Saturday Night Live has just announced its first round of musical guests and hosts for 2021.
Saturday Night Live will soon be back with new episodes and now, fans of the long-running sketch comedy series are finally in the know about who we can expect to see host and perform as part of the first few episodes of the new year.
SNL took to Twitter to make the announcement, which reveals that it’ll be John Krasinski who will kick things off as the first host of 2021. He’ll be joined by Machine Gun Kelly, who will serve as the musical guest on the show slated for January 30.

February 6 will find Schitt’s Creek star and co-creator Dan Levy playing host, with musical guest Phoebe Bridgers set to perform on the big night.
Levy took to Twitter shortly after news of his impending hosting gig hit the internet, tweeting “OMFG” in reaction to the big announcement.
Finally, Saturday Night Live’s February 13 episodes will find Academy Award winner Regina King taking on hosting duties, with Nathaniel Rateliff serving as the night’s musical guest.
One thing Krasinski, Levy, and King have in common is that none of the three have ever hosted SNL before. We’re sure fans of the actors will be incredibly excited to see what they bring to the table when their episodes air!
Saturday Night Live returns with all new episodes on January 30, 2021 on NBC.
