Following in the steps of previous ‘Saturday Night Live’ hosts like Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Justin Bieber are the latest singers recruited for the sketch comedy series. Both Levine and Bieber will host and perform on ‘SNL’ soon, but which crooner are you most excited to see on TV?
Both of these fellas have plenty of experience in front of cameras and onstage, so it’ll be interesting to see which show is more enjoyable. While Bieber, who is set to host on Feb. 9, is used to performing in front of thousands of fans on the reg, Levine can also put on a commanding, arena-sized performance with ease. Additionally, both of the guys have done some serious acting for music videos, like M5′s ‘One More Night’ clip and Bieber’s ‘As Long as You Love Me’ mini-movie.
On the other hand, when it comes to face time on TV, will Levine’s home-court advantage help him out? The ‘One More Night’ crooner has gotten really used to the TV cameras thanks to his multi-season stint as a coach on ‘The Voice.’ While the NBC reality singing competition isn’t nearly as scripted as ‘SNL’ clearly is, judging from his educated but often entertaining critiques, we think Levine will be able to tickle our funny bones on ‘SNL’ when he hosts on Jan. 26.
But don’t let the Bieber’s lack of TV time (aside from performing at like, every event ever) fool you. This kid has shown off his acting chops before, and he certainly has displayed his great sense of humor in the past. Remember his appearance on ‘SNL’ last May, where he helped the show celebrate its 100th digital short? Or when Bieber punked Taylor Swift? That was ah-mazing. Starring in his very own biopic should’ve been practice enough!
So, whose monologue are you anticipating most? Who do you want to see dressed up in silly costumes and poking fun at themselves the most? Vote Adam or Justin for the best ‘SNL’ host below, and be sure to tune in to their respective broadcasts on Jan. 26 and Feb. 9 on NBC.
