Nick Jonas revealed that he would be hosting and performing on "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday. The singer ecstatically shared the great news on social media alongside a surprise gift from his wife.

Nick Jonas is on cloud nine as he is set to take over "Saturday Night Live" this coming Saturday, February 27. The elated singer shared the great news with a series of heartwarming posts on Instagram. 

Jonas uploaded a photo of the sticker board, showing his name written twice, both as the show's host and performer alongside the date of his feature. In the caption, he described the milestone as a "dream come true."

He then followed up the announcement post with a short video of a surprise balloon decoration gifted to him by his beloved wife, Priyanka Chopra-Jonas. The elaborate bouquet spelled out "SNL" and congratulated him. He wrote in the caption:


"My wife surprised me (all the way from London) with this today. Thank you @priyankachopra, you're the best. SNL, here we come!"


The NBC late-night show also shared the announcement on social media, using a double caption to reference Jonas' double duties. While this is the first time Jonas would host the show, it's not his first time performing.

Jonas made his debut as a coach in season 18 and made it to the finals with performer Thunderstorm Artis.


The "Camp Rock" star and his brothers, Joe and Kevin Jonas, were musical guests in 2009 and 2019. During a 2016 episode, the 28-year-old performed as a solo artist.

After hosting "SNL" on Saturday, Jonas is set to make his return to "The Voice." On March 1, the 20th season of the singing competition premieres. Jonas will replace longtime coach Gwen Stefani. 


The show shared the news of his return in November via a clip. The hilarious video showed the other coaches heading into the studio to prepare for the new season when they stumble on Jonas meditating. 

In a voiceover, the singer spoke about how he has been preparing for his comeback to the show. Jonas made his debut as a coach in season 18 and made it to the finals with performer Thunderstorm Artis.

Jonas' "SNL" announcement comes shortly after "Bridgerton" star Regé-Jean Page made his hosting debut on the sketch comedy show alongside singer Bad Bunny as a musical guest artist. It was both their first time on the late-night show.
