Saoirse 'Sheersay' Ronan tries to pronounce unusual names

The Oscar-nominated actress (23) will host this weekend's episode of the iconic comedy show and, in a tongue-in-cheek promo for the episode, she can be seen gazing out of the window of the show's NY offices at the people below. "All these people have come out to see me", she tells cast member Cecily Strong.

A brief teaser has been released ahead of Ronan's stint as host and features her mistaking a crowd assembled to see the lighting of a Christmas tree with one that is there to see her.

The tables have been turned on Saoirse Ronan, whose name often causes confusion for people outside of Ireland, as she tries to pronounce some unusual names with hilarious results!

Saoirse is scheduled to host this Saturday night, December 2.

Accompanying Ronan will be fellow Dubs U2, who will be performing songs from their brand new album Songs of Experience, as well as bringing their Irish sense of humor to the wide American audience.

The band has performed on SNL three times already, but this is only Saoirse's first time on the show.

"Can you guys understand me?"
