Grammy Award-winning Music Superstar To Join Host "Superbad's" Jonah Hill on "SNL"

NEW YORK � March 12, 2008 � Music superstar Mariah Carey will join host Jonah Hill as musical guest on the March 15 episode of "Saturday Night Live."

This is the fourth consecutive episode of the show in its unprecedented four-in-a-row return to the air.

The Grammy Award-winning performer and songwriter makes her first appearance on "SNL" in over ten years, performing tracks from one of the most eagerly anticipated albums of the year: "E=MC2." Carey's 11th studio album � due out April 15 -- is the follow-up to "The Emancipation Of Mimi," Carey's worldwide 10 million selling #1 album, which generated three Grammy awards (including Best Contemporary R&B Album), 2 #1 singles and countless more industry honors during its 18-month stay on the charts.

The first single from "E=MC2" is "Touch My Body," written and produced by Mariah Carey is already over 80 million in audience at radio since its February release and has already been touted by Entertainment Weekly in their "Must List" as "a deliciously sexy pop single." Feature filmmaker Brett Ratner directed the video for "Touch My Body which features "30 Rock" star Jack McBrayer.

"The Emancipation Of Mimi," released April 12, 2005, was an industry phenomenon for the mega-platinum award-winning superstar - Soundscan's biggest-selling album of the year, bringing total sales of Carey's albums, singles and videos to more than 160 million worldwide, making her the most successful female recording artist in history. "Mimi" featured "We Belong Together" (winner of the Best Female R&B Vocal and Best R&B Song Grammys) and "Don't Forget About Us," Mariah's 16th and 17th #1 career singles respectively. They tied one of the most enduring chart records in Billboard Hot 100 history, Elvis Presley's 17 #1's. Mariah is now positioned as the only active recording artist in the 48 years of the Hot 100 (which began in 1958) with the potential to surpass the Beatles' all-time high of 20 #1 hits.
