Saturday Night Live announced their December lineup today and they've chosen some of hip hops biggest names to start and close out the month.DaBaby is set to be the musical guest for host Jennifer Lopez's show on December 7th.
The musical guest usually performs two songs during the first half and the last half of the show. It will be exciting to see which songs DaBaby chooses to perform. It's likely he will plug his latest single "BOP," which is off of his sophomore album Kirk. The directors and camera crew for SNL are known to be pretty adventurous, so i'm hoping we'll see some kind of follow up to the Hip Hop Musical concept he debuted in the "BOP" music video last week. This might be a stretch, but cast members Pete Davidson and Chris Redd like to do music video-type sketches with rap guests and DaBaby could be the perfect fit.
For their last show of 2019 SNL is giving Eddie Murphy hosting duties with Lizzo as the musical guest. Murphy was a cast member from 1980 - 1984 and is often credited for saving the show with his massively popular sketches. And given Lizzo's charismatic personality, we might even see her pop up in a few sketches.
Hopefully we'll have some iconic moments to write about come December!
