Donald Glover Is Hosting 'SNL' and Will Also Perform as Childish Gambino

Donald Glover/Childish Gambino will be pulling double duty on May 5th's new episode of Saturday Night Live.

The show is set for May 5.

We're guessing that the head honchos at SNL were more than pleased with ratings from their recent Chadwick Boseman-hosted episode since they're taking on another week with a black star at the helm.

And, of course, the thing everyone seems to be looking forward to is the moment when he, as host, introduces himself as the musical guest. Glover is also the creator and star of Atlanta, and had one of the hilarious leading roles in Dan Harmon's comedy series, Community. The list, made up of primarily pop stars, includes Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Drake, Blake Shelton and Ariana Grande.

Around the time he landed his role on Community, Glover was also working as a writer on 30 Rock, a comedy series created by SNL legend Tina Fey. He will also serve as musical guest under his stage name Childish Gambino.
