Justin Bieber hints at hosting Saturday Night Live Add to ...

Justin Bieber could be the next musician to try his hand at comedy on Saturday Night Live – or so hints Bieber himself.

The 18-year-old teen-pop superstar from Stratford, Ont., has recently campaigned for the gig on his Twitter account, which has nearly 32.6 million followers.

On Monday, he sent his most direct missive yet on the topic: “maybe im hosting and performing on SNL...maybe. :)”

No official announcement has been made by NBC.

The venerable skit show will return from a holiday hiatus on Jan. 19 with host Jennifer Lawrence and musical guests the Lumineers, while Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine will host the following week’s show (with music from critically acclaimed rapper Kendrick Lamar).

Aside from Levine, this season of SNL already featured a pop star as host when Bruno Mars took centre stage for the Oct. 20 instalment, while last year’s hosts included Mick Jagger and Katy Perry.
