Anna Kendrick to make Saturday Night Live debut in April
But, will she sing?
NBC released the beginning of next month's lineup of Saturday Night Live hosts and performers and we couldn't be more excited. On the list to host: Anna Kendrick and Seth Rogen. Meanwhile, we can look forward to performances from Ed Sheeran and Pharrell Williams. Who are we most excited about? Our girl Anna, of course.
Kendrick will make her SNL hosting debut on April 5. Kendrick's schedule has seemed light recently. The Pitch Perfect star just signed on for the sequel, which will hopefully be out sometime next year. Her most recent hopeful blockbuster will be this summer's Happy Christmas, though it's still months away from releasing. We can only hope part of her visit will include a surprise performance involving Kendrick and her Pitch Perfect cast mates in an effort to keep people interested in the sequel. Even without an a cappella performance from the Perfect gang, we'll be happy to tune in. Pharrell Williams is signed up to perform that night. We can't wait to see if he brings that hat!
Following Kendrick and Williams, Seth Rogen will play host on April 12. This will be his third time as host of Saturday Night Live and we can't wait to see what the funny guy brings to the studio this time around. The weekend will be made even sweeter by Ed Sheeran's Saturday Night Live debut. Sheeran has kept a low profile recently, so we can't help but wonder if his performance will segue into an announcement about a new album. Our fingers are crossed — it's been two years since the release of his debut album, +.
Before we can get to Kendrick, Williams, Rogen and Sheeran, we have one more new episode of SNL in March. Louis C.K. will close out the month, hosting SNL on March 29. On tap for musical performer is Sam Smith, who will be making his Saturday Night Live debut. Smith is a relatively new artist. In the Lonely Hour, his freshman album, releases in June.
So, who are you most excited to see take the stage at Studio 8H?
