SNL Taps Blake Shelton for Double Duty

Blake Shelton SNL

Blake Shelton will make his Saturday Night Live debut — and then some — on Jan. 24, serving as both host and musical guest.

The Voice coach’s latest album, “Bringing Back the Sunshine,” debuted in October at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

NBC’s Saturday Night Live resumes Season 40 on Jan. 17, with host Kevin Hart and musical guest Sia.

    BEST. NEWS. EVER. Really looking forward to it come January 24th.

    Looks like there’ll be a rare viewing of SNL in my house on the Jan 24.

  3. C says:

    I’ve been waiting forever for him to host. Love Blake.

  4. Eric says:

    This is awesome, and the NBC synergy makes sense. Blake is hilarious, saw him in concert last summer and he was a great performer. Music was on point and he knew how to keep the crowd entertained. Looking forward to this.

  5. Danielle H. says:

    Day has been made! Not a country music fan, but Blake is adorable and sweet and hilarious. CAN’T WAIT.

  6. Ryan says:

    I hope his episode isn’t as spiteful and unfunny as his holiday special.

  7. CK says:

    I’ll watch it since Blake is hosting, but my snl expectations are remarkably low this season. I’m guessing there will be a voice sketch/cold open w/ Jay as Pharrell, an Adam cameo, and about 5 sketches of him playing a southern father.
