Kevin Hart goes live
Comedian Kevin Hart is no stranger to performing stand-up routines, but his latest gig puts him on a whole new level. Hart announced on his Twitter account that he'll soon be hosting "Saturday Night Live." The comedian, who is currently starring on the BET show "Real Husbands of Hollywood," admitted he's looking forward to hosting the longstanding skit show.
"I'm hype as [expletive] right now! This is so HUGE!" Hart wrote on his twitter.
Juicy magazine reports this will be Hart's first time hosting the popular show, though he has had plenty of experience with live TV. The comedian has previously hosted the MTV Video Music Awards, as well as the BET Awards.
Hart's episode of SNL will air on March 2. The musical guest for the night is also making a first-time appearance - the duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will hit the stage to perform their hit single "Thrift Shop." Billboard reports the catchy rap song about getting new sneakers and other duds at thrift stores, climbed to the top of the Hot 100 Chart and has remained at no. 1 for four consecutive weeks.
