Roddy Ricch has been confirmed as the first musical guest on the first episode of “Saturday Night Live” of 2022, which will air on January 15.
Ricch will be promoting his sophomore album Live Life Fast, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
The episode will be hosted by West Side Story actress Ariana DeBose. A Golden Globe, Tony Award and Critics Choice Award nominee DeBose, who plays Anita in Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of the classic movie, will be making her hosting debut on “SNL.”
The January 15-dated episode will mark the 10th episode in the 47th season. “SNL” will continue its 47th season with new shows on January 22 and January 29.
The last episode of “SNL” aired on December 18, but due to the rapid rise of the Omicron COVID variant, the episode didn’t feature a live audience. The Paul Rudd-hosted episode aired with pre-taped sketches, while musical guest Charli XCX pulled out.
