Harlow released his second studio album, Come Home the Kids Miss You, in May, which included the #1 single “First Class.” He’s also set to star in the upcoming big-screen reboot of White Men Can’t Jump.
Harlow is the latest star to host during the current Season 48: Miles Teller, hot off the blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick, hosted the Oct. 1 season premiere, with Kendrick Lamar serving as musical guest. Brendan Gleeson hosted the Oct. 8 episode with musical guest Willow, and Megan Thee Stallion was both host and musical guest this week.
