Drake to Make ‘SNL’ Debut in October

Drake

Live from New York it’s Drake! The Canadian superstar will appear for the first time on “Saturday Night Live” next month.

Drizzy has been tapped as the musical guest for the October 15 episode of the late-night variety show, hosted by actress Anna Faris. He will take the stage at 30 Rockefeller Plaza to perform material from his sophomore album Take Care, which drops on October 24.

It’s currently unknown if the rapper-actor will appear in a sketch. His Young Money comrade Nicki Minaj performed earlier this year and was included in several comedy skits, including an “SNL Digital Short” with Andy Samberg.

Other musical acts booked for the upcoming season include Lady Antebellum (Oct. 1), Foster the People (Oct. 8), and Michael Bublé (Dec. 17).

    Great, now I actually have a reason to watch SNL again. I’ve lost patience them ever since Tina Fey stopped impersonating Sarah Palin.

    Yay! I hope he does some sketches. I wondered why he hadn’t been on there already. Nicki’s sketches were pretty Epic w/ “The Creep”….

    Finally I’ve been waiting 4 my ngga Drizzy to be on SNL, truthfully I would’ve like to see him host and be the musical guest, he’s certainly talented enough to do both, but Anna Faris is awesome too, so it should be a good show, hope he does do a few sketches though, I’m sure him and Andy Samberg could come up with something hilarious
