Justin Timberlake has just been announced as host and musical guest of Saturday Night Live this coming March.
In a statement made via press release (and posted on Zap2It.com), actor and musician Justin Timberlake will return to the hosting stage at Saturday Night Live on March 9th. He will not only host but will also be the musical guest. Another guy with the name Justin just did this same double-duty just a few weeks ago.
This should come as no surprise to fans of Justin Timberlake and Saturday Night Live as he has become a sort of pop culture staple on the late night comedy show appearing in several classic sketches, including D*ck In a Box with former SNL player Andy Samberg which won them a Creative Arts Emmy.
It was recently announced that comedian Kevin Hart will host Saturday Night Live on March 2nd with musical guest Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
Justin Timberlake will likely be performing his current chart-topper “Suit & Tie” as well as another single off his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience. No word on any celebrity guests, but you have to assume that he’ll be bringing some major A-List talent to the stage when he heads to Studio 8H at Rockefeller Center next month.
