Saturday Night Live has revealed the upcoming slate of hosts and musical guests for the next three episodes—the show’s last for 2022—including performances from SZA, Brandi Carlile, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The next installments of the live sketch comedy program will air on December 3rd, 10th, and 17th and feature hosts Keke Palmer, Steve Martin and Martin Short, and Austin Butler, respectively.
This Saturday, December 3rd, former True Jackson VP child star Keke Palmer will host alongside musical guest SZA. Palmer appeared in two highly anticipated—though quite different—films this year with her roles in the Toy Story spinoff Lightyear as well as Jordan Peele‘s latest horror film, Nope. This will mark SZA’s return to Saturday Night Live after last performing in 2017.
The following week, on December 10th, Steve Martin will log his 16th appearance as host on SNL when he appears alongside co-host Martin Short. Though the concept of two hosts is somewhat foreign, Martin and Short are quite familiar both to each other and around the halls of 30 Rockefeller Plaza as they are known to frequently stop by for surprise cameos. Carlile’s return to SNL (her second performance in 14 months) will round out a banner year for the singer-songwriter that saw her fetch seven Grammy nominations. She also shared the stage with a pair of icons during Joni Mitchell‘s first live performance in over 20 years at Newport Folk Festival and Elton John‘s last U.S. concert at Dodger Stadium.
Finally, the last Saturday Night Live show of 2022 will feature host Austin Butler and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Another former child star on Nickelodeon (Zoey 101) Butler stepped into the role of The King earlier this year with his portrayal of Elvis Presley in the biopic Elvis. Supporting him will be New York City’s native indie rock children Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who earlier this year released Cool It Down, their first album since 2013.
Tune in to Saturday Night Live at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC or on demand on Peacock.
