Just when Harry Styles fans thought they were in heaven thanks to his sultry new single and video “Lights Up,” the singer is about to take things to the next level: He’s hosting and performing on Saturday Night Live on Nov. 16.
Styles took to Instagram to reveal the big news Thursday morning (Oct. 24), posting a picture of SNL’s famous announcement board with the caption “SNL – DOUBLE DUTY – NOV. 16.”
This will mark Styles’ fifth time on SNL, his second as a solo artist. Styles first took the SNL stage with One Direction in 2012, performing with the group again in 2013 and 2014. Though Styles had a chance to flex his funny bone in a talk show sketch during 1D’s 2014 appearance, he further showed off his comedic abilities with a hilarious (and spot-on) Mick Jagger impression when he performed solo in 2017.
It’s likely Styles will sing “Lights Up” in his double-duty SNL appearance, and if his latest cryptic tweet means anything, it seems he may also perform a song called “Watermelon Sugar.” Two days before his SNL reveal, Styles tweeted “Kiwi walked so Watermelon Sugar could run,” which led several fans to believe that he was teasing his next release. Here’s hoping we find out by Nov. 16.
