On Saturday Night Live, Jonas will perform his newly announced single “Spaceman”, which will drop two days before his SNL appearance, on February 25. Jonas last appeared on Saturday Night Live in 2019. He later reunited with his brothers Kevin and Joe Jonas to perform as the Jonas Brothers, marking a decade since they had previously been the musical guests on the show. He also performed as a solo artiste in a 2016 episode hosted by Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Jonas is the latest artiste to be booked as both the host and the musical guest on SNL after performers Harry Styles, Chance the Rapper, Halsey and Drake. Besides SNL, Jonas will be returning to the judge’s chair for the 20th season of singing reality show The Voice that premieres on March 1, and four days later will see the release of his upcoming film Chaos Walking.
