Donald Glover is set to host and be the musical guest on the May 5 episode of Saturday Night Live. The episode will mark the first time Glover will appear on the sketch show.

It’s rare for artists to take over hosting duties and to perform as the musical guest. Glover will join a relatively short list of musicians who have done double duty on SNL, including Drake, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, and Justin Bieber.

Glover’s Saturday Night Live appearance comes at a busy time for the star. He’s starring as Lando Calrissian in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story film, lending his voice to Simba in the Lion King remake, and of course is starring, writing, producing, and directing his TV show, Atlanta.

Look out for Glover’s episode of Saturday Night Live arriving May 5. Are you excited to see Glover’s takeover of SNL? Let us know in the comments below.
