Tween sensation [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Miley Cyrus[/lastfm],18, is set to host the famed comedy show Saturday Night Live on March 5th. Cyrus has appeared on the show as a musical guest in the past but this will be the first time she plays host – giving the Disney darling an opportunity to showcase her comedy chops as opposed to her vocal talents.
Cyrus has been the subject of interest for the SNL cast as of late – the show has been doing a skit titled “The Miley Cyrus Show”. How fitting! Cyrus happens to think it’s pretty funny saying, “I’m a big fan of the ‘Miley Cyrus Show’ [sketch] that they do of me. I love what they do with the Kardashians [as well]. I think it’s really funny.”
The singer-actress will be joined by musical guest [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Strokes[/lastfm] who will be releasing their upcoming album Angles on March 22nd.
Cyrus has been quite the busy bee – having just wrapped up the movie So Undercover with costar Josh Bowen, who she is rumored to be dating. The starlet also teamed up with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justin Bieber[/lastfm] to create the song “Overboard (Live)” for his Never Say Never – The Remixes album which hit the web today. Fans can see the duo perform the song in Bieber’s hit 3D film, Never Say Never.
