The show will return with a new episode on May 5, and NBC just revealed the celebrity scheduled for that episode.

This post SNL Will Have Donald Glover Host and Perform Next Month first appeared on SPIN.

Glover joins a list of performers who doubled as both guest and host of the series, including Britney Spears, MC Hammer, Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson and more.

Saturday Night Live announced Sunday morning that renaissance man Donald Glover will be hosting the show on May 5 with musical guest Childish Gambino, a.k.a. the rapper alter ego of Donald Glover. Lately, he's demonstrated his range and versatility as the star and creator of Atlanta.

Glover holds a Golden Globe and an Emmy for his leading role on FX's Atlanta, which he also created. Before that, he was a part of the sketch comedy group Derrick Comedy, so he's no stranger to the work he'll be doing on SNL. Glover will bring his brand of comedy on the sketch side of things while his hip-hop persona Childish Gambino will take the stage as the musical guest.
