Justin Bieber Will Host ‘SNL’ This Season
Live, from New York, it’s Justin Bieber!
Frequent ‘Saturday Night Live’ host Alec Baldwin confirmed via podcast that The Biebs will indeed host an episode of the show this season.
Per Best Week Ever, The Biebs will not just serve as the host. He will also perform and be the evening’s musical guest, as well. Bieber is just about to turn 18, so he’s young and has enough energy to pull double duty by hosting, acting in sketches and performing two songs.
The Biebs did appear in some skits when he was the musical guest and Tina Fey was the host, so he has some experience acting on the show. But being the host and appearing in all of the sketches is a whole other ball game. We think Bieber can handle it, though! We expect his comedic timing and touches to be nothing short of brilliant.
The ratings for that particular ep could go through the roof, if parents of the youngest Beliebers let their kids stay up past 11:30PM to watch their hero appear on the show and demonstrate his comedic chops.
It has not yet been determined which particular episode he will host. You can bet we’ll be watching. Will you?
