Twitter swoons over Travis Kelce on Saturday Night Live
By Matt Conner
Travis Kelce made the entire internet swoon after his performance as host on Saturday Night Live.
We all knew that Travis Kelce would be good at the role. When asked to take on hosting duties on Saturday Night Live‘s episode on March 4, complete with musical guest Kelsea Ballerini, Chiefs Kingdom knew it was an ideal fit. After all, Kelce is charismatic at every turn and is comfortable in front of a crowd in any setting. Also, if he can handle the pressure of the Super Bowl, this is nothing, right?
As it turns out, Kelce was even better than we thought he could be.
Kelce was absolutely electric on Saturday Night Live, a naturally funny host who was affable and appealing in every way. He could embody the hilarious self-defense teacher Kurt Lightning or enjoy a nice cup of tea with his dolls at the American Girl Cafe. Even from the monologue, Kelce had viewers laughing as he settled into the night as host.
In case you missed the episode, you can catch several clips on Twitter itself including a couple of our favorites. First, if you missed the Kurt Lightning bit, we have you covered.
Also, the American Girls Cafe was equal parts creepy and comical (and was my personal favorite skit).
The only downside to the night, by the way, was that Creed Humphrey cameo that we didn’t get to see. The pre-recorded skit was cut from the show but they released the clip online and it was definitely worthy of the broadcast over some other material.
As for Kelce making everyone swoon, there were loads of tweets all night long praising the Chiefs tight end.
Even reluctant fans of other teams had to give him credit.
A lot of responses focused on the fact that Kelce is going to be just fine after retirement—which hopefully doesn’t happen anytime soon.
But about that worry…
