“‘SNL’ is a global phenomenon and this livestream marks the first time audiences around the world will experience the show simultaneously along with the US,” Frances Berwick, Chairman, Entertainment Networks, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, shared in a statement. “It’s incredibly exciting to create this worldwide event with host Elon Musk and musical guest Miley Cyrus. We thank our international partners and YouTube for helping us make it happen.”

Musk’s hosting gig is unique compared to the usual slate of actors and musicians who’ve hosted throughout the sketch comedy show’s 46th season. This will be the Tesla CEO’s first time hosting and Cyrus’ sixth time as a musical guest. Cyrus has previously hosted in 2013 and 2015.
