An ‘SNL’ Audience Member Describes Her Brush with Live TV


“What was running through my head: ‘holy shit, no this is not happening. Is this for real? Uh, I have to say something?! Don’t fuck up, don’t fuck up… Sit up straight. My hand is on her back - where do I put my hand? I shouldn’t leave it on her back, right? Don’t look at the screen. Shit, I looked at the screen. My friends and family are probably going crazy - I can’t believe this is happening!’ And I felt like it lasted forever! Definitely one of the most memorable moments of my life.”
