Dua Lipa to Pull Double Duty on Saturday Night Live May 4th

After a run of three live shows in a row, Saturday Night Live is taking a two-week break. But before heading off on vacation, the show announced its next episode.

Dua Lipa is set to both host and serve as musical guest on Saturday May 4th. She will be the second host to pull double duty this season, after Bad Bunny.

It’ll be the British-Albanian pop star’s third visit to the live sketch show. She previously appeared as musical guest on February 3, 2018 and December 19, 2020.

On her second visit to the show, which happened to coincide with Kristen Wiig’s fourth hosting stint, she memorably appeared in U.S.O. Performance, a World War II-era musical sketch that saw her playing opposite Wiig and Bowen Yang.

Lipa’s third studio album, “Radical Optimism,” releases on May 3rd (the day before her SNL return). She’s already released three singles off the album, including “Illusion,” which dropped earlier this week.

 She also recently made her feature film debut, starring opposite Henry Cavill in Argylle.

While SNL itself will be dark over the next two weeks, not everyone on staff is hitting the beach. For some, it’ll be a working vacation.

Chloe Fineman, Sarah Sherman and Chloe Troast. All three comics are scheduled to perform Saturday April 20th in Austin, Texas at the Moontower Comedy Festival.

Kenan Thompson will be performing, too. He’s booked for 2 shows at The Stress Factory in Bridgeport, CT on April 25th, and 6 shows at Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club in Las Vegas from April 26-28.
