"Do You Know (What it Takes)" singer Robyn will serve as the night's musical guest.

This will mark Perry's first significant appearance on "SNL" since September 2010. That appearance came after outraged parents quashed her appearance on "Sesame Street" as too provocative. Perry responded to the incident — referred to by many as "Elmo-gate" — by putting in a very special appearance on "SNL," which can be viewed below for research purposes.
