“Saturday Night Live” makes strange bed fellows.

Legendary actress Betty White and hip hop mogul Jay-Z will be the featured guests on the May 8 episode of “SNL” on NBC.

White, 88, will host the show, and Jay-Z will be the musical guest. 

During a press conference, White told reporters “I’m thrilled to meet him. I’m thrilled to hear he’s going to be on the show because he’s the hottest thing since sliced bread.”

White’s appearance on the sketch comedy show stems from a Facebook campaign where fans petitioned to have the “Golden Girls” actress appear on “Saturday Night Live” for the first time.
