During an interview with SNL producer Lorne Michaels today, Alec Baldwin read a list of confirmed hosts and it appears that Justin is scheduled to be both a host and music guest sometime this year.
“The biggest names in the business are coming here thirty-something years [after ‘SNL”s debut] to host the show,” Baldwin said, reading off the legendary cork board that indicates the roster for the current season of the show. “Ben Stiller, Melissa McCarthy, [who] won the Emmy award, and Katy Perry’s coming and Jimmy Fallon, who’s double-dipping on your payroll, Jonah Hill, and I don’t want to ruin any other names, [but] Bieber’s confirmed, he’s the music and the [host].”
JB has never hosted “SNL,” but appeared as the musical guest on the April 10, 2010 episode with host Tina Fey, where he appeared in several sketches. He also stopped by when Dana Carvey hosted in 2011.
