Lil Nas X has been announced as the musical guest for the May 22 episode of "Saturday Night Live" with "The Queen's Gambit" star Anya Taylor-Joy serving as host.

On top of the performance, the out rapper also surprised fans by announcing he will debut a new song, stopping short at offering further details about the track.


The episode will also mark the show's Season 46 finale.

It was also announced that actor Keegan-Michael Key will host "SNL" on May 15 with breakout singer Olivia Rodrigo performing, The Wrap notes.

But before that, Elon Musk will host the upcoming episode on May 8. His hosting has sparked controversy as some "SNL" stars have taken issue with the tech billionaire on social media. It was recently reported, however, that cast members won't be forced to appear with Musk.

Lil Nas X will likely perform his recent chart-topping hit "Montero (Call Me by Your Name)," which he released in March. Revisit the music video below.
