The multi-hyphenate talent behind FX's Atlanta will serve as host in his show debut for SNL, and his MC alter ego Childish Gambino will also perform as the night's musical guest.
Some hope he might bring in Deadpool 2 star Ryan Reynolds for a choice cameo that might make light of the matter.
Another big wish list item is for the musical artist to drop some new music well ahead of his forthcoming fall tour.

And, of course, the thing everyone seems to be looking forward to is the moment when he, as host, introduces himself as the musical guest.

Glover joins a list of performers who doubled as both guest and host of the series, including Britney Spears, MC Hammer, Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson and more.
