New York, NY - April 1, 2010 - "Saturday Night Live" returns with original shows starting April 10 with Tina Fey returning to studio 8H, and musical guest Justin Bieber.

Emmy-winner Tina Fey takes her second turn at hosting on April 10. Fey is executive producer, head writer and star of NBC's three-time Emmy Award-winning comedy series "30 Rock" and currently stars in the feature film, "Date Night," with Steve Carell out April 9. Prior to creating "30 Rock," Fey completed nine seasons as head writer, cast member and co-anchor of the "Weekend Update" segment on NBC's "Saturday Night Live."

Platinum selling pop sensation Justin Bieber makes his debut musical guest appearance alongside Tina Fey on April 10th. Bieber's latest album released on March 23, "My World 2.0," debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart, while his single "Baby," featuring Ludacris, debuted at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and continues to climb the charts. At only 16 years old, Bieber has already made history as the first solo artist to send four songs off his debut album into the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 before the album was even released. Additionally, Justin's debut CD "My World" went RIAA platinum in seven weeks, exceeding one million album sales.

Ryan Phillippe will make his hosting debut on April 17. Phillippe will star in the feature film adaptation of the "SNL" sketch, "MacGruber," due out May 21 alongside Val Kilmer and current SNL cast members, Kristen Wiig and Will Forte.

His other credits include "Way Of The Gun," "Breach" and Clint Eastwood´┐Żs "Flags Of Our Fathers."

KeSha will make her musical guest debut appearance on April 17. Her debut album, Animal, entered the Billboard Top 200 at number one and hit number one on the Digital Albums charts when it was released in January. "Animal" holds the record for the best-ever digital-album sales for a new artist and is the third-biggest digital-album debut by a female. It also marked the biggest first week in SoundScan history for an artist's debut album released in January. Her first single, "TiK ToK," spent a record-setting nine weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and has sold over 4 million copies in the U.S. and nearly 6 million units worldwide. KeSha's second single, "Blah Blah Blah," reached number one on the iTunes Top 10 Singles Chart and her third single "Your Love Is My Drug" is impacting radio now.

Gabourey Sidibe will serve as host on April 24. Sidibe made her film debut as the title role in the 2009 Academy Award-winning film, "Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire." Her role garnered her an Academy Award nomination as well as a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Actress categories, and she won both the NAACP Image Award and the Independent Spirit Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Lead Role. Additionally, the film won numerous awards, including two Academy Awards, a Golden Globe, and a Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury Award. Sidibe will next appear in the Showtime series, "The Big C," opposite Laura Linney.

Grammy-nominated band MGMT will perform for their first time in studio 8H on April 24. MGMT will release their second album, "Congratulations," on April 13th.
