Saturday Night Live has two additional episodes slated for February 20 and 27, but no hosts and musical guests have yet been announced. The final episode of SNL before Christmas saw Dua Lipa performing with Kristen Wiig as host.
Phoebe Bridgers’ most recent album Punisher, released last June, earned her a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album. She followed it up with the companion Copycat Killer EP in November. Rateliff released his first solo album since 2013, And It’s Still Alright, last February, while Machine Gun Kelly’s latest LP, Tickets to My Downfall, came out in September.
