SNL is kicking off their May lineup with a bang, announcing musical performances by LCD Soundsystem, Haim and Katy Perry on Wednesday (April 26).

Beginning May 6, Chris Pine -- who is set to star in the upcoming Wonder Woman film -- will host alongside musical guest LCD Soundsystem. The following weekend (May 13), Melissa McCarthy will no doubt reprise her Sean Spicer impression as host, while Haim is set to perform -- hopefully with new music since they recently released a teaser announcement of a second album coming out and possible debut date. Finally, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will take on the hosting gig with Katy Perry at his side as the musical act on May 20.

All eyes will be on the “Chained to the Rhythm” singer, who caused a fan frenzy this week when she posted “The World’s Best Cherry Pie” recipe as a teaser for her next track “Bon Appétit.” Maybe she’ll be cooking up something sweet for us that includes the debut of the mysterious single.

Who else can’t wait for May?
