Miley Cyrus really can’t be stopped. The “We Can’t Stop” singer has confirmed that she will appear as both the host and musical guest during the October 5 episode of “Saturday Night Live.” Another pop princess, Katy Perry, will also stop by the show later this season.
The appearance comes just days before Cyrus will drop her upcoming album, Bangerz, which will hit stores October 8. Cyrus previously hosted “SNL” back in 2011. On Monday (September 9), the same day the news broke, the singer dropped a new music video for her latest Bangerz single, “Wrecking Ball.” The video, in which Miley cries and appears naked on a — you guessed it — wrecking ball, was shot by famed photographer Terry Richardson.

Another big name slated to drop by Studio 8H this season is former “SNL” star Tina Fey, who will host the September 28 season premiere (Arcade Fire are set to play that episode). Meanwhile, one week after Cyrus plays double duty, Bruce Willis will host the October 12 episode, joined by “Roar” singer Perry as the night’s musical guest, “SNL” confirmed on Twitter. Perry will release her new album, Prism, on October 22.
Additional performers and hosts have yet to be announced. However, with those hosts and performers locked in, rumor has it that Lady Gaga may also serve as a host and performer at some point this season. “SNL” has yet to confirm the Mother Monster’s appearance on the show.
