After wrapping up 2020 with a holiday episode highlighted by Dua Lipa's powerhouse performance, Saturday Night Live is returning next week, and the lineup for its first three episodes of the year prove the show's picking up where it left off. Machine Gun Kelly, Phoebe Bridgers, and Nathaniel Rateliff are all set to hit the stage, and they'll be joined by hosts John Krasinski, Dan Levy, and Regina King, respectively. Each musical guest and host will be making their SNL debut.
Naturally, the artists and actors took to social media to reveal the exciting news.
"bucket list [check, mind blown emoji] see you next weekend! @nbcsnl" MGK tweeted.
"Aaaaaand cue the pinching myself. #SNL" Krasinski posted.
The Schitt's Creek star and co-creator simply quote-tweeted SNL and wrote "OMFG," while Bridgers shared a hilarious photo of herself on Instagram.
Rateliff revealed the news to his followers with the show's iconic intro phrase: "Live from New York..." and King has yet to react.
Krasinski and MGK's episode is set to air January 30, followed by Levy and Bridgers on February 6 and Rateliff and King on February 13. NBC has also announced SNL episodes on February 20 and 27; however, details have not been revealed.
