This will be Manning's first time as a host and second appearance on the show. He popped up during his brother, Peyton's, monologue when the elder Manning hosted in 2007. Peyton also hosted the show shortly after leading his team, the Indianapolis Colts, to a Super Bowl victory.

Rihanna will perform on the show.

How do you think Eli will do as a host?
