the weeknd demi lovato

Season 41 of "Saturday Night Live" is gearing up to return with a bang courtesy of some A-list acts and the line-up keeps on growing. Considering we're only four weeks away from the big October 3 premiere, iHeartRadio decided to round up a list of all the stars set to take the 30 Rock stage for the first few episodes.

Not only will Miley Cyrus host the season premiere of "SNL" on October 3, but she'll also serve as the musical guest for the episode. Let's see if she churns out a VMA-esque performance of "Dooo It!" 

The Weeknd will follow Miley the next week as Amy Schumer takes on hosting duties for the October 10 episode. He previously appeared with Ariana Grande to perform "Love Me Harder" in 2014.

Week three will see the return of "SNL" veteran Tracy Morgan and some musical performances courtesy of Demi Lovato.
