Justin Bieber is on lock down inside 30 Rockefeller Plaza, getting ready for his hosting and musical guest duties for this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live,” but a few details have started to emerge about what fans can expect.
This reporting, of course, comes with a caveat – “SNL” constantly makes changes right up until each episode’s live broadcast. Even what the dress rehearsal audience sees just before the actual show can be significantly different than what actually airs.
Here’s what omg! knows so far though. Bieber's opening monologue will be Valentine's Day themed. No word yet on if he’s singing it, or speaking it, but expect it to deal with themes of love.
For his performances, Biebs is doing the normal count of two songs. The first is “As Long As You Love Me,” and the second is the new track “Nothing Like Us.” The latter choice is interesting because it’s his new breakup song about his relationship with Selena Gomez, one of three new tracks from his new Believe Acoustic album.
Again, we’ll see if the plan holds true. Bieber could change his set list on a whim and the “SNL” writers could change up the monologue right up through the dress rehearsal.
But Beliebers are anxious to see whether or not Gomez will show up. His mom, Pattie Mallette, stopped by the “Today” show this morning to share her thoughts on the topic. Since Gomez is in NYC right now for events for NYC Fashion Week, you never know!
