This will be Foxx’s second time as a host. His last appearance on the long-running sketch comedy series was in Jan. 8, 2000 with punk-pop band Blink-182 as the musical guest. The 44-year-old entertainer is coming on ‘SNL’ to promote his lead role in Quentin Tarantino’s western/slavery flick, ‘Django Unchained,’ which arrives in theaters on Christmas Day.
Meanwhile, this will be Ne-Yo’s first appearance on ‘SNL,’ as he’s there to perform songs from his new album ‘R.E.D.’ He will most likely sing his latest hit ‘Let Me Love You’ on the show, which should be exciting to watch.
This is a reunion of sorts for the talented duo, since they have worked together in the past. In 2008, Foxx appeared on the remix of Ne-Yo’s song ‘Miss Independent’ called ‘She Got Her Own,’ featuring Fabolous.
Expect some big laughs and soulful sounds on the Dec. 8 episode of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ which airs on NBC at 11:30PM EST.
