RuPaul will sashay into the NBC studios for the first time as the host of the popular program, Saturday Night Live.
NBC just announced that the iconic performer will host the show on February 8th. This marks the first time that the recording artist, actor and drag superstar will host the show in her career.

RuPaul last appeared on Saturday Night Live in 1993 during a sketch. That episode was hosted by Charles Barkley.
