Donald Glover is a jack of all trades. The 34-year-old has made a name for himself as a comedian, writer, actor, rapper, musician and director. He is one of a few entertainers who has won two Grammys, two Emmys, two Golden Globes and now he’s joining an even shorter list of people who appeared on a single episode of Saturday Night Live as host and musical guest.

During Saturday’s episode of the NBC show, the title card for the May 5th episode was released and showed Glover as host and musical performance. Childish Gambino is the name the entertainment magnate performs under as rapper and most recently R&B singer with the release of his album Awaken, My Love.  According to Variety, Glover will join the ranks of Jennifer Lopez, Drake, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Ariana Grande and Blake Shelton as performers who did double duty as host and guests.

Glover’s FX hit series Atlanta is currently in its second season.
