Chris Stapleton, Selena Gomez SNL performances announced!
SNL is kicking off the new year with some big names: Adam Driver (the actor who plays the new villian Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and UFC legend Ronda Rousey will be hosting the first two shows of 2016. Along with that, they’ve got some pretty impressive musical guests lined up: newcomer and GRAMMYs nominee Chris Stapleton (the first person to win CMA’s for Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year all in the same year with his 2015 album “Traveller”) and former Disney star Selena Gomez.
Stapleton is set to perform on the 16th, the show hosted by Driver, while the 23-year-old Hands to Myself singer is set to perform on SNL on the 23rd, the show hosted by Rousey.
All four individuals will be making their SNL debuts with these shows.
Who else is going to be tuning in for these?!
