Bruno Mars Tapped to Host ‘SNL’

Bruno Mars

Live from New York, it’s Bruno Mars. The Grammy-winning crooner has been tapped to host “Saturday Night Live” for the first time later this month.

The “Grenade” singer will pull double duty as host and musical guest on the October 20 episode of the late-night comedy show. He joins the elite ranks of musical guests-turned-hosts including Justin Timberlake and Mick Jagger.

The 26-year-old heartthrob will perform material off his sophomore album Unorthodox Jukebox, due December 11. The first single, “Locked Out of Heaven,” is scheduled to premiere tonight at 7 p.m. EST.

Bruno showed off his comedic chops earlier this month in a “Funny or Die” parody set to Salt-N-Pepa’s “Whatta Man.” In the funny visual, he proved what kind of man he really is by doing masculine things like arm wresting, invoking James Bond, and even re-enacting The Lion King.

    Im proud to hear that Bruno Mars is going to host SNL and join the ranks of people like Justin Timberlake and Mick Jagger. What’s more exciting is that we’re going to hear his new song. I’ve been enjoying the season thus far and it’s been giving me and my DISH coworkers plenty to talk about at work. I’ve been recording in on my Hopper each week which I love because when I play it back I’m able to start watching on my living room TV and then continue watching on any TV in my house right where I left off.
