Live from New York it’s a number of award-winners and famous faces!

“Saturday Night Live” announced the hosts and musical guests for the first four episodes of the show’s 47th season: four first-time hosts and a couple of returning musical guests.

Audiences will be saying “wow” when Owen Wilson, fresh off of the first season of “Loki” and before the release of “The French Dispatch” will open the season on Oct. 2, the first time he has appeared on the show since a 2016 cameo as his “Zoolander” character Hansel. Kacey Musgraves will handle musical guest duties — and likely play songs off the recently released “Star-Crossed.” The country-pop singer previously was musical guest in 2018.

A week later, Kim Kardashian West will one-up her soon-to-be former husband by hosting the show with Halsey, herself returning to 30 Rock, acting as musical guest.

“OMFG no turning back now!!!! LOL I’m hosting SNL!!!!!!,” Kardashian West tweeted.

On Oct. 16, Oscar-winner Rami Malek will continue promoting the latest James Bond movie “No Time To Die” with musical guest Young Thug.

Finally, a week before Halloween, Jason Sudeikis, who was a cast member on the show from 2005-2013 and has returned a number of times in recent years to portray Mitt Romney and Joe Biden, will continue his “Ted Lasso” victory tour with musical guest Brandi Carlile.

“I’ve been waiting my whole life to make this announcement! Live from New York it’s Saturday night!!,” the singer-songwriter wrote on Twitter.

“Can you even believe we get to be on the same night as the wonderful Jason Sudeikis? Can’t wait to hug Ted Lasso’s neck!! See you there!”

Following the announcement of the new season’s hosts, the show is next expected to announce new and returning cast members.
