Justin Bieber Slated for “SNL” Hosting, Musical Gig

Nearly ten years ago, heartthrob pop act Justin Timberlake surprised the world with an acclaimed double-duty turn on “Saturday Night Live.”

Justin Bieber will attempt to create the same magic this February. NBC confirmed that the teen heartthrob will serve as host and musical guest on the February 9 episode.

NBC’s press release notes that the appearance will support his “Believe Acoustic” album, which hits stores later this month.

Next up for SNL is Jennifer Lawrence, who hosts with musical guests The Lumineers on January 19. Adam Levine then hosts with music from Kendrick Lamar on January 26.
