Haim will join host, and Sean Spicer-impersonator, Melissa McCarthy for the Emmy-winning, Oscar-nominated actress’ fifth time hosting the late-night show in less than six years. Perry will perform a week later on the season finale, hosted by Dwayne Johnson.
Perry also seems set to release new music after the success of her single “Chained to the Rhythm” in February. The singer has been frequently using a cherry pie emoji as of late, apparently alluding to an upcoming project.
WE'RE PLAYING SNL AGAIN HOLY SHIT
