Rodrigo, who first performed on “SNL” in 2021, recently picked up six Grammy nominations for “Guts,” her second album, which she will take on a world tour beginning in 2024.

McKinnon will make her “SNL” hosting debut on Dec. 16, a milestone often taken on by former cast members of the show. She left “SNL” in 2022 after working on the show for 10 years, during which she was nominated for 10 Emmys, winning two. Earlier this year, she appeared in Warner Bros.’ “Barbie” movie, playing Weird Barbie.

Eilish returns to “SNL” for the third time after first serving as musical guest in 2019 and pulling double duty as both host and guest in 2021. She wrote the “Barbie” song “What Was I Made For?,” which earned her five Grammy nominations, this year, along with another for best pop duo/group performance alongside Labrinth for “Never Felt So Alone.”

As previously announced, the Dec. 2 episode will be hosted by Emma Stone, who is currently starring in the Showtime series “The Curse” and will soon be seen in “Poor Things.” Noah Kahan will be the musical guest.
