Justin Bieber Confirmed to Host 'SNL', Alec Baldwin Says


Revealing some future hosts for 'Saturday Night Live', the Jack Donaghy of '30 Rock' says that the 'Somebody to Love' singer as well as Jonah Hill are set to appear on the variety show.

After guest starring on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation", Justin Bieber will expand his career on small screen by hosting "Saturday Night Live", according to Alec Baldwin. During a Monday, January 30 broadcast of his WNYC podcast "Here's the Thing", the George Ellerby of "The Departed" revealed that the "Never Say Never" hitmaker is set to host the NBC variety show.

Baldwin was interviewing "SNL" executive producer Lorne Michaels in Michaels' office when he read a board of confirmed hosts. "The biggest names in the business are coming here thirty-something years [after SNL's debut] to host the show," he gushed.

"Ben Stiller, Melissa McCarthy, [who] won the Emmy award, and Katy Perry's coming and Jimmy Fallon, who's double-dipping on your payroll," the actor, who recently won best actor in comedy series at this year's SAG Awards, began mentioning the stars who have appeared earlier this season.

"Jonah Hill, and I don't want to ruin any other names, [but] Bieber's confirmed, he's the music and the [host]," Baldwin allegedly spilled the names of future hosts as he continued reading. Michaels reportedly confirmed it by saying "yes", 26 minutes into the podcast.

NBC has not released any comments on Bieber and Hill's possible hosting gig, but a source confirmed to MTV News that the "21 Jump Street" actor will appear on the show.

Bieber has never hosted "SNL", but he was featured as a musical guest in an April 2010 episode hosted by Tina Fey. The 17-year-old Canadian teen heartthrob also appeared in a few sketches.

"SNL", meanwhile, recently had the lead actor of "Harry Potter" film series, Daniel Radcliffe, as a host. Zooey Deschanel and Channing Tatum will next be seen fronting the show for February episodes.
