Ariana Grande Will Be SNL’s Host And Musical Guest Next Month

On the last episode of Saturday Night Live — the one where Kanye West performed — we learned that Future would be the show’s next musical guest. He’ll appear on the 3/5 episode alongside host Jonah Hill. And a week after that, someone new will enter the rarified ranks of those who serve as host and musical guest on the same episode. Ariana Grande, whose new album has been looming off in the distance for while, will do double duty on the 3/12 episode, and she’ll debut music from her as-yet-unannounced new album, which is apparently now called Dangerous Woman. Grande has been a musical guest on the show before; she and the Weeknd performed together on the 2014 season premiere. And she has acting experience; she was on the Nickelodeon shows Victorious and Sam & Cat before breaking out as a singer. Still, SNL and kids’ sitcoms are different universes, and this will be a big test of both her chops and her celebrity.
