge "Parachutes." The band also has the
distinction of being the only band ever to win the Grammy for Best
Alternative Music Album for two consecutive years. Coldplay's first single
"Speed of Sound" is already at the top of the charts, debuting
at #1 when it was released on the iTunes music service and in the Top Ten
on Billboard's Singles Chart.
"Saturday Night Live," which premiered on October 11, 1975,
is from SNL Studios in association with Broadway Video. The creator and
executive producer is Lorne Michaels. Steve Higgins produces. Marci Klein
and Mike Shoemaker are producers. Beth McCarthy Miller directs.
