It’s been a long week, so hopefully you have something fun planned for tonight. But whether you’re going to be out bar-hopping with friends or polishing off a bottle of wine on the couch, you won’t want to miss the latest episode of Saturday Night Live.
The reason you should tune in tonight — or at least set your DVR to catch up tomorrow — is that this season has been one of the late-night sketch show’s best. After killer ratings due to last year’s election, the big-time talent is really showing up on Season 43, both as hosts and musical guests.
So far, Ryan Gosling, Miley Cyrus, JAY-Z, and more have stopped by Studio 8H — and there are many A-listers still to come! Read on to find out who's hosting and who's performing on tonight’s SNL, as well as who's showing up in future weeks.
Host: Tiffany Haddish
Musical guest: Taylor Swift
Like The Big Sick's Kumail Nanjiani, who hosted a few weeks back, Tiffany Haddish was a breakout star of the summer. After cracking everyone up in the megahit flick Girls Trip, the 37-year-old actress — previously best known for The Carmichael Show and Keanu — will be promoting her book of essays, The Last Black Unicorn. As the new It Girl in Hollywood, she’s sure to bring that sparkle to her first hosting gig.
Joining her on the live stage is another It Girl — albeit, a much more well-known one — Taylor Swift, who last appeared on the show in 2015. The pop star’s album, Reputation, dropped yesterday, and we can’t wait to see if she’ll debut a new single. Plus, fingers crossed she pops up in a few skits!
Host: Chance the Rapper
Musical guest: Eminem
Though Chance the Rapper has been on the show before as the musical guest, this marks the first time the Grammy winner will try his hand at hosting. After a big year, which included a win for Best Rap Album, the 24-year-old won’t be there promoting anything except for his own charming self.
That said, there’s a chance Chance might also take the musical stage — but as backup to the night’s big performer, Eminem. The hip hop icon is releasing his ninth album, Revival, on Nov. 17, which is sure to make waves given that it's the 45-year-old’s first new music in four years.
