Saturday Night Live has a jam-packed pop/R&B feast planned for October. The show announced upcoming musical guests, and both Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga are slated to perform.
Bruno Mars will perform on October 15th when Emily Blunt hosts, and Lady Gaga will perform on October 22nd when Tom Hanks hosts. Here’s hoping they do more than sing their newest singles, though. Each one seems primed to hop in a sketch.
Gaga and Mars both have albums coming out before the end of the year.
Gaga has recently embarked on a dive bar tour leading up to the release her upcoming fifth studio album Joanne. She released that project’s latest single “A Million Reasons” yesterday (October 6). Meanwhile, Mars just dropped the first single, “24K Magic” off his third studio album by the same name today (October 7). That album will be available November 18th.
So far, The Weeknd performed on SNL’s season premiere and Twenty One Pilots will serve as the musical guest tomorrow night (October 8) when Lin-Manuel Miranda hosts.
