This isn’t the first time Perry has appeared on the show. She has already been a musical guest thrice on SNL.
Willem Dafoe previously stared in Nightmare Alley of Guillermo del Toro and in a supporting role of Norman Osborn in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The actor will be seen in upcoming movies The Northman and in Aquaman 2. You can catch Green Goblin in Spider-Man: No Way Home which is still in theatre.
On January 22, musical guests include Måneskin, an Italian rock band. This is the same band that came at second place in The X-Factor (Italy) in 2017. The group is performing for the first time. Its singer Begins was also recognized by Alternative Radio 2021 as the longest-standing #1 song.
Fans can catch the late-night comedy show on NBC at 11:30 p.m. ET, as well as on the Peacock streaming platform next week. You can also catch up on previous seasons on Peacock.
