Mick Jagger jokes about being an Australian performance artist in ‘SNL’ promos

The famed rocker seemed very at ease alongside cast member Kristen Wiig in the promos for his episode, released earlier this week.

In the actually funny clip, the 68-year-old musician made a guitar appear out of thin air through the power of television magic for Wiig, who it turns out can’t play. “That’s terrible. What a waste of magic,” Jagger declared.

He also joked about being an Australian performance artist who just wants to kiss kangaroos and hinted that he may do another “Mick and Mick” mirror sketch. (See below.)

While the season finale marks the first time Jagger has hosted the show, it may be the last time Wiig, Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis appear as cast members. The three are rumored to be departing after this season, although “SNL” honcho Lorne Michaels has said no decisions will be made until the summer.
