Nick Jonas to Make ‘SNL’ Hosting Debut, Will Also Serve as Musical Guest

Jonas to pull double-duty for the Feb. 27 show

“Saturday Night Live” is continuing its string of first-time hosts. Nick Jonas will make his hosting debut on Feb. 27, when he’ll also pull double-duty as the episode’s musical guest.

Jonas has appeared before as a musical guest, both as a solo artist in 2016 and as part of a Jonas Brothers reunion in 2019. Tonight’s show is hosted by “Bridgerton” star Rege-Jean Page, with Bad Bunny as the musical guest.

Jonas, who currently serves as a coach on NBC’s “The Voice” will in all likelihood perform his new single, “Spaceman,” which is set to drop on Feb. 25 just two days before the competition show returns on March 1. Jonas is also set to star alongside Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley in the film “Chaos Walking” from Lionsgate, due out March 5.

Jonas becomes the latest artist to host and serve as the musical guest for the same show. Others that have done this include Paul Simon, Ray Charles, The Rolling Stones, Frank Zappa, Debbie Harry, Dolly Parton, Garth Brooks, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Harry Styles.

The Feb. 27 episode will be “SNL’s” fifth consecutive week of new shows to kick off the 2021 portion of its 46th season. Previous hosts so far have included Dan Levy, John Krasinski and Regina King.

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