Saturday Night Live has its next musical guest lined up! The sketch comedy show announced during its Feb. 13 episode that Bad Bunny will be gracing Studio 8H Feb. 20. Hosting the show will be Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page. It will be both stars’ first appearance on the long-running NBC show.
Bad Bunny (born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio) had a busy 2020, including making history on the Billboard 200. The rapper earned his first No. 1 on the chart with El Ultimo Tour Del Mundo, which became the first all-Spanish-language album to reach the peak position in the chart’s 64-year-history.
The album was also the Puerto Rican artist’s third studio album of 2020, which also included YHLQMDLG — released in February and and peaked at No. 2 — and Las Que No Iban a Salir from May.
Page, meanwhile, has seen his fame skyrocket after Netflix’s steamy romance Bridgerton premiered to record numbers with its Christmas Day launch. The actor played the dreamy Duke of Hastings.
Fans of the stars quickly reacted to the news of the two appearing on the same episode of SNL:
“omgg rege-jean page and bad bunny on the same day i’m not well,” one Twitter user tweeted in response to the show’s announcement.
“Love next week’s host and musical guest,” added another.
