Mick Jagger will be joined by Arcade Fire and Foo Fighters when he performs on the season finale of Saturday Night Live on May 19th, Entertainment Weekly reports. It's unclear what Jagger will sing with the two bands, but odds are good that he will revisit Rolling Stones classics to celebrate his band's 50th anniversary.

Jagger will be the host of the episode as well as the musical guest. Jagger has never hosted the program on his own, though he shared that duty with the rest of the Rolling Stones back in 1978. Arcade Fire and Foo Fighters are no strangers to the program either: the Canadian rock collective has been a musical guest twice, and Foo frontman Dave Grohl has performed on the show 10 times previously with the Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Them Crooked Vultures and Tom Petty.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
