Who’s Hosting ‘SNL’ Next Episode and Who Will Be the Musical Guest?
Following Regé-Jean Page‘s hosting on SNL, viewers may be wondering who’s hosting the next episode. Saturday Night Live didn’t keep people wondering for long. The show shared on Instagram who will be both the host and musical guest for next week’s episode. Read on to find out who it is.
Who hosted ‘SNL’ this week?
Regé-Jean Page hosted SNL this week after becoming a household name thanks to Shonda Rhimes-produced Netflix show Bridgerton. He poked fun at his character in Bridgerton and even sang Olivia Rodrigo’s song, “drivers license.” This marked Page’s first time appearing on Saturday Night Live, and the appearance happened only a couple of months after Bridgerton‘s release on Dec. 25, 2020.
The celebrity host on SNL next week, though, has hosted on the show before. This time, they’ll be doing double duty by hosting and performing as the NBC show’s musical guest.
Who’s hosting ‘SNL’ next episode?
SNL shared on its Instagram on Feb. 20 that Nick Jonas will be the celebrity host and musical guest on next week’s episode. His stint comes after the Jonas Brothers reunited after a long band hiatus for several years and he pursued a solo career. Jonas has released three solo albums during his career: Nicholas Jonas (2005); Nick Jonas (2014); and Last Year Was Complicated (2016).
Jonas recently has been filming The Voice, in which he appears as a celebrity judge for the singing reality television show. He has yet to announce any new music, but it’s possible he could surprise drop a new song on SNL during his live performance.
The Jonas Brothers were on ‘SNL’ in 2019 but this time Nick will be solo
The last time Jonas was on SNL, it was alongside his two brothers, Joe and Kevin, who are in the Jonas Brothers band together. The band rose to fame in 2006 when the music video for their cover to Busted’s “Year 3000” aired on Disney Channel. The band toured with Miley Cyrus, starred in Camp Rock, and got their own television show on the network, Jonas L.A. The Jonas Brothers have received two Grammy Award nominations: Best New Artist in 2008 and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Sucker” in 2019.
After four studio albums from 2006 to 2009, the band took a hiatus in 2013 before releasing what would’ve been their fifth album as a group (besides their concert albums and Disney Channel television and movie albums). They announced their comeback in early 2019 and released the band’s first single in years, “Sucker.”
The Jonas Brothers achieved with “Sucker” a career first — a Billboard No. 1 song. The album Happiness Begins came after that, as well as an Amazon Prime Video documentary, Chasing Happiness. The band released a concert documentary on the platform as well, titled, Happiness Continues, showcasing their concert tour for Happiness Begins.
The youngest Jonas brother being both the musical guest and celebrity host of the next episode of SNL raises eyebrows for what’s next for his brother’s band yet again. But there will likely be answers soon enough for Jonas Brothers fans everywhere. Until then, we’re excited to tune into Jonas hosting SNL next week.
