Miley Cyrus To Host Saturday Night Live; Tina Fey Returning For Season Premiere

Get ready for some “pretty cool” news — Miley Cyrus is taking her act to “Saturday Night Live.”

The starlet will pull double duty as host and musical guest for “SNL” on October 5, NBC announced on Monday.

It’s the latest gig for Miley on the heels of her headline-making performances at the MTV Video Music Awards and then on a German TV show, where Miley spanked a twerking little person.
