Saturday Night Live is tapping Ariana Grande for double duty.

The singer is set to host and will also be the musical guest for the NBC late-night show's March 12 telecast, it was announced Thursday.

Jonah Hill will host the week prior, on March 5, with musical guest Future.

Grande's return to SNL, on which she previously performed in 2014, comes in the wake of the singer's doughnut-licking controversy last year. Grande issued several apologies after she was captured on video at a doughnut shop licking unpurchased baked goods, saying "I hate America." The SNL stint coincides with the release of Grande's latest album.

This will mark Hill's fourth time hosting, ahead of his next film, Todd Phillips' War Dogs, due out in August. Future, best known for hits such as "DS2," is making his debut on the program.
