Keke Palmer To Make ‘Saturday Night Live’ Hosting Debut w/ SZA As Musical Guest

We absolutely love to see Black women doing dope things!

Grab your popcorn and set your DVRs because Keke Palmer and SZA are coming to ‘Saturday Night Live!’

According to reports, on Saturday, December 3rd, singer/actress Keke Palmer will be hosting the classic comedy sketch show alongside R&B songbird SZA as the musical star of the evening.

The late-night phenomenon took to their Twitter account to make the announcement.

Following the news of Keke Palmer and SZA’s anticipated appearance in the live series, each of the ladies expressed their excitement.

SZA wrote on her Instagram with the show’s promotional photo attached:

“Can’t believe this is happening lmao. I plan on acting a f*cking fool. See you soon New York.”

The ‘Shirt‘ songstress’ slot on ‘Saturday Night Live’ will mark her second visit to the variety show–her first being back in 2017, following the release of her debut album, CTRL.

If you didn’t know, an uber-talented SZA is gearing up for the unveiling of her sophomore project, which is said to be coming “any day now.” The official music video for her latest track, ‘Shirt,’ reached #1 on YouTube US.

Palmer, on the other hand, will serve as a first-time host on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ The ‘Nope’ starlet was seen celebrating the huge accomplishment over dinner on her Instagram Story.

Palmer eagerly tweeted:

“Y’all got y’all’s wish… guess who’s hosting @nbcsnl? I’m so excited for usss y’alllllll, couldn’t do it without you.”

It’s been a busy year for the 29-year-old. Just recently, she launched her own digital platform, KeyTV, “spotlighting a new generation of creators.” She also landed a new podcast, ‘Baby, This Is Keke Palmer,’ with Amazon Music.
