First up, on April 2, is Jerrod Carmichael taking his turn as host. Gunna will be the musical guest for that episode.
A week later, on April 9, actor Jake Gyllenhaal will be stepping up to host, and “Bam Bam” singer Camilla Cabello will be the musical guest, most likely to promote her new album, “Familia.” Finally, on April 16, Lizzo will both host and be the musical guest.
There have been 42 episodes in which the show’s host has also served as the musical guest, with the most recent being “happier than ever” singer Billie Eilish on December 11, 2021. The first host to do double duty was Paul Simon on October 18, 1975.

Fans Are Excited To See Camila Cabello Perform On ‘SNL’ Again!
So excited to see Camila Cabello perform on SNL. Her performances in 2019 on the show are still my favorite of all time. I really hope this time she gets to do some skits. I was so impressed with her comedic timing/skills in Cinderella, she will be perfect for SNL skits. Thanks! pic.twitter.com/vbqQoKIKex

“Yesss!!! Camila Cabello was one of my all-time fav performances on SNL and I am really excited to see her back on the show,” another commented. “Love her new song Bam Bam and I know she has amazing comedic timing so hope she’s be in the skids too. I’ll be watching!”
“Camila Cabello!” another wrote. “I love her humor and her performances are always different and consistent, so let’s see what she brings to the table this time.”
“I was waiting for Camila Cabello to be back on SNL and finally my wish is reality!!” said another. “She was brilliant in her previous appearance with both her performances back in 2019. I know she will be incredible once again!!”
Many fans also expressed disappointment that actor Tom Holland didn’t get a chance to host, especially considering that he’ll be in New York City in April. Maybe next time!
