Donlad Glover to host AND perform as the musical guest on ‘SNL’


Donald Glover will be pulling a rare double-duty on Saturday Night Live in May.

Saturday Night Live announced Sunday morning that renaissance man Donald Glover will be hosting the show on May 5 with musical guest Childish Gambino, a.k.a. the rapper alter ego of Donald Glover.

May 5 will be Glover’s first time hosting SNL and also his first time as the show’s musical guest. Only a handful of people have held down both roles in SNL history; Glover will be joining the ranks of Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, and Britney Spears, to name a few.

Inevitably, people online began making jokes about how Donald Glover will doing both host and musical guest roles.

The actor/rapper will be playing Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, which will undoubtedly breathe some inspiration into the sketch writers at SNL. Glover is also the creator and star of Atlanta, and had one of the hilarious leading roles in Dan Harmon’s comedy series, Community.

Around the time he landed his role on Community, Glover was also working as a writer on 30 Rock, a comedy series created by SNL legend Tina Fey. Before that, he was a part of the sketch comedy group Derrick Comedy, so he’s no stranger to the work he’ll be doing on SNL.

Glover has also dabbled in stand-up comedy and most recently won a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance for the Childish Gambino song, “Redbone.”
