The new season of Saturday Night Live just started, and it’s already bringing some serious starpower in its musical-guest slots. Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga, two Super Bowl Halftime Show-caliber stars who have new albums coming out in the fourth quarter, will both be guests on the show in the coming weeks.
On the show’s 10/15 episode, Emily Blunt will serve as first-time host, while Bruno Mars, who just released his new single “24K Magic,” will serve as musical guest. This will be Mars’ fourth time as musical guest on the show; he’s also hosted once. Meanwhile, on the 10/22 episode, Tom Hanks, one of the all-time great SNL guest-hosts, will return to the show, while Lady Gaga will serve as musical guest. It’ll also be Gaga’s fourth time on the show, and she’s also hosted once. This time, she’ll show up a day after her album Joanne comes out.
On tomorrow night’s episode, Lin-Manuel Miranda is the host, and Twenty-One Pilots are the musical guests.
