RuPaul to Host Saturday Night Live for First Time

RuPaul to Host Saturday Night Live for First Time


Though he appeared on the hit NBC show in the '90s, mother Ru will be making his long-awaited hosting debut in February.

Start your engines, ladies.

RuPaul will be sashaying into 30 Rock February 8 to host Saturday Night Live for the first time, with musical guest Justin Bieber.

The news came after NBC announced next month's slate on Twitter, displaying that the Emmy-winning queer icon will front the episode alongside Bieber -- one week after NFL star J.J. Watt and country music star Luke Combs front the show on February 1.

This isn't the first time RuPaul has appeared on SNL. In 1993, he appeared in a sketch on episode hosted by Charles Barkley. However, this marks the first time he's appeared as host.

The say the least, RuPaul has had a monumental year thus far.

Last month, Netflix dropped his 10-episode dramedy AJ and the Queen. Furthermore, Drag Race Season 12, All-Stars 5, and the new Celebrity Drag Race edition will be rolling out throughout 2020.

In a nutshell ... it's going to be a Happy Ru Year.
