Maybe that is for the best. Or maybe they are just saving her impression for the show on Saturday.
This week, Maya Rudolph hosts Saturday Night Live with musical guest Sleigh Bells. We know this because we've already watched the new promos for her appearance (above) and we've heard her say it about six times.
We also noticed that Maya decided against whipping out herWhitney Houston impression for the promos, most likely out of respect for her passing. But you know, Donatella Versace is still with us. Couldn't hurt to say hello to one of those old skits, huh?!
Ch-ch-check out her promos with Andy Samberg for the chuckles. Are U excited for her hosting gig? Do U think she'll bring out her Whitney for the real show?
The show paid a silent tribute to Whitney by displaying a picture of her with SNL alum Molly Shannon from a 1996 Mary Katherine Gallagher sketch.
Interestingly enough, Maya Rudolph, who did a Whitney impression on the show, will be hosting next week. We bet they will throw in another tribute to her next week - maybe this time with some laughs instead of tears.
