She's tired of them. You're tired of them. We're tired of them.
Obviously, it's time.
In her recent interview with Time Magazine, Kristen Wiig revealed that she is ready to retire two of her most notable (and rather annoying) characters on SNL: Gilly and Penelope.
Refresher: Gilly is the mischievous frizz-ball kiddie that loves causing trouble and Penelope, the endless one-upper.
It's not like we didn't find these characters HIGHlarious at the time…but it's been AWHILE and we're ready for new material - and so is Kristen. In fact, she was smart enough to see that the characters have run their course; she didn't need Lorne Michaels to retire them for her.
Perhaps, its for this reason and so many others, that Lorne named her one of the "top three or four performers all-time" on SNL.
That's quite a compliment…one we agree she deserves!

Not only do we love love love both of these performers, but we think they'll prove to have amazing episodes of SNL!
We let you guys know earlier that Elton would be hosting, and now we hear that Helen Mirren is also slated to host the long-time running sketch comedy show in April, the week after him!
Elton's got April 1st and will also be the musical guest with Leon Russel, and Helen landed April 9th alongside the Foo Fighters.
We bet Helen Mirren is the biggest Foo Fighters fan! LOLz!
Both are in their 60's and it'll be their rookie time hosting!
So, are U excited to watch these episodes like we are??

We completely agree that it was the biggest in terms of how awesome it was, and it turns out that it was also the biggest in terms of numbers!!
This was the BEST Grammys show in a long time!!
According to the preliminary Nielson ratings, the show brought in a staggering 26.5 MILLION viewers last night! Wow!
And that's up 3% from last year! When we're talking numbers that big, 3% is a huge jump!
Congrats to all the winners and performers last night! It was incredible, and with that kind of viewership, you guys can be extra-proud!
Did U watch??

All right! They really our showcasing some of the best music that came out this past year!
Although the first list of performers was already announced, expect to see quite a few more acts at the upcoming 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, which will now include Usher on stage with Justin Bieber and Jaden Smith for what's being described as a "dynamic, energetic performance," Bruno Mars, B.o.B. and Janelle Monáe in a collaborative set, as well as Lady Antebellum and British rock band Muse!
This is off the charts - even for the Grammys!
Definitely worth tuning into this year, we'd say!
What do U think?? Are U excited for all of the Grammy performers??

Okay, so they haven't announced Britney as a performer yet. Don't worry…she'll be there!
The first performers announced for the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards include Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, Arcade Fire, Cee Lo Green, Eminem, and Miranda Lambert!
This will be Arcade Fire and Miranda Lambert's first Grammy performances.
Should be an AWESOME night filled with teenage dreams, dancing in the dark, and Cee Lo Green singing
F*@! Forget You AND Brit Brit!!!!
…Keep an ear out for the Britney announcement. And yes, if we're wrong, U can hold it against us. LOLs.
