Lin-Manuel Miranda has been tapped to host Saturday Night Live on October 8, 2016. Now that he has some free time since he’s finished up performing in Hamilton, the Emmy, Tony, Grammy, and Pulitzer Prize winning artist will be making his debut appearance as SNL host. Can I put in a request now for a completely musical episode of SNL, please?
Joining Lin-Manuel Miranda for the October 8th episode will be musical guests Twenty One Pilots. Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun of Twenty One Pilots are also making their first appearance on the show as musical guests. Twenty One Pilots made Billboard chart history by having singles “Ride” and “Heathens” in the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart simultaneously.
NBC recently announced Margot Robbie and The Weeknd are set for the SNL season 42 premiere.
