For the second time this season, a celebrity guest will pull “double duty” on Saturday Night Live.

NBC confirms that Ariana Grande will appear as the host and musical performer on the March 12 episode. Miley Cyrus filled both roles om the season premiere.

Grande has previously appeared as a musical guest, but this will mark her first time hosting the show.

As if there were any doubt, NBC notes Grande will “debut music from her highly-anticipated upcoming album.” In a “tea”-spilling on her official album website, Grande identified that new music as “Dangerous Woman,” the title track from said new album, and “Be Alright.”

Off this week, “SNL” returns with originals on March 5. Jonah Hill and Future are booked for that night’s episode.
