2/9 Justin Bieber
Pop sensation Justin Bieber will be pulling double duty as host and musical guest of tonight's show. While we're certainly not "beliebers", I think he might actually make a good SNL host. When he made his first SNL cameo appearance back in 2010 in the classroom sketch below (he looked so young!), he really held his own opposite Tina Fey. He had great comedic timing and a stage presence that made me think back then that he would make a great host. And after the successful hosting stint of Bruno Mars earlier this season, I think Bieber might follow in his foot stops turn out to be another great pop star turned SNL host. Check out some of his previous SNL appearances below, followed by some promos for tonight's show!
2/16 Christoph Waltz (with musical guest Alabama Shakes)
After the Bieber Fever winds down, Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz will take his turn as host. The Django Unchained star (for which he is once again Oscar nominated) is not really known for comedy, so I'm not really sure how he'll do on SNL. I have to admit that I have not seen Django Unchained or any of his films, so I really don't know what to expect from Christoph Waltz. However, I do know that as an Oscar winner, he's obviously a great actor, which should be helpful in playing the various characters he'll have to portray on the show. Jennifer Lawrence was similarly an Oscar-nominated actress known mainly for her dramatic work (who I also wasn't really familiar with) and she did ok, though not great. Should be interesting to see of Christoph Waltz can pull it off! Check out the promo below!
