Bruno Mars Tapped To Host SNL

Bruno Mars has been confirmed in the host and musical guest roles for the October 20th episode of Saturday Night Live. The "Grenade" singer will likely perform the lead single, "Locked Out of Heaven," from his forthcoming album Unorthodox Jukebox.

In 2010, Mars appeared on the show as only the musical guest, and the upcoming episode will be the first that he is hosting. He joins a handful of others-including Justin Timberlake and Mick Jagger-who have done double duty on the show.

Mars recently showed off his comedic chops in a video from In the role, Mars does some arm wrestling, demonstrates the martial arts to some children and saves a pregnant woman, dogs and a goldfish from a burning building.

Unorthodox Jukebox is due December 11.
