Harry Styles to Host Saturday Night Live for the First Time

He'll also pull double duty as the musical guest

Amanda Bell

Harry Styles is taking over Saturday Night Live next month. The singer and actor will make his hosting debut on Nov. 16 and serve as musical guest for the same episode. Styles tweeted the news on Thursday.

Styles has previously appeared as a musical guest on SNL four times, three of which were as a member of One Direction, while the most recent was a solo appearance. In addition to performing, Styles has also participated in quite a few memorable sketches. In 2017, when he was a solo musical guest during Jimmy Fallon's episode, he guest-starred as a Confederate soldier in the Civil War helping his Union army captors update their hype song and made an ultra-GIFable appearance as Mick Jagger for a Celebrity Family Feud: Time Travel skit.

Styles joins a growing list of big names who are taking the stage during Saturday Night Live Season 45. Next up on Oct. 26 is Chance the Rapper, who will also pull double duty as both host and musical guest. On Nov. 2, Kristen Stewart returns as host after her F-bomb-tastic debut in 2017. Eddie Murphy is also scheduled to make a return to the SNL stage for the first time in 35 years on Dec. 21. The season premiered with Woody Harrelson as host and has since seen Phoebe Waller-Bridge and David Harbour step up to the stage as well.

Saturday Night Live airs live at 11:30/10:30c on NBC.
