Lady Gaga is set to make her hosting debut on “Saturday Night Live.”

The “Born This Way” hitmaker is heading back to the “SNL” stage on Nov. 16, as host and musical guest – a double act only a handful of performers, including Justin Timberlake and Miley Cyrus, have carried out.

It will mark the singer’s third appearance on the show, following stints in 2009 and 2011, in which she performed and acted in several skits alongside hosts Ryan Reynolds and Timberlake.

Producers of the show have also announced that “The Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson will make his hosting debut on Nov. 23, the day after the highly-anticipated Catching Fire sequel hits theaters in America.
