Saturday Night Live is an American late-night television show, which premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975 under the original title NBC's Saturday Night. Tina Turner was three times guest with live performances and as a sketch partner.

Her first appearance was on invitation from Rod Stewart in 1981, where they performed the duet Hot Legs together. Shortly after this, Tina joined Rod again at his L.A. Forum concert in Los Angeles. Tina's first solo appearance was in 1985 with live performances of three songs from her album Private Dancer and a sketch together with Martin Short. The last time was in 1997, where she promoted her Wildest Dreams album with a live version of the song In Your Wildest Dreams and a funny sketch, together with Molly Shannon (as a crazy fan) and Alec Baldwin (as Roger Davies).

Parts of Tina’s performances from 1985 and 1997 were released on the Saturday Night Live home video in 2003.
