Justin Timberlake & Lady Gaga to host SNL Season Finale!

Also, Tina Fey and Seth Green coming in May!

By episode number:

700 "Tina Fey" & Taio Cruz May 7, 2011
701 "Seth Green" & Big Time Rush May 14, 2011
702 "Justin Timberlake" & Lady Gaga May 21, 2011

Justin Timberlake is ready to flex his live acting chops. The entertainer has reportedly been tapped to host the season finale of 'Saturday Night Live' on May 21, according to a tweet from the official 'SNL' Twitter account. Though the tweet was quickly deleted, the message was in response to a fan asking who would serve as master of ceremonies during Season 36's last episode.

"I didn't realize that @nbcSNL isn't back until May 7th!!! What am I going to do!? Is Tina Fey the season finale!"' the fan wrote. "Nope! We have Timberlake after that," responded a rep using the 'SNL' Twitter page.

This marks the first time that Timberlake has hosted 'SNL' since May 9, 2009. His past appearances have been wildly popular thanks to his viral videos for '$ in a Box' and 'Motherlover,' earning a Emmy Award [for Junk in a Box in 2007 and again] for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series in 2009. He made his first hosting appearance in 2003, and also served as musical guest, reprising his hosting duties two more times since then.

Timberlake has been focusing more on his acting career since the release of his 2006 sophomore album, 'FutureSex/LoveSounds.' He will next be seen in the raunchy comedy 'Bad Teacher,' co-starring ex-girlfriend Cameron Diaz. The film lands in theaters on June 24.


From Freya:

Timberlake and Gaga will be the last host & Musical Guest of the season. Haha i knew that Akiva had accidently let the cat out of the bag on the Comedy Awards red carpet!

Thanks to Freya for the Timberlake scoop!

Seth Green? What do you think of that?

So did Seth Meyers slip on the host a little early (or whoever tweets from that account)? (Seth tweets from a few SNL-related accounts, so I just assume he does most of the SNL tweets.)

How about a new musical digital short with Andy and Justin? How sweet would that be? Plus it gives TLI an automatic hit to put on their third album. =^)

Happy Easter!

I may be revealing my age here, but Big Time Rush will be epic! I hope that they parody themselves.
