Next month the multi-talented entertainer Donald Glover will be pulling double duty on the hit comedy-sketch show Saturday Night Live. Set to not only host the show, Glover will be bringing out his alter ego Childish Gambino to perform as the night’s musical guest.

As announced during tonight’s episode, Glover’s double duty show will air on Saturday, May 5. Glover will be joining an elite club of double performers which includes the likes of Drake, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Blake Shelton, and Ariana Grande. This will mark the first time Glover has appeared on the show in either capacity.

Glover has previously worked for NBC when he wrote for Tina Fey’s comedy 30 Rock and starred in Dan Harmon’s Community. Glover will also soon appear as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story and as Simba in a new live-action of Disney’s The Lion King. Childish Gambino’s most recent album was 2016’s Awaken, My Love!.
