His songs will be covered on 'American Idol' — and he’ll return to the 'SNL' stage for the first time in more than 25 years.

Elton John is going to be all over TV next week.

On Friday, American Idol producers announced that next week’s show theme is Elton John songs.
As THR previously reported, The Rocket Man will also host and perform on Saturday Night Live Apr 2 — his first time on the show since 1982.
No word on what he’ll sing, but the last time he was on the show, he belted out "Empty Garden" and "Ball And Chain."
