The controversial business mogul has divided fans after becoming the last high profile figure to take the helm of the longtime show on May 8.
But the mixed opinion was cast aside as Musk, 49, partied in the early hours with Grimes – real name Claire Boucher – and SNL co-star Miley in New York City.

Earlier in the evening, Musk and Miley appeared in a Mars-themed SNL skit, starring Pete Davidson fan-favorite character Chad.

Musk, of course, is the founder, CEO, CTO, and chief designer of SpaceX.

The decision to bring in Tesla CEO and “ Technoking ” Elon Musk to host the NBC sketch show was seen as a risky bet by creator Lorne Michaels to raise ratings and broaden audiences.
For the first time in SNL’s 46-year history, the episode featuring Musk was broadcast live internationally on YouTube to more than 100 countries. The stream was not available to US viewers.
“SNL is a global phenomenon and this livestream marks the first time audiences around the world will see the show simultaneously with the United States,” Frances Berwick, president of NBCU Entertainment Networks, said in a statement.

“It’s incredibly exciting to create this global event with host Elon Musk and musical guest Miley Cyrus,” he added.
Saturday’s episode of the show quickly became one of the most anticipated of all time, due to the decision to name the controversial Tesla boss as the host for the evening.
The move sparked an instant reaction from her longtime cast members when it surfaced last month, with many searches at Musk on social media.
