I'm so tired, but I want to watch @nbcsnl in real time, so I'm going to enjoy a piece of chocolate cake from @portilloshotdog with a hot cup of coffee. That should keep me awake until breakfast time! @BTS_twt performing on the show is historic. Can't wait!

I've been watching SNL since the late '70s til I stopped watching in the 90s. Never seeing an Asian face on their staff always stung. But tonight I just saw 7 Korean faces gracing that damn stage and it was the best part of that show so I AM OVER IT. #BTSxSNL
