“Saturday Night Live” announced the comedy sketch show’s host and musical guest Saturday for Feb. 27. — Nick Jonas and Nick Jonas.
Jonas will be pulling double duty on “SNL” next week on the show’s fifth consecutive episode of the year. It’ll be his first time as both the show’s host and musical guest.
“A dream come true. Let’s get it @nbcsnl!! See you February 27th!” Jonas wrote on Instagram alongside the big news.
The “Voice” coach is scheduled to perform his upcoming single “Spaceman,” which will be released Feb. 25, according to Variety and Deadline.
This isn’t Jonas’ first musical stint on “SNL,” though it is his first time hosting.
The artist was last on the show in 2019 where he reunited with his former band The Jonas Brothers for the trio’s first return to the program since 2009. They performed their new single at the time, “Sucker” and a second number surprise medley, which started with the single “Cool,” before Nick Jonas announced, “Let’s bring it back right now” and rolled back to their fan-favorite 2008 single “Burnin’ Up.”
Jonas’ brother Joe Jonas and fellow celebs showed their support for the artist’s “SNL” gig.
“Let’s get it,” Joe Jonas commented on the announcement on Instagram.
Actor Jonathan Tucker wrote: “SATURDAY NICK LIVE.”
Pulling double duty for “SNL” is not uncommon.
In 2012, Bruno Mars served as both host and musical guest and in 2019, Chance the Rapper, Halsey and Harry Styles did the same.
Tonight’s “SNL” host is “Bridgerton” star Rege-Jean Page, who will be joined by rapper Bad Bunny (real name Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio), a five-time Grammy nominee who joined Jennifer Lopez and Shakira during the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show.
Both stars will be making their “SNL” debuts.
Last week’s guest host was Regina King who starred in a skit taken from the week’s viral headlines – as a woman who used Gorilla Glue in her hair to disastrous results.
