Kanye West, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Paul Simon Booked For SNL‘s 40th Anniversary Special
Saturday Night Live celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, and the show will mark the occasion with a big three-hour prime-time special on 2/15. A ridiculous array of celebrities is set to appear on the show, including a ton of past hosts and cast members. There are more than a few music-universe names in there, as well. Justin Timberlake, probably the show’s most consistently great guest host over the past decade, will appear. So will Taylor Swift and Paul Simon, both of whom have hosted the show and done musical-guest duty in the same week. And Kanye West, who’s had plenty of memorable musical-guest appearances and who also famously rapped “fuck SNL and they whole staff” on “Power,” is set to show up. Below, watch a couple of promos that aired during last night’s Super Bowl.
The special airs 2/15 on NBC at 8 eastern.
