Our fave drag queen, RuPual, is definitely starting this year off with a bang. From the premiere of his Netflix original called, "AJ and The Queen", and his upcoming season of, "RuPual's Drag Race" airing on VH1 later this year, he will now also host, "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday, Feb. 8.


This is big for Mama Ru because this will be his first time that he ever gets to host the late night show. He will be joined by Justin Bieber as the special musical guest in which he'll perform his new single, "Yummy".

Even though RuPaul will be hosting the show for the first time, this will not be the first time he has made an appearance on the show. He appeared on the show in the 90's alongside Charles Barkley, Muggsy Bouges, and Nirvana.


He might have lost the opportunity to host a daytime talk show on FOX as we last reported on him . But he has only won since the new year began.


#Gayes, will you be tuning in?
