Chance the Rapper, Tiffany Haddish to Host ‘SNL’ With Musical Guests Eminem, Taylor Swift

Saturday Night Live” announced the lineup for two more November shows on Monday morning, and it includes a bounty of musical guests: Chance the Rapper will host on Nov. 18 — with Eminem as the musical guest — and Taylor Swift will be the musical guest on Nov. 11 (the day after her sixth album, “Reputation,” drops) with “Girls Trip” star Tiffany Hadish hosting.

The Nov. 4 show, as previously announced, will feature Larry David as host and Miley Cyrus as musical guest.

Chance the Rapper has appeared on the show twice before: once in 2015, and again last year, when he appeared in a couple of sketches; he even earned an Emmy nomination for his contributions to a December 2016 episode for the song “Last Christmas.” Yet this is the first time he will be hosting, and will give the rapper another opportunity to expand his skill set, which already includes self-releasing his albums and booking his own festivals.

On Nov. 1, he will perform with The National and Gloria Estefan to close out the Obama Foundation’s first global summit on Nov. 1 at the Wintrust Arena in Chicago. The concert is free but not open to the public and the Obama Foundation is handing out more than 1,500 tickets to “our neighbors and community members who have been engaged in the Foundation’s work – including local community organizations, churches, and schools.

Chance also premiered a new song on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” late last month.
