Jenna Ortega does ‘Wednesday’ dance for ‘SNL’ Promoto Lady Gaga's "Bloody Mary" on March 8. The 20-year-old actress will host her first episode of Saturday Night Live this coming weekend. In a new promo for the episode, Ortega got back into character as Wednesday Adams and did the now-famous viral dance number from her Netflix show Wednesday.
The comedy group Please Don't Destroy (Ben Marshall, John Higgins, and Martin Herlihy) come up to the actress, who is dressed as if it were Wednesday, and asks her to dance one more time.

As the next host of "Saturday Night Live," Jenna Ortega's first task is to get out of the "teenage purgatory" of doing the famous "Wednesday" dance again. Ortega starts the clip by reading a script on the set of "Saturday Night Live," which she will host on March 11 with The 1975 as a musical guest.
In a new "SNL" promo that came out on Wednesday, Ortega looks at a script while talking to the comedy trio Ben Marshall, John Higgins, and Martin Herlihy.
Honestly, this is really well written, I just don’t feel like I want to do the ‘Wednesday’ dance for promo because we’ve seen so much of that already and I think it’s time to do something new.- Jenna Ortega
As the camera moves to the three, Ortega points out their outfits after they said they "didn't want to do the dance either."One of the funnymen asks, "Is this from your television program?" while pretending not to know Ortega's Addams family character.

The PDD Boys agree with Ortega, but when the camera pulls back, it shows that they are dressed "down to the frill" in black dresses and braided wigs like Wednesday Addams. After acting like they don't know the "Wednesday" dance and didn't want to do it for the promo, Ortega finally gives in and lets them do it.
In true Wednesday Addams style, Ortega performs a small part of the dance between Higgins and Marshall on the famous "SNL" stage while Herlihy takes a picture of the moment with a smartphone. One more joke: "Wednesday Addams? More like Thursday Jones."After some hesitation, Ortega joins the other three dancers as the commercial ends.
The Wednesday dance is the most famous and well-known scene from the popular Netflix show. People have been drawn in not only by the dance but also by the interesting story behind it. Even though Ortega had never put together a dance before, she volunteered to do it herself.
In the months since Wednesday's debut on Netflix, the "Bloody Mary" challenge has gone viral on TikTok, with everyone from SEVENTEEN and Madonna to Mother Monster herself taking part. Ortega revealed after the premiere of the hit series that she had COVID while filming the original dance sequence to "Goo Goo Muck" by The Cramps.
Ortega will host her first episode of SNL in Studio 8H on Saturday, March 11, with The 1975 as the musical guest.


Jenna Ortega does ‘Wednesday’ dance for ‘SNL’ Promo for the Please Don't Destroy boy before she hosts for the first time. In November 2022, when the first episode of Wednesday came out on Netflix, a scene from the fourth episode, "Woe, What a Night," quickly went viral on social media.
In the scene, Ortega, as Wednesday Addams, dances to the song "Goo Goo Muck" by The Cramps in a very Wednesday-like way. The scene was so popular that people recreated the dance to Lady Gaga's "Bloody Mary" on the app TikTok.
