Mick Jagger to host TV show in US
Sir Mick Jagger will test his comic skills later this month as host of the Saturday Night Live season finale in the US.
The Rolling Stones frontman has been a musical guest twice on the long-running NBC show.
The network said he will perform musically on the May 19 finale, but he has never been host before, a job that usually requires participation in several comic sketches.
The Rolling Stones mark their 50th anniversary this year but have yet to announce any activities to commemorate the occasion.
The singer last year put out a disc as part of a group called SuperHeavy, which also included reggae singer Damian Marley and former Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart.
