Yesterday, Alec Baldwin interviewed Saturday Night Live‘s executive producer Lorne Michaels on his “Here’s The Thing” podcast. During their conversation, Baldwin read the board of confirmed SNL hosts that was in Michaels’ office, letting it slip that Justin Bieber will be hosting SNL in the upcoming months. Though this information has not yet been confirmed by the NBC network, Michaels confirmed the announcement while on air with Baldwin. I wonder how NBC feels about this leaked information…
According to Balwin and Michaels, the Biebs will be both the host and musical guest, following in Katy Perry’s footsteps. This will be the “Mistletoe” singer’s first time hosting the show, though he has performed on the SNL stage before. In April 2010, Bieber served as the musical guest and has since appeared in a Church Lady skit and digital short.
I’m anxious to see Justin’s acting skills be put to the test. Besides having a guest spot on CSI during the 2010-2011 season, the Biebs hasn’t been in much. This being said, he is slated to have a major role in Mark Walhberg’s upcoming basketball movie. I’m crossing my fingers for a hilarious musical digital short!
This Saturday Zooey Deschanel will be hosting SNL with Bon Iver as the musical guests. The following week (Feb. 11), Channing Tatum will host the show with music by Karmin.Tags: Alec Baldwin, Here's The Thing, host SNL, Justin Bieber, Lorne Michaels, Podcast, SNL
