Justin Bieber has been n New York City all week to prepare for his TV gig on “Saturday Night Live” tonight. He survived Winter Storm Nemo and even treated a few of his fans waiting outside the “SNL” studio to free pizza. On Feb. 9, Biebs tweeted, “Hello world! TODAY is the DAY! I’m on #SNL TONIGHT! Make sure to watch. Gonna be funny.” He certainly seems excited about his appearance and said earlier that nothing is off limits.
On Saturday, Justin Bieber will do double duty as the host and musical guest on “SNL. He’s been on lock down all week, but a few details have started to emerge about what fans can expect tonight. His monologue will focus on Valentine’s Day, but expect a few mentions about Winter Storm Nemo.
In addition to starring in several skits, Justin will perform “As Long As You Love Me” and “Nothing Like Us.” However, “SNL” constantly changes things up at the last minute, so almost anything is possible. In the past, what the dress rehearsal audience and live show audience see is often very different.
To catch Justin Bieber in action on “Saturday Night Live,” tune in at 11:30 p.m. EST on Feb. 9 on NBC.
