Nick Jonas To Host, Perform New Single 'Spaceman' On 'Saturday Night Live'


Nick Jonas is pulling double duty on Saturday Night Live!

The "Chains" singer-songwriter will serve as both the host and the musical guest during next week's (February 27) broadcast of the late-night sketch comedy show. "A dream come true. Let’s get it @nbcsnl!! See you February 27th!” Jonas shared on Instagram.

More excitingly, the 28-year-old will be performing a brand-new song, titled “Spaceman,” which will premiere just days before his double-duty gig. “Spaceman launches February 25th. The countdown begins now…” Jonas teased with the artwork for his new single.

Since announcing the song, Jonas has also shared several clips from the music video on Instagram, including a scene depicting the singer as an astronaut being blown toward the sky by a gust of wind.

Jonas is no stranger to the SNL stage, having appeared and performed on the show three times in the past. He appeared on the show in 2009; starred in sketches Huge Jewelry and Pool Boy and performed “Close” and “Champagne Problems” in 2016; and returned to the show in 2019 to perform with fellow Jonas Brothers members, Kevin Jonas and Joe Jonas.

While it’s been five years since Nick released his last album, Last Year Was Complicated, “Spaceman” appears to be the dawn of a new music era for the crooner, who hasn’t released any solo material of his own in three years.

“Spaceman” will be Nick’s first single to come following the release of 2018’s “Right Now” (with Robin Schulz) and “Anywhere” (with Mustard).
