When Justin Timberlake returns to host “Saturday Night Live” next month, none other than [artist id=”3061469″]Lady Gaga[/artist] will join him as musical guest during the May 7 show. A source confirmed the booking to MTV News, though no official confirmation has come though from “SNL” reps.
Gaga last appeared on the show in October 2009 in what went down as one very memorable episode. Gaga and Madonna poked fun at pop-star rivalries during the sketch “Deep House Dish,” where they had a catfight and nearly kissed.
That night, Gaga performed two songs: a high-concept take on “Paparazzi” and a piano-driven performance of her dance track “LoveGame.” She later appeared in a sketch alongside Andy Samberg, when both of them wore her famous bubble dress.
Being that this latest appearance comes just as Gaga is dropping her May 23 album release Born This Way, there’s a good chance she’ll perform lead singles “Born This Way” and “Judas.” Or, as she’s known to do, she might just dazzle fans with a brand-new track.
This is the latest promotional appearance announced for the album, including a May 27 appearance on “Good Morning America” that will kick off the show’s summer concert series and the May 7 premiere of Gaga’s highly anticipated HBO special , which was taped at New York’s Madison Square Garden in February. She also just wrapped up work on her video for “Judas,” though no date has been set for its release.
