Sydney Sweeney To Make ‘SNL’ Hosting Debut & Josh Brolin Returns; Kacey Musgraves & Ariana Grande Set As Musical Guests

Saturday Night Live has set its latest tranche of hosts and musical guests.

The long-running NBC series returns with three consecutive shows starting on February 24. Controversial comedian Shane Gillis, who was fired from SNL in 2019 five days after securing the job, was previously announced to host that show with musical guest 21 Savage.

Next up, Sydney Sweeney will make her hosting debut on March 2 with Kacey Musgraves as musical guest.

They will be followed by Josh Brolin as host and Ariana Grande as musical guest on March 9.

Sweeney is coming off the back of one hit movie and one that flopped. She stars alongside Glen Powell in romantic comedy Anyone But You, which has become a surprise box office hit with nearly a $200M worldwide opening. She is also in Madame Web, alongside Dakota Johnson, crawled to a $26M opening in its first six days in the U.S. and has received bad reviews.

She is also starring in Immaculate, a thriller premiering at SXSW that opens on March 22.

Musgraves, whose new album comes out on March 15, returns for her third appearance.

Meanwhile, Brolin is coming to the show after his latest film, Dune: Part Two, comes out on March 1. He has previously hosted in October 2008 and April 2012.

Grande, whose new album comes out on March 8, has also appeared as musical guest twice before – in September 2014 and March 2016. She pulled double duty for the latter, also appearing as host.

Saturday Night Live is produced in association with Broadway Video. The creator and executive producer is Lorne Michaels.
