Mick Jagger gets first hosting gig at 'SNL' finale

May 4th, 2012 in News

NEW YORK (AP) - Mick Jagger will test his comic chops later this month as host of the "Saturday Night Live" season finale.

The Rolling Stones frontman has been a musical guest twice before on the long-running NBC show, and the network said Thursday he will perform musically on the May 19 finale. But he has never been host before, a job that usually requires participation in several comic skits.

The Rolling Stones mark their 50th anniversary as a band this year, but have yet to announce any activities to commemorate the occasion.

Jagger last year put out a disc as part of a group called SuperHeavy, which also included reggae singer Damian Marley and former Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart.
