Saturday Night Live has been busy casting big name hosts for the last shows of its 37th season. This past weekend, Eli Manning made his hosting debut to wide acclaim. Up next is former cast member Will Ferrell, who will no doubt be hilarious. And for the season finale on May 19th, none other than Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has been tabbed for hosting duties!
Mick is no stranger to Studio 8H. He first performed on the show with the ‘Stones in 1978. From there, he’s appeared as a solo performer in addition to numerous guest appearances in sketches. However, the upcoming finale will mark his first time as host. He will be the musical guest as well.
This year also marks the 50th anniversary for the Rolling Stones. No word on whether some of Mick’s bandmates will make a surprise appearance on the show, but we can always hope!
