Saturday Night Live announced its next bunch of musical guests and hosts Monday (Jan. 23), with Alessia Cara and Ed Sheeran accompanying Kristen Stewart and Alec Baldwin, respectively, in the coming weeks.
Cara will take the stage — marking her SNL debut — on Feb. 4, while Sheeran will perform on the Feb. 11 show. After SNL sneakily announced that the “Scars To Your Beautiful” singer is the show’s next musical act, she expressed her excitement on Twitter.

This will be Sheeran’s second time performing on SNL, as he first graced the Studio 8H stage to sing his x hits “Don’t” and “Sing” in April 2014. Like Cara, Stewart will also be making her SNL debut, hosting the show in line with promoting her directorial debut Come Swim, which is premiering at Sundance Film Festival and features a score by St. Vincent.
As for Baldwin, his hosting gig marks his 17th time spearheading the late-night sketch show — a record-breaking feat that will likely include his beloved impression of now-President Donald Trump.
