Last month, SNL announced JAY-Z would be opening season 43 as a musical guest. Today the show shared via Twitter that Sam Smith and P!nk will be following him up in the next two episodes. The season opener will be hosted by Ryan Gosling, while Smith and P!nk are joined by Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot on October 7 and Silicon Valley actor Kumail Nanjiani on October 14. JAY-Z will no doubt be performing music off of 4:44, while Smith’s performance follows the release of his new single “Too Good At Goodbyes.” P!nk’s next album Beautiful Trauma comes out October 13, the day before her SNL appearance. The new season of SNL premieres next week on September 30.
