Last week, Machine Gun Kelly announced that he is finally checking Saturday Night Live off of his bucket list. As it turns out, MGK almost made his debut last year after broken COVID-19 protocols left NBC temporarily without a musical guest. In the end, the open spot went to Jack White.

Now, this Saturday, Jan. 30, MGK is hitting the show’s coveted stage for a few performances alongside host John Krasinski (The Office, A Quiet Place). On Thursday, NBC debuted the first teaser for the upcoming episode.

On Wednesday, Machine Gun Kelly arrived in New York City to begin rehearsals for his Saturday Night Live appearance.

He tweeted about watching the show as a kid with his aunt and dad who have both passed away. MGK mentions them in his emotional song “lonely,” off of Tickets To My Downfall, which he will be performing on Saturday.

“i remember when i was a kid watching @nbcsnl every weekend with my aunt and my dad, since they aren’t here to see this moment, i’m going to perform the song i wrote for them on the show hopefully i’ll feel them there.”

Machine Gun Kelly also took to his Instagram Story to further tease his SNL performance. In the video, he shows off his new guitar that he made especially for the upcoming appearance. However, the video is catching fans’ attention for a whole different reason. Both Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox can be seen wearing rings on their ring fingers, causing speculation that the couple may be engaged.
