Kenan Thompson and Zooey Deschanel Kenan Thompson and Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel will bring her adorkable shtick to Saturday Night Live if promos for her hosting gig Saturday (11:30/10:30c, NBC) are any indication.

In these short clips, the New Girl star and SNL cast member Kenan Thompson goof around with jazz hands, fake fisticuffs and of course, a little singing. Check it out:

We'd like to request a special "What Up With That?" sketch in which DeAndre Cole (Thompson) actually allows Deschanel to sing. The musical guest that night will be Karmin.

In other SNL news, former cast member Maya Rudolph will return to host on Feb. 18 with Brooklyn duo Sleigh Bells as musical guest. Rudolph most recently made a splash on the big screen with the comedy Bridesmaids (we smell a parody sketch!) and stars alongside Christina Applegate and Will Arnett in NBC's comedy Up All Night.

Are you psyched to see Deschanel or Rudolph host?
