‘SNL’: Kit Harington and Emma Stone to Host, BTS to Make Show Debut

AceShowbiz -After announcing Sandra Oh‘s gig, “Saturday Night Live” has revealed its line-up for more forthcoming episodes. The line-up features several names who will be making their debut appearance on the long-running NBC comedy, while the rest are making their return to the show.

Kit Harington has been tapped to host the show for the first time for its April 6 episode. His stint will arrive ahead of the April 14 premiere of the eighth and final season of “Game of Thrones“, on which he plays lead character Jon Snow. The Brit is currently lending his voice to “How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World“.

Alongside Kit, the episode will feature Sara Bareilles who is set to be the musical guess.

Later on April 13, Emma Stone will return to the show to serve as the emcee. The upcoming appearance of the Oscar-winning actress marks the fourth time for her to host the comedy. It seems like it won’t be long until “The Favourite” star joins the fabled 5 Timers Club and earns the coveted smoking jacket.

As for the musical guest in Emma’s episode, the top-rated comedy sketch brings K-Pop stars Bangtan Boys (BTS) to offer musical entertainment for the audience. In addition to show its growing popularity in the Hollywood scene, the stint marks one of the Rap Monster a.k.a. RM-led boyband’s first promotional opportunities ahead of their upcoming “Map of the Soul: Persona”. The highly-anticipated album is scheduled to hit the shelves on April 12.

The episode seemingly will be interesting since Emma once declared herself as a K-Pop fan. The “La La Land” actress also revealed during her appearance on “CONAN” that her favorite group was now-disbanded 2NE1.
