SNL alum Maya Rudolph will return to host for the second time Saturday, March 27, when the show returns from a mini break. Harlow, who received a Grammy Award for “Whats Poppin,” said the gig was a “dream come true” on Twitter. “I grew up watching SNL with my family every weekend,” he wrote in February, when he and Rudolph were announced. “I vividly remember seeing Kanye perform Love Lockdown and Heartless in 2008. Thank you for making this happen. Another dream come true.”
On Tuesday (March 16), NBC’s long-running sketch comedy show announced Oscar-nominated Judas and the Black Messiah actor Daniel Kaluuya will make his hosting debut on April 3, when St. Vincent will mark her second time performing on the show following her 2014 debut. The indie singer’s upcoming album, Daddy’s Home, will be released on May 14.
“Saturday Night Live has been my favorite show since I was a kid and I can’t believe I get to play it AGAIN,” she tweeted.

On April 10, Oscar-nominated Promising Young Woman actress Carey Mulligan will make her SNL hosting debut. And it’s surprisingly also Kid Cudi’s first time being the musical guest. He previously made his one-and-only musical cameo during Kanye West’s star-studded run through “Ghost Town” from ye when West was the musical guest in 2018. Cudder’s last album, Man on the Moon III: The Chosen, landed the rapper his fifth top 10 album on the Billboard 200 in December. He tweeted the happy news and, like Harlow, emphasized it was a “dream come true” on his Instagram Story.
Phoebe Bridgers, who made her own (literally) smashing debut in February and collaborated with Cudi on “Lovin’ Me” from his latest album, congratulated him with heart emojis under his secondary tweet that read, “If u know me, u know snl is a huge dream of mine. This is huge. Cannot friggin wait!”
But we’ll still have to wait a few more weeks before Day ‘N’ Saturday Nite Live go down.
