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.

“Bleeding Love”

Leona Lewis | 2007

In 2008, The X Factor winner Leona Lewis backed up her U.K. singing competition victory with an R&B anthem for the ages: "Bleeding Love," an international hit that became the best-selling song of the year. The track was co-penned by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder (whose radio dominance would continue with songs such as Beyonce's "Halo" and Adele's "Rumour Has It") and solo artist Jesse McCartney, who was inspired by a former girlfriend, Gossip Girl actress Katie Cassidy. Given the song's success, McCartney didn't regret handing over such a personal track: "No, no," he said. "I'm so happy for Leona. She deserves it. There are really no bad feelings."
