Katy Perry To Host 'Saturday Night Live': Singer On 'SNL' December 10th

Posted: Updated:

Russell Brand is the professional humorist in the family, but come next month, Katy Perry will take on one of the biggest jobs in comedy: hosting "Saturday Night Live."

According to a press release from EMI, the Grammy nominee will host the December 10th episode of "SNL," following the wrap of her epic "California Dreams" tour. Perry, fresh off a big night at the American Music Awards, is one of the most eccentric and high energy performers in music, and a number of her videos have shown off a flare for acting. In June, she premiered her video for "Last Friday Night," playing a 1980s-era geek hosting a party gone awry.

Perry has appeared in "SNL" skits before. In September 2010, she was the musical guest on the show and spoofed the controversy that arose after parents were upset that she wore a low cut shirt during an appearance on Sesame Street.
