Tesla CEO Elon Musk will host Saturday Night Live‘s May 8 episode with Miley Cyrus as the musical guest.
The announcement comes after Musk’s SpaceX launched a group of astronauts to the International Space Station in the company’s Crew Dragon spacecraft — marking the company’s second operational crew launch for NASA and its third to date. Musk’s company has now sent 10 astronauts to space in under a year.
Musk’s hosting gig is unique compared to the usual slate of actors and musicians who’ve hosted throughout the sketch comedy show’s 46th season. This will be the Tesla CEO’s first time hosting and Cyrus’ sixth time as a musical guest. Cyrus has previously hosted in 2013 and 2015.
The NBC show’s Twitter account shared the announcement with a series of rocket emojis. Cyrus also shared the news on her Twitter.
