Mick Jagger will host Saturday Night Live's season finale on May 19th. It will be the singer's first time hosting, but he has a long history with the show, from licking Ronnie Wood's lips while playing "Shattered" in 1978 to his uncanny impression of Keith Richards in 1993. Jagger isn't promoting a new record, and it remains unclear whether the rest of the Rolling Stones will join him on the show; the band has reportedly been rehearsing in the New York area recently.
"It's quite amazing when you think about it," Jagger told RS late last year while discussing the group's approaching 50th anniversary. "Anything is possible."
