New year, new SNL episodes. Saturday Night Live revealed this week that their second episode of 2015 will be hosted by country musician Blake Shelton. Shelton will make his hosting debut on January 24th, as well as be the show’s musical guest. He will follow Kevin Hart who will host the first episode of 2015 on January 17th.
Shelton has been a popular country musician for years, but has reached an even bigger following as one of the more popular judges on NBC’s The Voice. He will join the likes of fellow musicians Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake, Mick Jagger, Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and more who have taken the stage at Studio 8H. Musicians have been boom or bust hosts, not surprising since most do not have any acting or comedy experience. It will be interesting to see how Shelton does.
