Justin Bieber is set to host ‘Saturday Night Live’ for the first time at some point this year. Do you think he’ll time it around his album release?

Justin Bieber has been a recurring face on Saturday Night Live, but he’s never actually hosted before — which is something we can’t wait to see in 2012!

During an interview with executive producerLorne Michaels , Alec Baldwin previewed the chat, saying, “The biggest names in the business are coming here thirty-something years [after SNL’s debut] to host the show. Ben Stiller, Melissa McCarthy, [who] won the Emmy award, and Katy Perry‘s coming and Jimmy Fallon, who’s double-dipping on your payroll, Jonah Hill, and I don’t want to ruin any other names, [but] Bieber’s confirmed, he’s the music and the [host].”

Justin, 17, was the musical guest on the weekly show two years ago in April and then was a guest star last February. We haven’t seen Justin show off his acting chops too much yet, so we’re stoked to see him carry an entire sketch comedy show.

The Bieb’s third studio album, Believe, is set to drop sometime this spring, so we bet he’ll schedule his appearance around the release.

Are YOU excited to see Justin rock on SNL?
