NBC has confirmed that Justin Bieber will host "Saturday Night Live" on February 9, which was first reported by Billboard. The 18-year-old Canadian pop singer will also act as the musical guest on the episode.

The episode will mark the first time Bieber has hosted the sketch comedy show. He appeared as the show's musical guest in 2010, and after ultimately untrue rumors that he would host the show last season, he made a cameo in the 100th Digital Short.

This time around, the multi-platinum selling artist sparked the rumors himself. On Monday, he tweeted "maybe im hosting and performing on SNL...maybe. :)" after hinting on Jan. 2 that he hoped to perform on the show this year.

"SNL" won't be his only stop on the TV comedy circuit this year. Bieber is also set to appear on "The Simpsons" later in 2013.
