Drake will get a prime opportunity, later this month, to join the rest of us in making fun of Drake. On the 5/14 episode of Saturday Night Live, for the second time, Drake will serve as both host and musical guest on the same episode.
Meanwhile — and this is extremely fucking cool — Courtney Barnett will be the musical guest on the show’s 5/21 season finale. Indie rock ally and SNL veteran Fred Armisen will host the episode, and it seems likely that he had something to do with getting Barnett booked. In any case, Barnett has been slaying all of her late-night performances, and it’ll be great to see hear tear that stage apart.
Meanwhile, on the show’s 5/7 episode — this Saturday — Alicia Keys will serve as musical guest. Her new song “In Common” is really good. Newly minted Oscar winner Brie Larson will host.
