Travis Scott & Paul Simon Lined Up as Next 'Saturday Night Live' Musical Guests
“Crazy Rich Asians” star Awkwafina & “SNL” alum Seth Meyers will host.
Saturday Night Live is already promising quite the lineup for their new season. Earlier this month, SNL revealed that Adam Driver would host its season 44 premiere this Saturday along with musical guest Kanye West. On Thursday (Sept. 27), the late-night television show announced the hosts and musical guests of the following two episodes of the season.
Awkwafina, the breakout star of the summer blockbuster films Ocean’s 8 and Crazy Rich Asians, will host the Oct. 6 show, alongside musical guest Travis Scott. Scott recently released his album Astroworld and will kick off his tour in November. This show will mark both Awkwafina and Scott’s first times on SNL.
On Oct. 13, two SNL veterans will celebrate their homecoming. Host Seth Meyers, who spent 13 seasons on SNL, will make his return along with musical guest Paul Simon. This appearance will be Simon’s 15th time on SNL and one of his first appearances since concluding his sold-out Homeward Bound-The Farewell Tour, on Sept.22. Simon will also be celebrating his 77th birthday on the SNL stage.
Saturday Night Live returns Saturday night at 11:30 p.m. ET/8:30 p.m. PT on NBC.
