Miley Cyrus will soon be rocking out on Saturday Night Live.
On Saturday (April 24), the long-running NBC sketch comedy show announced that Cyrus — who recently dropped her rock-flavored album, Plastic Hearts — will return as a musical guest on May 8.
The upcoming episode will also feature SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who will make his hosting debut. The announcement arrives on the heels of Musk’s SpaceX Crew Dragon Endeavour successfully docking with the International Space Station.
The entrepreneur’s SNL appearance will come just days after he and girlfriend Grimes celebrate their son X Æ A-Xii’s first birthday on May 4.
Cyrus, a Saturday Night Live veteran, last appeared in April 2020 as a surprise musical guest during the show’s second at-home episode amid the coronavirus pandemic. During the episode, the 28-year-old superstar performed Pink Floyd’s classic “Wish You Were Here” alongside producer Andrew Watt on acoustic guitar.
Over the years, Cyrus has also hosted SNL on numerous occasions, starting in 2011 with musical guest The Strokes. She later pulled double-duty as both host and musical performer in 2013 and 2015.
In recent days, Cyrus has been teasing the April 30 release date of her remix of The Kid Laroi’s “Without You.”
