Mick Jagger to host the season finale of 'Saturday Night Live'

05/03/2012 by Olivia Allin

Mick Jagger is slated to host and perform on the season finale of "Saturday Night Live" on May 19.

"That's right: season finale with host, Mick Jagger!!!" read a Tweet from the live sketch show's official Twitter account, posted on May 3.

The Rolling Stones front man has appeared on the NBC series twice and has also demonstrated his comedy chops in several skits, but this will be the 68-year-old Grammy winner's first hosting gig.

Last September, Jagger released an album as part of his super group SuperHeavy, which features Dave Stewart, 59, of the Eurythmics, soul singer Joss Stone, 25, reggae artist and youngest son of the late Bob Marley, Damian Marley, 33, and "Slumdog Millionaire" film composer A.R. Rahman, 46.

The first single off of the album was "Miracle Worker," which the band shot a corresponding video for in late June. Other tracks include "One Day One Night," "You're Never Gonna Change" and "SuperHeavy." Billboard described the sound as varying from straight reggae to "Indian and Jamaican rhythms" with touches of "street-smart swagger" and "cinematic string" elements.

Meanwhile, The Rolling Stones celebrate their 50th anniversary this year and plan to release a documentary in September, as well as a commemorative book later in the year.
