Saturday Night Live is looking to continue their resurgence as one of television’s most relevant and talked about shows once again with a lineup in the month of March that includes movie stars Octavia Spencer and Scarlett Johansson hosting, and Father John Misty and Lorde.

Announced on Thursday afternoon, Father John Misty, will perform on the popular sketch comedy show on March 4, with Lorde coming on to perform the following weekend on March 11. Fans can only hope that while Misty is at the SNL studios that he'll be doing some serious trolling, as well as most likely performing his latest single, “Ballad of the Dying Man.” His upcoming album, Pure Comedy, is set for a release the following month, so the former Fleet Foxes drummer should be getting ready for plenty of television performances to work out some new material before his upcoming gigs at both weekends of Coachella.

Unlike Father John Misty, the more conservative Lorde is finally starting to step back into the spotlight. The young New Zealand singer has been getting her fans excited with various hints and build-ups via social media for her first album since taking over the teen pop scene in 2013. Her long-awaited sophomore album should be released sometime this year, and fans are excited to hear some new material from her when she performs at Coachella, New Orleans Jazz Festival, Bonnaroo, and other major music festivals throughout the summer.  


Mark your calendars! #SNL #SNLBackstage
