RuPaul will host Saturday Night Live for the first time next month.
NBC’s long-running sketch comedy show is now in its 45th season. On Twitter, the show’s producers announced that Ru will host the show on February 8, with musical guest Justin Bieber.
RuPaul’s Drag Race moved from Logo to VH1 several years ago and became a mainstream hit, getting nominated for – and winning – several Emmys a year since 2017.
Fans of Ru – and Michelle Visage – loved the news on Twitter.

If RuPaul doesn’t make a grand entrance in drag for the opening monologue of SNL…throw it all away. You know what, lemme just throw this out now.
I never watch (nor have I ever watched) SNL … but it's the dawn of a new age! This gal will be watching RuPaul host SNL!
