On Thursday (April 27), Johnson posted a photo of the May SNL lineup on his Twitter account, revealing that he will be the host on May 20. The actor even took things a step further by teasing that he may (or may not) hit the stage with musical guest Katy Perry.
“Get ready! MAY 20th I’m honored to join the iconic 5x’s @nbcsnl host club and @katyperry & I will finally duet,” Johnson tweeted. “That may or may not be true.”
Okay, it’s not like he is actually saying it will happen (let’s face it, he’s definitely joking), but we are SO on board with this idea.
Johnson can sing — remember Moana? — and obviously Perry loves a good duet and performance — see everything she’s ever done — so we are voting for this joke to become a reality.
It would be even better if they did do a duet together for one of the many hilarious SNL skits, so it was a joke song from start to finish.
The tweet also revealed two other shows and their lineup! On May 6, Chris Pine will be hosting with LCD Soundsystem as the musical guest, while Melissa McCarthy will be joined by musical guest Haim on May 13.
What do you think about a possible duet between The Rock and Katy Perry?
