‘SNL’ Taps Migos, James Bay, Sterling K. Brown for Spring 2018 Episodes
Live from New York it's...a whole bunch of A-listers.
Saturday Night Live's 43rd season, which has so far welcomed Gal Gadot, Tiffany Hadish, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift and more as hosts and musical guests, announced an impressive roster for coming shows Tuesday (February 20) that includes an Emmy-winner, a Billboard chart-topper and a recipient of the Grammy for Album of the Year.
Charles Barkley, who's hosted the show three times, will spearhead the March 3 show with musical guests Migos (their Culture II debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200). Not to be outdone, This Is Us standout Sterling K. Brown will join forces with James Bay, who recently unveiled new single "Wild Love" for SNL's March 10 show, and where the March 17 episode is concerned, former SNL cast member Bill Hader will host with Arcade Fire, whose Everything Now dropped in 2017, serving as musical guest.
And fans of the show seemed pretty pleased with the new selections.
"Hopefully Stefon comes on to tell what tourists can find in NYC on St Patrick's night," one follower wrote, while another noted "Moving into my new place on the same day as Charles Barkley hosts SNL. #blessed."
Brown, himself, said his selection as host was a dream come true, and posted a video in which he practiced his entry to the revered comedy stage.
"This is truly a dream come true. I’ve watched Saturday Night Live since I was a baby. To finally get to host is one of the more surreal moments of my life, but it’s gonna be awesome," he tweeted.
