Reba Fans Campaign to See Her ‘Live From New York!’

Reba McEntireGarth Brooks has done it, Taylor Swift has done it, even Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson both did it. Now Reba McEntire fans want her to do it — and they’re using Facebook to try to make it happen. And just what is it? It’s the coveted guest-hosting gig on NBC’s long-running ‘Saturday Night Live.’ While the show has featured several country music performances throughout its 35-year history, only a handful of country acts have pulled double-duty — most notably Taylor who took the reins earlier this season.

We all know the musical-guest portion of ‘SNL’ would be a cakewalk for Reba, but she’s also a seasoned comedic actress who has appeared in movies, in her own sitcom and on Broadway, not to mention her live hosting duties at the ACM Awards — all of which give her an edge when it comes to acting in front of a live audience. Seems like a no-brainer!

There’s also the argument that Reba already has a recurring role on ‘SNL’ this season … in the form of a hilariously bizarre character named after her. Kenan Thompson has appeared in two sketches as a cross-dressing, rap collaborating ‘Reba McEntire.’ (Watch video of Kenan’s ‘Reba’ debut below — but parents, be warned. It’s very racy!)

The idea for the ‘Reba to Host SNL in 2010′ page appears to have been inspired by a passionate pitch for another treasured comic actress, 88-year-old Betty White, who so far has more than 345,000 Facebook fans on her ‘SNL’ side.

We’re OK with that, but can Betty belt out ‘Fancy’?
