Earlier today, Justin Timberlake thrilled THE WORLD with the official announcement that he is going on a stadium tour this Summer with Jay-Z. So, if that wasn’t enough to get you JT fans all excited, here’s a bit more good news. Justin will return to host Saturday Night Live again for the fifth time next month. That’s right folks … while JT’s acting skills leave MUCH to be desired on the big screen, he’s going back again to the TV sketch comedy medium where he always excels. Click below to read the press release announcement from NBC.
SNL returns on March 2 with Kevin Hart making his hosting debut. Just finishing his record breaking worldwide arena tour, Hart is currently starring in and producing “Real Husbands of Hollywood,” and will next be seen in the concert film “Let Me Explain” in theaters in the summer. Musical guest Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will also make their SNL debut. Their album, “The Heist,” was released in October 2012 and their current hit single, “Thrift Shop” topped the Billboard Hot 100 Chart for four straight weeks. Multiple Grammy and Emmy Award-winning Justin Timberlake returns to SNL on March 9 pulling double-duty as host and musical guest. Entering his fifth turn as host, Timberlake’s third solo album “The 20/20 Experience,” due out March 19, is preceded by the Billboard chart-topping single “Suit & Tie.” “Saturday Night Live” is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
Now this is news that I can actually get excited about. Justin is so great on SNL. I dunno what it is … he manages to turn that show around and actually make it funny. While I normally do no like his acting style in movies (did any of y’all see In Time? Yeesh!), I really enjoy him on SNL. Might we get another Dick in a Box parody song? Could be. Tune in March 9 to find out :D
