NBC Confirms HAIM, Lady Gaga for “Saturday Night Live”

Passionate fans cannot read a single music publication without encountering gushing over pop-rock act HAIM.

This November, the “Saturday Night Live” audience will find out why.

NBC confirmed Thursday that the sister trio, fresh off the release of its critically acclaimed “Days are Gone” and in the midst of fanfare for single “The Wire,” will serve as the “SNL” musical guest on November 23.

Their tunes will accompany a guest hosting appearance from “Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson.

One week prior, Lady Gaga will become the second act to perform double duty this season. Following in the footsteps of Miley Cyrus, Gaga will perform as the host and musical act on the November 16 episode.

Timed strategically, her episode will air five days after the release of her new album “ARTPOP.”
