Frank Ocean to Kick Off New Season of ‘SNL’

Live from New York, it’s Frank Ocean. The Odd Future crooner will make his “Saturday Night Live” debut next month.

Ocean has been booked as the musical guest for the 38th season opener, airing September 15 at 11:30 p.m. on NBC. He will perform material off his critically-acclaimed debut channel ORANGE alongside host Seth MacFarlane (“Family Guy”).

Prior to “SNL,” the New Orleans native will also take the stage at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on September 6, where he is nominated for three awards including Best New Artist and Best Male Artist.

Earlier this month, he pulled out of his European festival dates and opening slot on Coldplay’s tour.
