SNL announced the big news tonight during their show featuring John Mulaney and musical guest Jack White. Glover also joins a limited list of people who have both hosted and performed on the show during the same episode in the past. Previously, Drake, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake and Ariana Grande have done double duties on the show.
Will Gambino debut some new music on the show? Let’s hope for the best. Last month, he told Stephen Colbert that being a rapper felt “awkward” to him.
