No, he's definitely not the most comfortable person we've ever seen in front of a camera, but then again, he's not a presenter and he is a self-confessed weird guy.

His line "I reinvented electric cars and I'm sending people to Mars in a rocket ship… did you think I was also going to be a chilled normal dude?" should've given us a good indication of what the show's going to be like.

Yes, there were cringe-worthy moments, especially when his mom joined him on stage, but Elon's not an actor, he's an engineer and one of the richest people in the world.

He was able to make fun of himself and the ratings were pretty good compared to other shows.

According to Nielsen's household numbers, the Tesla and SpaceX frontman's Saturday Night Live debut tied for third-highest this season, with a 4.8 household live and same day rating.

During his monologue, the South African-born billionaire admitted that he's the first person with Asperger's to host SNL, "or at least the first person to admit it".

Musk even managed to make fun of former football star, OJ Simpson, who was acquitted of murder and who has also hosted the show.

For a socially awkward, highly intelligent engineer who named his kid X Ǣ A-Xii, we think he killed it.
