Elon Musk is set to host and Miley Cyrus will serve as musical guest when Saturday Night Live returns from its spring break with a new episode on May 8th.

SNL confirmed on Twitter that the meme-loving Tesla mogul will be making his SNL hosting debut:

Season 46 of SNL has seen a wide range of guest hosts — from comedians (Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Bull Burr) to former cast members (Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph) to musicians (Adele, Nick Jonas) — but the selection of Musk is the late-night series’ most left-field (and controversial) pick this season. The usually Twitter-present Musk has not yet commented about his hosting duties.

For Cyrus, the May 8th episode marks her sixth stint as SNL musical guest — seventh if you include her performance on the SNL 40th anniversary special — and her first appearance since she covered Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here” on an April 2020 SNL at Home episode early in the Covid-19 lockdown. The Plastic Hearts singer has also hosted SNL twice.

Cyrus most recently performed shows at both the Super Bowl and March Madness tournament.
