It's Official: Justin Bieber to Host, Perform on 'Saturday Night Live' in February
Justin Bieber is headed back to Saturday Night Live.
After Bieber alluded to a possible SNL gig on Twitter earlier this week, NBC made it official on Wednesday morning. Bieber will pull double duty as host and musical guest for the Feb. 9 episode.
Bieber, who appeared on SNL as a musical guest in 2010 and made a cameo in the 100th digital short last May, would be the latest musician to host and perform on SNL, following in the footsteps of Bruno Mars earlier this season.
Jennifer Lawrence drops by Jan. 19 with band The Lumineers. The Voice coach and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is set to host SNL on Jan. 26 with musical guest Kendrick Lamar.
