Saturday Night Live has announced three upcoming groups of hosts and musical guests. Jason Bateman will host the SNL on December 5th, with country artist Morgan Wallen as the musical guest. The following week, Timothée Chalamet will host an episode with Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band. And finally, Dua Lipa will be the musical guest on December 19th, while former performer Kristen Wiig will be the host. Check out SNL’s announcement below.
Morgan Wallen was previously scheduled to perform live on Saturday night on October 10, but his performance was canceled after a video surfaced of him appearing to be parting without a mask and kissing people in a crowd. “I respect the show’s decision because I know I put it in danger and I take responsibility for it,” Wallen said in a video. Jack White took his place as the episode’s musical guest.
Bruce Springsteen released Letter to You earlier this year. He and the E Street Band last appeared on SNL in December 2015.
Dua Lipa’s second album Future Nostalgia was released in March. It’s up for the Grammy Award 2021 for Album of the Year. She made her SNL debut in 2018.
