All the 'Saturday Night Live' Hosts and Musical Guests for Season 47

Saturday Night Live is back for Season 47 and there's dozens of celebrity hosts and musical guests set to take the stage in Studio 8H throughout the year.

The new season got underway on NBC at 11:30pm ET on October 2, 2021, with each of the following three episodes airing on subsequent weekends. Episode 5 will return on November 6.

Here's all of the hosts and musical guests confirmed to appear on Season 47 of SNL so far.

Episode 1 - Owen Wilson and Kacey Musgraves

It's hard to believe Owen Wilson hasn't previously hosted Saturday Night Live, considering he's been a major comedy star for over 20 years now. He hosted the Season 47 premiere coming off the back of a successful start to 2021, with his performance as Mobius M. Mobius on the Marvel Disney+ series Loki. He also starred in Wes Anderson's movie, The French Dispatch, which came out in theaters on October 22, 2021.

Grammy-winning country star Kacey Musgraves appeared as the first musical guest of the season on SNL. Making her second appearance as on the show, she's recently released her fifth studio album, Star-Crossed, which is out now.

Episode 2 - Kim Kardashian and Halsey

Sometimes Lorne Michaels and Saturday Night Live pick a celebrity so famous that they don't need to have a project to promote to justify hosting—and that seemed to be the case with Kim Kardashian, who presented on October 9. The reality star, entrepreneur and activist recently lent her voice to PAW Patrol: The Movie but it's unlikely she's there to push that project.

Former host Halsey supported Kardashian as the musical guest. It was Halsey's fourth time appearing on the show, and she's turned out to be a musical guest who has no problem contributing to a sketch too.

Episode 3 - Rami Malek and Young Thug

Oscar winner Rami Malek made his debut on Saturday Night Live on October 16. Famous for portraying Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, Malek also played Bond villain Lyutsifer Safin in Daniel Craig's final 007 movie, No Time To Die.

Young Thug made his first appearance as musical guest, after previous cameos as a performer alongside Kanye West in 2016, and Megan Thee Stallion in 2020. Young Thug's second studio album Punk came out on October 15.

Episode 4 - Jason Sudeikis and Brandi Carlile

SNL alumnus Jason Sudeikis returned to Studio 8H for the first time as host. He started writing for Saturday Night Live in 2003 before becoming a cast member in 2005. He's also made several cameo appearances since he left in 2013. He's since gone on to win several awards for his performance as Ted Lasso in the Apple TV+ series and his new movie South of Heaven came out October 8.

Multiple Grammy Award-winner, singer-songwriter Brandi Carlile made her debut on Saturday Night Live as musical guest, alongside Sudeikis on October 23. Her seventh studio album In These Silent Days was released on October 1.

Episode 5 - Kieran Culkin and Ed Sheeran

After a brief break, SNL will return on November 6 with Succession star Kieran Culkin as the guest host. Kieran will be following in the footsteps of his brother Macaulay Culkin who hosted the show in 1991 at the age of 11. Kieran, two years younger than Macauley, also starred in Home Alone alongside his brother. Kieran recently starred in the Steven Soderbergh movie No Sudden Move but is best known for his role in Succession, which is currently airing on HBO.

Ed Sheeran is also currently scheduled to return to Saturday Night Live but this could change after he revealed on Sunday October 24 that he had tested positive for COVID-19 and will have to self-isolate for a period of time. Should he make the show on November 6, it will be his third appearance as musical guest after also performing in 2014 and 2017. His latest studio album =, which features the singles "Bad Habits" and "Shivers" will come out on Friday October 29.
