WATCH: Emma Stone Fangirls Over BTS In New ‘SNL’ Promo

This weekend’s upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live will be a big one. Not only is Emma Stone hosting the show, but BTS will also be making their SNL debut as well as their first comeback since releasing their last album, Love Yourself: Answer, in August of last year. They are expected to perform their new single, “Boy With Luv,” from their new album, Map of the Soul: Persona, which will release this Friday, April 12th.

The La La Land actress has previously expressed her love of K-pop, so it isn’t surprising that in the new promo for Saturday Night Live, Emma Stone is seen fangirling over BTS, who has rised to international stardom within the past few years.

In the promo, which aired on TV but was captured by a fan, Emma Stone is having a sleepover, or “camping out” for the group’s upcoming SNL performance on the very stage they will appear on, all while wearing pink pajamas that say “BTS” on them. Stone’s sleepover guests are also wearing pajamas with the BTS logo on them and posters of the group can be seen in the background. Watch the hilarious clip below.

Not long after the promo went on TV, the official SNL Twitter account shared the longer version of the clip, which also showed comedian Kate McKinnon in the sketch alongside Stone. It is unclear whether the clip is part of a larger segment that will air this weekend.
