Justin Bieber To Host Saturday Night Live?

SNL regular Alec Baldwin seemed to confirm the news during a podcast...

Justin Bieber has apparently been confirmed to host a forthcoming episode of hit US TV show, Saturday Night Live.

The rumours come courtesy of frequent SNL host and 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin, who during a Monday broadcast of his WNYC podcast Here's the Thing interviewed Saturday Night Live executive producer Lorne Michaels.

During the chat, Baldwin read from the 'legendary cork board' in Michaels' office that includes the roster of confirmed hosts for the show and in so doing, inadvertently announced that Bieber may host the show and act as its musical guest.

According to The Huffington Post, Baldwin said: "The biggest names in the business are coming here thirty-something years [after SNL's debut] to host the show,

"Ben Stiller, Melissa McCarthy, [who] won the Emmy award, and Katy Perry's coming and Jimmy Fallon, who's double-dipping on your payroll, Jonah Hill, and I don't want to ruin any other names, [but] Bieber's confirmed, he's the music and the [host]."

A source close to the show has since told our US Team that Jonah Hill is confirmed for the show, but no word yet on whether or not Bieber will stop by.

The Never Say Never star previously starred as a guest on SNL back in 2010 with Tina Fey, where he appeared in a few sketches - later describing the experience as "incredible."
