Donald Glover Is Hosting 'SNL' and Will Also Perform as Childish Gambino

Donald Glover

Saturday Night Live announced Sunday morning that renaissance man Donald Glover will be hosting the show on May 5 with musical guest Childish Gambino, a.k.a. the rapper alter ego of Donald Glover. Glover will host an episode of the long-running NBC sketch comedy show on May 5.

This is the first time that Glover will appear on SNL as either a host or musical guest, although he did get his start as a writer on 30 Rock, which was executive produced by SNL's Lorne Michaels. He will also serve as musical guest under his stage name Childish Gambino. The news was announced on last night's John Mulaney-hosted episode.


Donald will be hitting the big screen in the upcoming Star Wars spinoff Solo: A Star Wars Story on May 25.

Childish Gambino's most recent album was 2016's "Awaken, My Love!", which earned Grammy nominations in the categories of album of the year and urban contemporary album, and just last month he announced a tour, which would be kicking off in Atlanta in September.
