Justin Timberlake to Host SNL for Fifth Time

Justin Timberlake on 'Saturday Night Live'

Justin Timberlake will host Saturday Night Live for the fifth time on March 9; he is also expected to fulfill the musical guest duties of the night.

The "Suit & Tie" hitmaker - who recently made his long awaited return to music following a hiatus to focus on his movie career - will also perform on the comedy sketch show. This is a busy time for Justin, who is preparing for the release of his comeback album The 20/20 Experience on March 19.

He has also been confirmed to headline Wireless festival in the UK, along with Jay-Z, with whom he collaborated on "Suit & Tie." Rapper Jay will make his only European appearance of 2013 when he performs at the event, to be held at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London on July 12 and 13. Joining both artists on the bill are Snoop Dogg, John Legend, Frank Ocean, Rita Ora, DJ Fresh and Calvin Harris, with many more acts to be announced at a later date.

Promoter Steve Homer from Live Nation said, "Wireless Festival has gone from strength to strength since its inception in 2005, we're incredibly excited to take it to its new home, London's iconic Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, and are delighted to secure Justin Timberlake and welcome back Jay-Z."
