When “Saturday Night Live” wraps up its season on May 21, it will have two of the biggest names in the entertainment world on hand to keep everyone buzzing through Monday morning. “SNL” darling and Hollywood A-lister [artist id=”1231683″]Justin Timberlake[/artist] has been tapped to host with pop music superstar [artist id=”3061469″]Lady Gaga[/artist] onboard to delight fans as the night’s musical guest.
It’s a pairing that has “SNL” writer/ “Weekend Update” host Seth Meyers very excited.
“Timberlake and Gaga! [I’ve got] nothing. It’s a month out!” he told MTV News at the Time 100 gala in New York City about his plans for the twosome.
“I’m not even thinking about it! I have two shows before then. I can’t believe how I’m slacking,” he joked, adding, “Mostly, I’m just taking care of the business ahead of me, like athletes taking it a game at a time.”
Fans would probably love to see Justin and Gaga pair up for a sketch, and the “SNL” head writer said he isn’t against that idea. “I would love it,” Meyers said. “[Lady Gaga] was great. She was one of the best musical acts we’ve ever had. Obviously, when it comes to being a performer, she’s without peer, so I’m really excited to have both of them there together.”
As for Timberlake, who has won two Emmys for his work on the late-night comedy staple, Meyers admitted, “Basically, he owns it!”
The multitalented pop stars will appear on the show in time to promote some of their latest projects. Timberlake’s flick “Bad Teacher” opens on June 24 and Gaga’s Born This Way drops May 23.
