NBC announced hosts and musical guests for the upcoming season of ‘Saturday Night Live.’
Former alumni Tina Fey will return to host the show on Sept. 28 for the season premiere. This will be her fourth time returning to host since leaving the cast in 2006. She will pair with musical guest Arcade Fire.
On October 5, Miley Cyrus, coming off the infamy from her VMA gig, will pull double duty as both host and musical guest. She hosted previously in 2011.
Bruce Willis will host this season on October 12. He has also hosted only once before, way back in 1989, for what must have been promotion for ‘Moonlighting.’ Ah, memories. Musical guest Katy Perry will support Willis for his second time around. Neil Young did musical duty back in 1989.
Having Fey host the premiere is a smart move, bringing back a familiar face as the show transitions through a period of turnover. Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, and Jason Sudeikis left the show last season. Seth Myers will leave the show in December to host ‘Late Night.’
Miley Cyrus’ performance in 2011 was received fairly well. With her short hair, maybe she will reprise her impression of Justin Bieber. The Strokes hosted in 2011, so this time around it may be too much seeing her in every segment.
With Bruce Willis I am not sure what to expect, maybe he will poke fun at his departure from ‘Expendables 3.’
